Looking for a neutral Thanksgiving table that represents the season without going too bold? This neutral tablescape uses pears and greenery, along with white roses to create a casual chic take on the holiday.
It’s my first tablescape of the season, and to say I’m excited would be an understatement. I love doing table settings, and this season is the perfect time to indulge!
As soon as fall hits and the holidays are fast approaching, I start planning and bouncing around ideas. This year I wanted to create a Thanksgiving table that is elegant, yet doesn’t feel stuffy. (pun not intended, haha!)
And I think this neutral Thanksgiving table manages to be both. It’s pretty enough that the holiday feels special, but not so complicated that it adds to the stress! It’s an easy but elegant way to celebrate being together.
I hadn’t done a neutral fall table in a few years, so I knew I wanted to explore that again. However, I also really wanted to celebrate the holiday by doing a table that honored the traditional.
So an overall neutral tone, with pears as an accent, creates an autumnal palette but in a softer way.
The centerpiece is a simple glass vase filled with white roses and eucalyptus, with brass candlesticks, more eucalyptus, and Casper white pumpkins down the center of the table.
A pear on each place setting helps to bring in that traditional fall palette.
Some pumpkin and turkey tureens sit on the sideboard adding their charm and practicality!
The gold flatware continues the palette of neutrals punched with gold. I love the warmth they bring to the table!
The placemats are a dark flax linen, and I turned them vertically for a change of pace. I found some similar ones below, but these linen towels are almost exactly the same color and would work well for this! They would also make a great oversize napkin.
Believe it or not, these pears are faux! They look so real! I’ve also used real pears on a tablescape here, but either will work easily here.
Fluted wine glasses bring added elegance and echo the fluting on the dinner plates.
The little place cards I made myself with a gold stamp pad and plain card stock tags! I love the elegant look of the gold juxtaposed with the casual tags.
The flax-colored linen napkins are both elegant and casual, and a staple that I use again and again. They’re definitely worth the investment!
I hope this neutral Thanksgiving tablescape has given you an idea of how easy it is to create a casual but chic table. I’ll be sharing another (very different!) table next week – hope to see you then!
