It’s the 1st of November. Do you know what your Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating plan is? Inspiration is everywhere, and we thrive on it here at Places In The Home. Let me share with you a few of the Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating suggestions and finds in seasonal color, texture and pattern to set the holiday tone and the Thanksgiving table with the look of the season.
Birds of gorgeous feather colors flock together among 6′ baby tear and frosted eucalyptus garlands from Hobby Lobby. Duck hunting in the Sportsman’s Paradise goes with the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, and this new to me find sets the scene- one very well known to the men of the Places In The Home family.
Fall clearance sales are underway much to the delight of the tablescape maven. May I also suggest checking out dollar, craft, hobby, and fabric stores for candles, candle holders, decor, chargers, etc… Dollar stores are inexpensive to begin with, so there’s that. The upside to Christmas and holiday items being stocked and displayed on a store shelf near you earlier and earlier each year is the deep discounts on fall and harvest themed items shoppers see sooner and sooner in the season. The cream craft pumpkin from Lowe’s is 50% off, and the Ashland Finial Vase from Michael’s is on clearance. Both are calling my name.

After creating the gallery I remembered Dollar Tree stocks a white stoneware dinner plate with gold rim. You can’t go wrong with a set of white dinner plates with gold or platinum rims. A simple yet elegant white dinner plate makes a strong argument for the perfect foundation plate, and complements almost every china pattern known to man.
My style preference leans traditional. Classic tableware and vintage linens set most of my holiday tablescapes and Thanksgiving tabletop, but I do like to gift the eye a decorative surprise.
Marry a traditional china pattern to a modern and/or contemporary pattern.
Intermingle pops of bold color with the customary fall palette.
Mix seasonal buds and branches with roses and taxidermy.
I am always impressed and amazed when decor accents and accessories that normally would not be paired together come together in perfected contrast to create remarkable beauty.
Dessert compotes remind me of my grandmother- a woman who mastered the art of the holiday table with signature style and grace.
One of the best pieces of Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating advice I can offer is this: I embrace the words do small things with great love. Incorporate pieces, finds and treasures you love into your Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating. Personal mementos and collections tell a compelling all things house that make a home story.
