Let me tell y’all, every store except the market is ready to skip Thanksgiving. It was literally still weeks away when I went shopping for table setting items and the stores were CLEARED of Thanksgiving. I went to Michales.. nothing. Then Marshalls.. a little more but still not much. Then Target and it was full-blown Christmas. I thought HomeGoods was a shoo-in.. you guessed it not so much. It was definitely one of the best options but still, Christmas was taking over. My next best idea was Hobby Lobby but we didn’t go, so you could give it a shot and let me know how that goes.
Moral of the story, you need to get your shop on before Halloween. At least, if you want the best of the best and it is all easy to find lol.
You can 100% get creative and use things you already have as well.
This year we went for a simple setting. Neutral tones, a pop of green and accents of gold.
What I really wanted where the greenery was is a super sheer chiffon table runner to a bunch along the center. Easily could grab that from Jo-Anns Fabrics and make that your bold piece. A stunning rust orange color *chefs kiss*.
a simple + classy thanksgiving table setting:
-twine or a napkin rings ( regular rings)
-twig / leaf / herb to top the napkins
-could also add additional short glasses for water (pop of color or clear glass)
-silverware ( 2 forks, 1 spoon, 1 knife) + serving spoons
-center of the table accents
-greenery / florals
the whole spread
I love simplicity because once you add other fix-ins like salt and pepper, gravy and cranberry sauce, a full-blown decorated table may be too much for functionality (depending on your table size hehe). What you can also do for the little cornucopia is little floral arrangements.
I hope you guys found some sort of inspiration for your own table settings.
I love the creativity you can put into this part of Thanksgiving (and it doesn’t require slaving over a hot stove for hours). Once you pick a color scheme and vibe you can look for more inspiration from Pinterest.
The possibilities are endless and I could talk about it all day lol. So if you need help deciding between silverware and cups or really anything.. then I am your girl lol.
I hope you guys have an easy time finding exactly what you’re looking for and at an amazing price!
Let’s catch the wave!
