Three Thanksgiving Place Setting Ideas

Three Thanksgiving place setting ideas Pinterest image.


When fall finally rolled in, the first thing I decorated in my house was my dining room table. It's such a big space that can totally transform a room from one season to the next! I worked on my centerpiece first (you can see it here) and then finalized my place settings. And y'all know I was doing it all on a dime!

No matter your taste or theme, you can create any look to fit your budget. Shopping stores like Target, Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, Michael's, and World Market will save you money while providing plenty of options. My Thanksgiving decor is a blend of several stores. I like shopping for it in person so I can gauge how all the colors and dimensions of the individual pieces will work together.

Ultimately I went with a glam place setting this year but had so much fun playing with different ideas. These are the three themes I came up with this year: rustic plaid, glam metallic, and traditional farmhouse.
