Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas
posted on November 25, 2015 | by Amanda Holstein
Although I have yet to host my own holiday dinner (and barely have room in my apartment to do so), I find myself constantly inspired by tabletop decor, particularly rustic Thanksgiving tablescapes. This is most likely because I’m always dreaming of the day I’ll finally have my own house with a dining table and room to host friends. Luckily, I have my brother’s dining table to
takeover decorate this year until that day comes.
Similar to my home decor, I like my tabletops rustic, bohemian and light. The looks I’ve rounded up below have some pretty creative ideas: a centerpiece of white milk bottles filled with herbs, feathers at each place setting, and cinnamon sticks in napkin rings. So whether or not you’re hosting your own Thanksgiving, get inspired by these rustic Thanksgiving tablescape ideas below!
Beachy & Rustic
I love how this look combines a casual beachy vibe with that bohemian rustic look I love. The blues and whites create a coastal style. Mix them with a copper and white centerpiece filled with greenery and you have a perfect combination of the two.
It can be difficult to make a bohemian tabletop look sophisticate, but Sarah Sherman Samuel nails it with this look. The mix of black and gold create a luxe vibe, while the natural greenery and feathers add that touch of boho.
The great thing about rustic table decor is that you can keep it simple without it looking boring. Try a simple burlap runner and cover it with herbs and leafy greens. Add some white florals and simple tableware for a minimal, natural look.
If you want a more glamorous look, keep the greens to a minimum and focus on gold, copper, and marble. Add in a couple raw touches, like cinnamon sticks and twigs in the napkin rings.
For something more cozy, go for soft hues like gray, white, and tan. Add some feathers, herbs, and nuts for a natural touch. I love how casual yet put together this look feels, perfect for making your guests feel at home.
