11 Easy & Cozy Thanksgiving Table Ideas

Friends. Can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK? It came out of nowhere! I love this time of year. Since moving from Iowa to Arizona, I’ve learned that the seasons are what you make of them. Even though we don’t really get the true fall season here, the weather has finally cooled and there’s fall decor everywhere!

With Thanksgiving next week, I wanted to share some cozy, beautiful, and fun Thanksgiving table ideas! Growing up, I loved helping set the Thanksgiving table. I remember being tasked with folding the napkins in a fun design and arranging all the plates and silverware. We’re HUGE foodies in my family, so the table is a magical place. Table = FOOD!

Anyway, from pretty plates to free printables, take a scroll through these Thanksgiving table ideas and have a beautiful, family-filled Thanksgiving!

Everyone has a roll, right?! I love the idea of using little paper loaf pans as part of the decor. Hobby Lobby always has cute bakeware!

Even if you don’t have a beautiful, natural wood table like this, Rosemary would be beautiful on any tabletop! Plus, it’s not too bulky so it would be easy to find space for all your food. It looks so effortless!

Thanksgiving Table Ideas - plaid blanket decor

I’ve never thought of using a blanket as part of a tablescape, but it works! A blanket like this can be used for either Thanksgiving or Christmas and creates a super cozy look. Would it be weird to sleep on the table? …nevermind. 😂

Copper & Green Tablescape via Bless’er House

LOVE this tablescape! Not only did she spray paint those chargers, (which she found at the dollar store!) but she also used old white shutters on her table for decor. So beautiful!

Thanksgiving Table Ideas - gold leaf name placard

Gold Leaf Name Card via Homesteading

I’m all about easy DIYs! Fake leaves + Gold spray paint + Sharpie = Beautiful name placards.

Thanksgiving Table Ideas - bright napkins

For a splash of color on your table, try using bright colored napkins (or in this case, felt!) to wrap silverware. Finishing it off with the straw keeps it from looking tacky.
