Bountiful Harvest Thanksgiving Table Setting

This Thanksgiving table setting features turkey plates along with flowers in rich fall colors to create a table that is both simple and beautiful!

Thanksgiving table settings for me are always special. I know a pretty table doesn’t make or break anyone’s Thanksgiving, but it is always nice to know that someone took some time to make something beautiful for you.

Whether that’s the meal, the table, or both, it shows the people you love that you care. My making a table extra special is just another way of showing my family how much they mean to me.

I want my Thanksgiving table setting to reflect the holiday, but also to marry my casual chic style. What I mean by that is that while I want it to look beautiful, I don’t want it to be so difficult that it’s overwhelming.

This year my Thanksgiving table setting focuses on the bounty of the season, using a simple mix of florals in rich colors, along with some fall fruits and vegetables….

And turkey plates! Before I was blogging, I was definitely doing tablescapes. But I tended to do something similar each year rather than mixing it up as I do now. Most of my pre-blogging Thanksgiving table settings involved one or the other of my vintage turkey plates.

And then the last few years of blogging (including last week’s fall tablescape), most of my tables have been on the neutral side.

But I really missed my turkey plates, so I decided to do a decidedly more traditional Thanksgiving table setting this time. And I’m loving the warm colors so much! They really fit with what I’ve done with my other fall decor this year, and I’m enjoying the rich autumnal colors.

These particular turkey plates were a lucky find at Home Goods. I loved the rich colors – and his blue head! I couldn’t resist 😉

However, they are hard to find so I’ve linked lots of cute options that give the same look!

The flowers I used for the centerpiece are called antique hydrangeas, and they look like those lovely colors that hydrangeas turn when they are fading – except these aren’t dried! As far as I know, these are only available in the fall and I planned on using them as soon as I knew I’d be doing this table.

There is just nothing like their fading purples, burgundies and greens. They just say “fall” to me!

White pumpkins, artichokes, apples, and pomegranates all make an appearance on the table, along with seeded eucalyptus.

I also used my absolute favorite fall item – these mercury copper votives that appeared on my fall mantel last month. They’re gorgeous and so versatile!

A fun little touch is the napkin rings that say “Thankful.” They’re so cute! I love to add that touch of gratefulness as a nod to what this holiday means to all of us.
