Looking for easy Thanksgiving table setting ideas? This beautiful table in shades of white and gold is simple and elegant!
It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve shared a table setting with you – especially a Thanksgiving table! I’m super excited to be doing a tablescape again, and this one is especially easy (my favorite!) 😉
To me, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to put in some effort and create a beautiful table. After all, it’s a holiday solely about the meal! I truly believe that a pretty table makes the holiday that much more enjoyable. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but it’s also a lovely way to show you care.
And I have to say, this table came together so easily!

The brass lanterns were something I’ve had for awhile and when I spied them in the cabinet, I knew they’d be the perfect way to add elegance to the table while also keeping it uncomplicated.
The centerpiece features two different sizes of brass lanterns, along with brass candleholders and lots (and lots!) of eucalyptus over a white linen runner. I also added a few large pillar candles for even more ambiance.
For me, the thing that made this even simpler than other tables I’ve done was the lack of a floral centerpiece. And though I love flowers, by not using them I not only saved money, but it also made it almost effortless to throw together, too! This also makes it easier to set your table a day or two ahead (something I strongly recommend if you’re hosting!)
If you do want to add flowers, I would use only two lanterns and do a bouquet of some type of white flower in the center.
The place cards are attached to my favorite flax linen napkins with jute string. The card and the string bring a level of casualness to an otherwise elegant setting which I love. A sprig of eucalyptus is tucked in for added color.
I used these little leaf shaped appetizer plates as an accent piece and added a mini white pumpkin to each one as a nod to the season.
I layered a white salad plate over white dinner plates and finished with vintage-style silver flatware. It is Thanksgiving after all! And using silverplate or real silver elevates the table to something that feels extra special.
As for the place cards, I made them from card stock tags and a stamp. I love adding a personal touch to a table setting, and a handmade place card really does that. If you want to be more traditional you could add names, but this year I opted to add a simple “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment stamped in gold.
