The center of Thanksgiving is the dining table, and it’s a wonderful time to make the setting feel really special. It can also be a really stressful and overwhelming time if you’re the one doing the cooking and decorating! And lets be real– everyone is more worried about the food than the place settings (and possibly the football game on TV, depending on who’s playing!).
Here is a round up of simple, easy place settings that look great without all the fuss!
If you love the idea of a centerpiece, this simple collection of pumpkins, candles, and greenery is a really easy look to recreate without a lot of effort. I also love the idea of keeping the centerpiece low so you can actually see and talk to your family.
An even easier look is this greenery, candle, and apple display. It still feels really fall but I love how simple and rustic it is.
For an easy yet festive way to arrange silverware, I love this pretty velvet tie. The burnt orange color is perfect for Thanksgiving!
The velvet tie could also be really pretty to tie up napkins, or you could do cute little personalized place settings like these mini-wreaths. This would take a little more time, but could be done a day or two before Thanksgiving to save time.
If your really pressed for time, you could always rip up pieces of paper and elegantly write your guests names on them! (That was sort of a joke..).
Sometimes a more simple look can be just as impactful with the right details.. and the right food!
