Thanksgiving Table Decorations

The dinning table is always such a focal point for meals and it's no different for Thanksgiving. People always like to go all out and create a WOW moment.  This year we gathered some of the best ideas we could find that would make a huge impact at your dinner, but are also easy to make. 


1. Give Thanks Table Runner


This item is so compact you can bring it with you if you are going out of town and give it as a great hostess gift.











2. Copper Pumpkins Fall Centerpiece

These are a fun handmade decor DIYs perfect for Fall.  My go to colors this Fall are copper and white, but you can choose any color combo you want.  For this craft project, we are going to transform dollar store pumpkin pails into a lovely Fall centerpiece for around  $2. 


3. Thanksgiving Tablescape

Corn tassels, dried seed pods, and white pumpkins complete this country chic look.








4. Put Your Stamp on Cocktail Napkins

Enlist the kids to stamp colorful messages and design onto cocktail napkins before guests arrive.








5. Box Grater Luminaries

Create moody ambience on a sideboard with this flickering display. Arrange multiple vintage box graters on a tray. Illuminate with flameless flickering LED votives to prevent the metal graters from becoming too hot to handle. Fill in gaps on tray with acorns and extra candles.


6. White Pillar Candles

Arrange a large group of scentless white pillar candles in various heights on a large wooden tray in the center of your dining table.  Add wheat stalks, fresh fruit, and gourds for an extra festive display.





7. Gourd Candlesticks

Hollow out the middle of a couple miniature gourds and pumpkins, then slide in a taper candle for a seasonal DIY candlestick.



8. Gilded Fruit Centerpiece

Cover artificial pomegranates with copper leaf for festive décor that will never spoil.







9. Squirrel and Acorn Garland

A toll of craft paper makes a fun tablecloth for the kid’s table-make sure to set out terra-cotta pots filled with crayons *and pears, for decoration).






10. Family History

What better time than Thanksgiving, with everyone gathered at the same table, to learn more about your family? Devising a table setting with photographs inspires everyone present to reminisce and tell stories that can be shared from one generation to another. Ask guests to share or bring photos and to include information, such as names and dates, on the photo backs. Photos can be duplicated using


11. Customized Place cards

I’m not sure what it is, but when I go to someone’s home, and I see my name at a place setting… I get all “giddy,” inside, and I suddenly feel a little more “welcomed.”


12. Mini Rosemary Wreaths

This is so easy, but adds a little something to each persons plate & it leaves a great scent in the air.







13. Giving Thanks Place Mats

An easy activity and a gentle reminder to be thankful for everyone and everything at your feast.
