I hope that all of my US readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were happy to celebrate with family and even happier that my college girl was able to come home for the week! Normally I always forget to take photos on Thanksgiving (I get all caught up in the prep and forget) but this year I was determined to stop and take some pictures. I thought I’d share with you some Thanksgiving Table Ideas by showing you what I came up with this year. This post contains affiliate links.
The week before Thanksgiving I decided to repaint 2 pieces of my dining room furniture (not the best idea I’ve ever had) so it seemed like I was scrambling at the last minute to throw the house together (because I was). However, I’m so happy with how the furniture turned out I’ll be sure to share it with you soon.
I thought today I’d share with you 4 Thanksgiving Table Decorating ideas, inspired by our families Thanksgiving celebrations.
Add an “I’m Thankful For” prompt to each place setting. It’s a great conversation starter, and a fun way to remind everyone what the Holiday is all about.

We had a smaller group than normal this year, with many family members out of town. We missed them dearly but the upside to having a smaller group is that we all fit at the same table this year.

Use what you already have on hand to decorate the table. It’s always fun to go and buy new accessories for the table, but don’t forget about the stuff you already have. There’s a reason you bought it in the first place (because you loved it)
I pulled out a little bit of my collection of Delft and love how it complimented the wood tones and gray.
Save space on your table by serving dinner Buffet Style. It’s hard to decorate a table AND leave room for food at the same time. Instead, our family likes to set up a big buffet on a large table. Then everyone can help themselves to as much food as they would like. It also gives you more “elbow” room at the table.
Everyone in my family is an amazing cook and we were treated to a delicious meal! We had a great Southern Thanksgiving including, cast iron rolls, corn pudding, pecan and chestnut stuffing, honey baked ham, a smoked turkey, mac n cheese, green beans, pecan pie and of course sweet potatoes!
This one loves her mashed potatoes as I’m sure you can tell!
I’m curious, what’s ALWAYS on your Thanksgiving menu?
