4 Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

thanksgiving table settingThere are so many things to be thankful for in life. Thankfully, we have come up with a few ways you can make your Grand Prairie apartment holiday-ready as you prepare to host friends, family members, and random dinners with your significant other. These fall-inspired centerpieces and autumn accessories will put your right in the mood for the season’s upcoming festivities.

1. Antique Box & Bouquet

You don’t have to make room between turkey and stuffing for this fall undertaking. Your chic box can decorate your table during dinner or when nobody’s around. Fill it with colorful fall flora, and let your table speak for itself when guests arrive.

2. Whimsical White

Autumn produce provides an awesome backdrop for get-togethers, but nobody said you have to stick to the natural color scheme. Paint a few mini pumpkins or gourds with an all-white facade, and lay the foundation for a whole new autumn. White linen tablecloths, wood paddles, bright white fall produce, and colorful berries provide the perfect combination of colorful-yet-refined.

3. Pumpkin Candlesticks

Two things you need to know: they’re stunning and they’re super easy. Once you’ve figured that out, the rest just falls into place. All you have to do is find a few pumpkins or gourds that sit well on their foundations and pop off their tops. Place votive candles on top, and shield them with glass hurricanes to protect the flames.

4. Thankful Tree (Turkey Style)

Armed with a bit of cheap plywood and some seen-better-days forks, you can turn the center of your table into a spot where gratitude and graciousness come together under the guise of a turkey’s feathers. Share photos, pass on a kind compliment, or warm somebody’s day with a few words of encouragement with this masterful mid-table design.

Nothing says Thanksgiving like a dinner table where friends and family members can feast throughout the day. If you’re looking for an apartment home that allows you to entertain to your heart’s content, check out the floor plans at our Derby Park Apartments!
