We are hosting my side of the family for Thanksgiving at our house this year! I knew I wanted to create a Thanksgiving tablescape that was neutral, but still feeling cozy! Because it always feels so good to be comfortable and at ease with family on Thanksgiving after a scrumptious meal!
I played around with some different ideas, but ultimately, using some type of plaid/flannel in the decor was going to be the main factor in creating the cozy factor I was envisioning. Ok, so finding a flannel table runner that fit the subtle style I was going for was not easy…I ended up using this lovely, soft scarf from Target that was on sale! It was even the perfect length for my table – 6 feet! Also, I figured it would look really cute on my pup too haha (for after Thanksgiving)!
In addition to the scarf table runner, I used some mini white pumpkins from a local farm, fresh hydrangeas, and some other things that I already had in my decor stash. On my dog walks this fall, I kept an eye out for some natural elements that I might be able to use for the tablescape. I found pine cones, berries, and a shrub that looked like wheat, not really sure what it was, but it looked great in our vintage galvanized pitcher!
The photo below shows what I initially came up with for the tablescape. I wasn’t really loving it as it didn’t quite flow right.
After some rearranging, I just kept the pieces I liked the best and I ended up incorporating a framed, “give thanks” print that I created using my calligraphy. I love the final outcome, cozy and simple!
