Thanksgiving is one of the best times to go all out with a wonderfully classic tablescape theme. Whether you want to go with the traditional fall bronze-y gold tones, or more modern pastel fall shades, the Thanksgiving table setting is sure to outshine many of the tablescapes you’ll make throughout the year. But how do you choose which route to take? Bold and bright? Classic and festive? There are so many beautiful ways to set your Thanksgiving table, but thankfully, finding the best Thanksgiving tablescape idea for your Harvest dinner party is made easy with this post of unique Thanksgiving table settings.
Types of Thanksgiving Dinner Tablescapes
Thanksgiving dinner can be served a few different ways, and this plays into the type of table setting you will choose!
The most common way to serve Thanksgiving dinner is with the many dishes served on the table in decorative dishware. With this, you’ll want to keep in mind your size of table and how much decor you plan to add to the table. So when choosing a Thanksgiving dinner table setting for this type of food serving, keep in mind the passing around of the dishes.
Then we have another route, which leaves more room at the table for guests and decor- keeping the food at the separate table! With this, your guests would get up from the table to dish up their plates. This would be a nice idea if your table isn’t big enough to seat all of your guests and fit the food at the table together.
Tips for Choosing a Thanksgiving Dinner Table Setting
Now that you have an idea of the types of thanksgiving dinner tablescapes, let’s dive into some tips for choosing which setting to go with before diving into the huge list of stunning Thanksgiving dinner table settings mentioned later on in this post.
Here are some tips for choosing a Thanksgiving dinner table setting:
- Think about how you are going to serve the food – you don’t want too much decor if you are serving food in decorative dishes around the table!
- Think about the guests – if you have a lot of kids joining, think of a separate table setting for them.
- Think of what you already have on hand – obviously you don’t want to have to buy all new, so consider what you have on hand when thinking of a tablescape to move forward with for the Thanksgiving dinner
With those things in mind, let’s dive into this huge list of Thanksgiving dinner table settings!
