I always have some table decor essentials that I love, and then I add a few beautiful accents that set each table apart from the others. So, let’s see how I created my latest table setting.

How to Create a Thanksgiving Table Setting Made Easy!

I broke down my styling into seven easy steps on how to create a Thanksgiving table.

1. Use Natural Wheat

I recently visited the Alameda Antique Fair and found the shop, The Warped Table. They carry gorgeous items, and I always seem to purchase things from them. But since you can’t buy it from them, I’m placing an Amazon link: dried wheat

Well, this time, I instantly fell in love with these gorgeous bundles of wheat. Well, if you notice this wheat curves, unlike the regular wheat that shoots straight up. The farmer who harvested it apologized that this year’s crop drooped downward. I love that it cascades so beautifully in the vase.

2. Wild Pampas Grass Adds an Organic Element

Pampas grass is abundant here in Northern California. I spy a ton of it alongside the highways, but unfortunately, I can’t stop to pick them. Well, this weekend while we were at the Alameda Antique Fair, I snagged a few branches from the bushes right in the parking lot. While I pruned some of the bushes, my brother snapped some photos of the shipyard nearby.

Once I was home, I placed some grass up in my chandelier and on my table. I is such a beautiful natural element and the best part is that it is free! But I want to share a word of caution. Make sure not to place the pampas grass anywhere near a flame, and it is highly flammable.

3. White Pumpkins Scream Thanksgiving

White pumpkins are a must when creating this Thanksgiving table setting made easy. I bought these in early September and I love that they last such a long time. I recently went out after Halloween to buy more, and the store cleared out their inventory. So, next year I’ll buy all that I need early in the season.

4. Candles

Gold, silver, and white are the colors that I unearthed from my dining room buffet. I decided to have fun with this little lantern and I combined the silver and gold as an element of surprise. Have fun and mix and match finishes.

5. Use White Plates With a Touch of Gold

I bought these pretty French plates from our local store Elsie Green. Everything from the store is shipped directly from France in a big cargo container. I bought the top scalloped plate from their sale section and thank goodness I didn’t spend too much money. As you can see, I’m all about saving money these days so, this amber glass I found at Goodwill.

When working on your Thanksgiving Table, be creative, and shop your home and thrift shops!

6. A White Linen Table Cloth is Perfect For a Thanksgiving Table

I have about three white table cloths since I adore how white is the perfect backdrop for any table decor. Alas, I always like a light and bright table. I think living in Seattle left an impression on my need for sunshine and light.

7. Add Fall Fruit

This is a no brainer when styling your Thanksgiving Table. Add fruit such as pears, persimmons, grapes, pomegranates, and apples. A couple of years ago, my gardener gave me a considerable amount of persimmons from his tree, and I loved how they combined with my pink pumpkins.
