thanksgiving tabletops

It’s snowy here in Pittsburgh, and with Thanksgiving just two days away, I’m in a holiday season groove. That said, I have admittedly never been a huge turkey day fan. I don’t eat the turkey, and watching football has never been my thing. But I do love the fact that it brings family and friends together to celebrate gratitude, and I find that so much of the spirit of the holiday comes from sitting down at a table and sharing a meal together.

Which leads to the one part of Thanksgiving I can REALLY get into: the table landscapes. I’ve been drooling over some of the gorgeous tabletop displays I’ve seen lately and wanted to share what I feel are the prettiest and most organic themes when decorating your turkey day table:

1. Mixed Metals

Copper is totally having a moment right now, but I love the idea of mixing multiple metals and finishes in your dishes, flatware, and decor in order to bring some complexity and texture to the table.

2. Darker palette

The deep, rich tones embody the feel of the season, but they’re totally unexpected when compared to the usual reds, oranges, and browns.

3. Earthy, natural elements

I love bringing color to the table by using natural, organic elements such as greenery, florals, and pumpkins. Don’t be afraid to mix in unexpected colors, such as navy and eggplant.

4. Tartan

Last but not least, I love incorporating the visual texture of tartan. The fabric is not just reserved for Christmas decor — it packs a mighty punch when used on your Thanksgiving tablescape as well.

And that’s it, friends! I hope each and every one of you enjoys a beautiful holiday with the ones you love.
