With Halloween just a few days away, I know the minute it passes, our minds turn to the next holiday coming! I have a hard time not heading straight to the christmas decor though! It could be because I’m usually decorating for fall in August, so in all fairness I’ve already been soaking fall in for the last three months. And I can’t stand only having 4 short weeks of Christmas. So I start to subtly incorporate more winter themed decor in our house, without it feeling full blown christmas-y. I’ve shared before that because we don’t host thanksgiving, I don’t feel the need to hold onto fall decor until then, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t like creating tablescapes for one of my favorite holidays. Thankfully my mom lets me decorate at her house too, which is where we go for Thanksgiving. Today I’m going to share with you 3 neutral themed thanksgiving tablescapes, I created last year, for the non-orange lovers, or maybe those wanting to switch things up this year.
First up I love this simple White Pumpkin and Eucalyptus centerpiece. We don’t always have go all out to create a beautiful centerpiece. Focusing on simple elements in neutral colors, adds just the right touch with just a couple pieces.
The next two are a bit more elaborate, however one is a bit more rustic, one a bit more elegant, both create an enticing table to sit down at! Let’s start with the more rustic option first. I started by layering burlap coffee sacks over a white tablecloth.
Creating depth by adding different heights is a great way to make your tablescape come to life. Like you see above, I used a wreath around the base of a cake stand to add height and texture!
I used cinderella pumpkins and squash from the farmers market to be the main focal point. I also wrapped cabbage with burlap scraps to hide their ugly black plastic containers. I stuck with the same three colors when creating this tablescape for a rustic table full of the seasons produce.
For the final table, I still worked off the same color scheme as above, however I wanted it to feel more elegant, so instead of just a few touches of mercury glass like before, mercury glass was the main theme below. d
I still added layers with a table runner, and then folding the coffee sacks into thirds on top, instead of laying over the entire table like you saw in the rustic tablescape. I used different sized mercury glass hurricanes, votives, and candlesticks for an all over shimmer. You can see a step by step tutorial for I created this table HERE.
I hope you feel inspired for Thanksgiving, if you are looking for a non-orange option, or just simply want to change things up. Don’t forget this Monday kicks off this years Thanksgiving Tablescape Tour, and I can’t wait to see all the beautiful tables that will be shared.
