“I am so excited to start a 12 month series on How to Set an Elegant Table All Year Long.

All of the table settings will start with this basic set of tableware.

Each month, I will add fun ideas to fit the theme of the month.

What I want to convey through this series, is that you can set beautiful tables all year long without breaking the bank.

You do not need 12 sets of dishware.

You do not need 12 sets of chargers or table linens.

You just need a few basics and a few tweaks each month to make your table settings fun and festive each month.”

You will need: woven table runner, Leather chargers, white dinner plates, white salad plates, copper cloth napkins, copper organza cloth napkins, wine glasses, water glasses, silver napkin rings, silverware, feathers, realistic pumpkins, faux pomegranates, faux artichokes, brass candlesticks, flameless taper candles. hydrangeas, eucalyptus stems.

I love a beautiful thanksgiving table all decked out with a beautiful floral centerpiece, gorgeous place settings, cloth napkins in fall colors, tucked into napkin rings.  

Pine cones, fall leaves, mini pumpkins and thanksgiving decorations carefully arranged on a festive table runner, to create an elegant thanksgiving table.  

Whether using fine china or my favorite white plates, mixed with gold-rimmed glasses these ideas will help you create a traditional thanksgiving table setting perfect for your Thanksgiving feast.

The centerpiece doesn’t have to be elaborate.  

Grocery store flowers tucked in a beautiful vase atop wood slices-would make the perfect easy thanksgiving centerpiece that your family members would love.  

It’s a beautiful setting for great conversations around the table.  Sharing what they are each thankful for.

For this year’s Thanksgiving table, I chose to use my white dinner plates as part of my 12 month series of creating a beautiful table setting-all using the same everyday white dinner and salad plates.  

By just changing out some of the accessories or holiday table decorations, you can create so many unique and beautiful tablescapes without breaking the bank.

Now you have all the tips and tricks to craft that perfect Thanksgiving table-whether your style is Modern Farmhouse with casual table settings  or you like a more formal table setting with gold chargers and pretty wine glasses-Thanksgiving is the perfect time to gather for great food and those you love around the dinner table.

Setting a Thanksgiving Table with French Country Flair

The French country style is known for its warm and inviting atmosphere, making it the perfect choice for a Thanksgiving tablescape. To create a French country-inspired Thanksgiving table, start with a neutral base, such as a white tablecloth and light-colored placemats. Then, add pops of color and texture with fresh flowers, candles, and natural elements like pinecones, acorns, and leaves.

Here are a few tips for creating a French country Thanksgiving table:

  • Use fresh flowers. Fresh flowers are a staple of French country decor. For your Thanksgiving table, choose flowers in warm autumnal colors, such as oranges, reds, and yellows. Arrange the flowers in simple vases or baskets, and place them throughout the table.
  • Add candles. Candles add a touch of romance and ambiance to any tablescape. For a French country Thanksgiving table, choose candles in a variety of shapes and sizes. Place candles on the table, in the centerpieces, and on the mantelpiece.
  • Use natural elements. Natural elements, such as pinecones, acorns, and leaves, add a rustic touch to French country decor. For your Thanksgiving table, scatter natural elements around the table or use them to create centerpieces.
  • It’s a good idea to do your thanksgiving table settings a few days or a week before Thanksgiving, so that you can focus on the menu closer to to big day.

Here are a few ideas for French country Thanksgiving centerpieces:

  • A basket of fresh fruit and vegetables. This is a simple and elegant centerpiece that is perfect for a Thanksgiving table. Fill a basket with your favorite fall fruits and vegetables, such as apples, pears, pumpkins, and squash.
  • A wreath of fresh flowers and greenery. This is a beautiful and festive centerpiece that is perfect for a French country Thanksgiving table. Create a wreath using fresh flowers, greenery, and other natural elements, such as pinecones and acorns.
  • A pumpkin filled with flowers. This is a unique and whimsical centerpiece that is perfect for a French country Thanksgiving table. Cut a pumpkin in half and remove the seeds. Fill the pumpkin with fresh flowers and water.

No matter what centerpiece you choose, make sure it is in keeping with the French country style. Avoid using too many artificial flowers or decorations. Instead, focus on using fresh, natural elements.

Once you have chosen your centerpiece, it’s time to set the table. For a French country Thanksgiving table, use mismatched china and silverware. This will add a touch of charm and character to your table setting.

Here are a few additional tips for setting a French country Thanksgiving table:

  • Use placemats. Placemats protect your table from spills and stains. For a French country Thanksgiving table, choose placemats in light colors and natural materials, such as linen or cotton.
  • Fold your napkins creatively. A folded napkin is a simple way to add a touch of elegance to your table setting. For a French country Thanksgiving table, try folding your napkins into a swan or fleur-de-lis shape.
  • Set the table with water glasses and wine glasses. Water glasses and wine glasses are essential for any tablescape. For a French country Thanksgiving table, choose glasses in a simple and elegant style.
  • Add place cards. Place cards add a personal touch to your table setting. For a French country Thanksgiving table, choose place cards in a simple and elegant style. You can write the names of your guests on the place cards by hand or print them out on a computer.

Once you have set the table, it’s time to enjoy your Thanksgiving meal with your family and friends. With a French country Thanksgiving table, you’re sure to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that everyone will love.
