Thanksgiving Tablescape


Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?! I can't even believe it. Then it'll be Christmas! Where has 2015 gone?! Seriously it's blowing my mind. Anyways, today I thought I'd share my Thanksgiving tablescape/dining decor with you all! It took me a whole hour to put together and is soooo easy to do. You don't need anything fancy either so it's a win-win. Now the irony of this entire thing is that I'm not having Thanksgiving or anyone over for that matter but wanted to decorate and set up a chic tablescape. This is my event planner side. Soo.... I hope you guys find some inspiration from this for your tablescape! 



My overall theme for this was chic and simple, but still festive. I stuck with white, gold and orange as my color scheme with pops of brown and the navy plaid napkins. I love the plaid as it's an unexpected pattern for Thanksgiving but love the way it pulls the entire table and room together. 



For my centerpiece I just took this white cake stand, added some mini pumpkins and my gold decorative object and some leaves and voila! Instant centerpiece. It's simple and the perfect height so guests aren't having to look around it to chat with one another or pass dishes. 


I took my white DIY chalkboard I made and wrote the menu on it. It adds nice height to the buffet and let's guests know what they will be eating. 


I made the namecards from gift tag stickers I got from Target in their holiday section. I just cut cardstock out, folded it over and stuck the sticker on front. It cost me under $10 and about 10 minutes to make! 


The 'Give Thanks' banner I made myself and hung up with twine and mini clothespins from Target's $1 section. True life Target's $1 is the bomb.com and the perfect spot to get little decor items for the holidays! If you want to cut and hang your own here is the link to the print out

The buffet runner is something I picked up from Wal-Mart for under $10! It's a great size for your buffet or if you have a long enough table, for your table. 



The placemats are from this party set I got on clearance at HomeGoods. I'm excited to use them again for other parties! The gold chargers are from Target but you can get them anywhere. All the plates and bowls are from Home Goods too. The gold rimmed tumblers are from At Home. Napkins, dishes, goblets and silverware I had and I'm not sure where my parents got them from. 


I added this glass vase with filing from Hobby Lobby to make it a little more festive. Throw some fake leaves and wham-bam fall-ified. 

My bar cart is from Target and I LOVE it! It's definitely something worth purchasing especially if you plan to entertain (like I do!). Plus, it just looks really pretty too! ;)






Also, please excuse the weird coloring in the photos. It's been really gloomy and rainy here in Kansas so the lighting isn't the greatest. :/ 


Most of the items shown are things I got a while back or I can't find online. I apologize for that! My favorite places to shop for entertaining items are Taret, HomeGoods/TJ Maxx/Marshall's, Kirkland's Home, At Home, Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart. 

The decor is nothing extravagant or fancy, just very simple and chic. You can use whatever other fall decor you want like pinecones, acorns, bigger pumpkins, more signs, etc. Pinterest if a great spot to get some more tablescape inspo too! 

I will be doing a Christmas themed tablescape so check back in December for that! I hope you guys enjoyed my little Thanksgiving set up and maybe got a little inspired for your own dining situation! If you set one up or take inspo from mine, I'd love to see it! Tag me on Instagram or Twitter (@samantha_goble)! 

I hope everyone has a blessed and safe Thanksgiving! Eat lots of turkey, watch football and enjoy the company of your friends and family!
