Thanksgiving is just days away and after spending the holidays separated from family last year, there is so much anticipation to enjoying time together this year. Even though B and I will be traveling to see family this Thanksgiving, I wanted to give our table an update for my favorite holiday with this elegant vintage Thanksgiving Tablescape.
The entire design started with this turkey. I spotted this guy on a trip to Hobby Lobby but passed on him at the time. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I scored him during a sale online. He’s a pretty good size even for our massive table.
I’d already been planning on using this vintage china. The set was a summer purchase from a public auction at one of our neighbor’s houses. B and I paid just $17 for the entire set! It sort of started a new obsession with vintage dinnerware ever since!
I reused my gold charger plates from my fall table. These were a dollar store find and even though they were inexpensive, they feel more elevated when you mix them with finer things.
While I don’t typically use tablecloths, this stunning turkey tablecloth from Williams Sonoma stole my heart. The design is beautiful and the color palette is absolute perfection with touches of gray and blue in addition to the browns. While a bit of a splurge, this addition seems to tie everything together.
The glasses are the same as my fall table. A set that I scored at the same auction above in a box lot. I didn’t think I’d keep them but the leaf pattern on them is proving to be a great detail for fall.
The pinecones were collected from around our beach house so no cost there and they add a rustic layer to the table. I used them at each place setting thinking they’d be great anchors for a name card. You’ll also notice the woven pumpkins from a recent thrift store trip.
I didn’t go overboard this time around. If we’d be hosting Thanksgiving dinner here, we’d want to leave room for serving our turkey and side dishes so I kept this in mind as I was setting the table.
This is a super easy look that layered together items that wouldn’t normally go together but that work perfectly in this setting. When creating your own tablescapes any time of year, don’t be afraid to mix and match dishes and decor items that blend old and new. A collected, layered table can be a great way to showcase your unique style to create a one-of-a-kind look.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little glimpse into my Thanksgiving dining room. Do you mix and match pieces to create your tablescape? I’d love to hear about how you create your table settings!
