Dried Floral Centerpiece
Pampas grass is popular and beautiful any time of year, but it looks especially perfect on a fall table. This gorgeous grass wreath would look great at the center of the table with a hurricane candle in the middle. Or make several small dried floral bouquets using vases or mason jars you already have. Keep it simple and let the dried foliage do all the work.
Candles and Linens
Simple decor items like votive candle holders and warm-toned linens are all you need to show off gorgeous Thanksgiving food. Line candles down the center of your table, interspersing some mini pumpkins, apples, or pinecones. These basic linens in a warm hue will give your table fall vibes without going overboard.
Simple Place Settings
Set a thoughtful but minimalist table with basic white plates, neutral linens, and a handmade name card atop gold pumpkins to welcome guests in a personalized way. A roll of kraft paper would also be an inexpensive way to decorate your table and another way to personalize your table. Write guest’s names on the paper with marker and later during mealtime, your paper table runner could serve as dinner conversation. Guests could write down what they’re grateful for or scribe a favorite quote.
Cake pedestals are a beautiful way to show off decor and food. Grab one or more from your pantry, buy new,or thrift some, and place on the table to hold pumpkins, candles, and food. Put your pies out on display as decoration or use one to hold a charcuterie array.
