Whether you're looking for a fun kraft paper tablecloth, a printable banner, or an inexpensive arrangement, we've got you covered.
Leaf Place Card and Acorn Napkin Ring
Nature is the theme of this classically fall hued table. Hot glue acorns to lengths of brown waxed twine and use to tie up rolled napkins. Apply gold leaf to a portion of a preserved maple leaf and use a gold paint pen to mark with guest's initials.
Button Napkin Ring
This neutral toned place setting is just cute as a button! To make either buy would buttons or drill small holes into small wood rounds. Thread holes with white twine and tie around napkins.
Beautiful tones of orange and gold make for an elegant Thanksgiving table. And don't forget to give that napkin extra love by forming then into a bow shapes and slipping a gold napkin ring over the center.
Vintage Turkey Cloches
A jadeite cake stand, glass cloche, and turkey figurine are all you need to make this quick, easy Thanksgiving decoration idea come to life. Of course, the idea can be adapted for whatever fall-themed figurines you happen to collect.
Greet guests with this charming alternative to a fall wreath. Simply apply a layer of chalkboard paint to the inside of an old tray, then add autumn branches and bittersweet berries for a seasonal finish.
Kraft Paper Tablecloth
A roll of kraft paper makes a fun tablecloth for the kids' table—make sure to set out terra-cotta pots filled with crayons (and pears, for decoration).
DIY Pumpkin Vase
Trade your glass vase for a faux pumpkin to take your Thanksgiving decor to the next level.
Liza Lubell of Brooklyn's Peartree Flowers says, "Ripe fruit is as lush as any flower." Here, she uses opulent pomegranates for these autumnal centerpieces. Cut each branch to a height that allows its heavy fruits to rest on the rim of your vase. Then fill in with inexpensive foliage, such as the purple shiso leaves here. You can also try apples or persimmons.
White Pillar Candles
Arrange a large group of scentless white pillar candles in various heights on a large wooden tray in the center of your dining table. Add wheat stalks, fresh fruit, and gourds for an extra festive display.
