Neutral Thanksgiving Tablescape

November 21, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow is the big turkey day, and we are super excited to be hosting our family for Thanksgiving dinner this year.

When we built our very first farmhouse table we envisioned this very day among many others sharing memories with family and making new ones. When our family gets together we always gather around the table to eat, chat and play games. Our table is the centerpiece to our family gatherings so each holiday or gathering I like to make it a little extra special with some beautiful decor.

Thanksgiving Tablescape

This year I had planned a completely different centerpiece, and table settings, but as life happens it didn’t work out. I looked all over Tuesday for the supplies I needed and of course, not enough time to order anything I had planned.  (I like to wait to the last min to do things. It keeps the stress levels high! We could always use a bit extra stress this time of year right?)  So I reworked the original ideas with items I had mostly on had.

Four Sack Napkins DIY

I did purchase these flour sack towels. 1 because I could not find cloth napkins and 2. I liked the rustic natural look to them.  I did cut the towels in half because they were pretty big. I grabbed a 5 pack at Walmart for I think around $5. You can also grab them off Amazon too for pretty cheap! To seam the cut edge I just used some iron-on seam tape. It worked like a charm! I folded them and tied them with a simple burlap ribbon and some greenery I had in my stash!



Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I reused my fall farmhouse box centerpiece that I had filled with dollar store greenery and pumpkins as well as these amazing mercery jars that accent the silverware and the silver rim of the plates. I also layered two coordinating table runners for extra depth. The burlap table runner is a bit larger and longer than the green for a layering effect.


I love the way it turned out and even though my original plan didn’t work I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

In true Thanksgiving fashion, we want to send out a very special thank you to our amazing readers and customers! Without you, none of this would be possible! We are so thankful for each and every one of you!

We hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving!
