How to Decorate Your Thanksgiving Dinner Table

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and if you plan to host this year, a lot of preparation needs to be done. From the food to the décor, creating a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere for your family and friends is the perfect way to show appreciation for them.

Here are a few tips to help you create a gorgeous and functional Thanksgiving dinner table!

Break Out the Fine China

Many people allow their most beautiful dish sets to collect dust somewhere on display, but Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion to show them off! Break out your fine china and set your table with your loveliest silverware and cloth napkins. Your guests are sure to be impressed with such a professional setup.


Personalization is a great way to help your guests feel more welcomed and included in your Thanksgiving festivities. Try making place cards with each guest’s name on them, written in cursive for a subtle, elegant flair, or if you have kids, allow them to draw and make colorful, fun ones for each person! Not only do place cards take the pressure out of deciding where to sit, but they are a cute way to make your loved ones feel special and important.

Incorporate Mood Lighting

Try setting the mood with the warm glow of candlelight. You can use anything from traditional dinner candles to tea lights in festive holders, or you could even lay out some string lights down the center of the table or incorporate them within your centerpiece. Dim the overhead lights and create a relaxing, homey environment around the Thanksgiving table. 

Add Floral Arrangements

Thanksgiving floral arrangements are a must for your dinner table! They add natural beauty and lingering autumn scents to the room. The colors of fall spread across your table, from deep purples to bright oranges, truly tie everything together.
