As the hot temperatures begin to simmer and the sweaters start to come out, it’s that time – fall is finally here!

Whether the family is coming to you or it is time for someone else to host, we can give you some essential tips to make a beautiful, warm, and trendy fall table that everyone will envy. We’re taking a look at some of our favorite tablescapes from past events to get you prepared to be the hostess for the mostess on Thanksgiving day.
DIY Thanksgiving Tablescapes
Birds of a Feather
This one is low effort, big impact. Place a feather and seed packet over each setting and add a pop of floral with your grandmother’s vintage napkins. Bonus points: finish it off with a cheesecloth runner.
Bring the bounty indoors. Use a batch of mini pumpkins to create an effortless cascade. Finish off with some fresh eucalyptus that you pick up from the grocery store.
While you are out picking up those last minute ingredients, grab some extra artichokes, basil, carrots, red potato, and thyme. Deck out your table with them Thursday and use them in a recipe later.
Pumpkin + Succulent
Carve out the center of a white mini pumpkin and use to pot a small succulent. These double as a personable detail and take-home favor!
Use fresh-cut plums (or your other favorite fruit) and black tapers to create a simple, yet moody centerpiece.
Happy planning! We wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving.
