A neutral color palette with a pop of red brown
The week of Thanksgiving is here! Are you ready for tomorrow? All the tablescape inspirations I've shared this month were prepared months in advance. Now that the Turkey Day is actually here, I'm realizing I've yet to prepare my own dinner table! So, if you've been super busy with shopping and prepping for the ultimate feast, and now scramming together last minute ideas for a simple dinner table decor, I've got you covered!
For an easy and quick floral centerpiece, make a run to your nearest Michaels if you have a little time and grab a few bud vases in different shapes and sizes! These clear-glass vases are adorable and the mismatch of various shapes and sizes really make it fun! Visit your local floral shop or farmer's market and grab any flower of your choice. Try to stick to similar color palette to achieve a clean and consistent feel. In arranging your vases, try to create a wave of size, without making it too symmetrical. The repetition shouldn't be predictable, and yet it should have a nice and balanced flow to it.
Once you have your vases lined up, gather your dinnerware, silver flatware, glassware, and napkins. Keeping the tablecloth as the statement piece and the only deep color on the table, I went with neutral colors, like transparent, white, black, gray, and silver, for everything else on the table. The warmth of the rust red (brown) and cream tablecloth is toned down by the neutral shades in the color palette. I loved the floral pattern on this cloth, and the fact that it's stain resistant and hundred percent cotton, I was sold! I grabbed this Waterford tablecloth from Homegoods, but they also have it on Amazon. You can choose to use any tablecloth you already have in stock. Just keep an eye out on the colors so everything pulls together and nothing clashes aesthetically. This table decor and the color scheme not only works for a simple and non-traditional Thanksgiving tablescape, but it's also appropriate for any dinner gathering during the fall and winter season.
The smoke gray stem glasses and clear acrylic glasses were paired with white salad bowl, black stoneware dinner plate, and slate gray napkins. For a more casual feel, I went with loosely knotted napkins instead of a formal napkin fold. It's perfect for an effortless and easy table setup. When styled right, the look feels just as classy as any other fall tablescape.
I really hope this inspiration is helpful for your last minute planning. My husband and I will be busy prepping for our family gathering and cooking up a storm! Definitely looking forward to this long weekend and all the sales. Hope you enjoy your holiday weekend, and if you are Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping, hope you score the sales you've been eyeing! Wishing you and your family a very happy thanksgiving!
