This is the dining room where I’ve sat for a zillion Thanksgivings.
The Thanksgiving where I rolled my eyes and wore my Flock of Seagulls bangs.
The Thanksgiving where I held hands with my almost-husband under the table.
The Thanksgiving where I watched my father and his twinkling eyes carve the turkey.
The Thanksgiving where my oldest child who is now in college try sweet potatoes for the first time.
So many heart moments.
So many laughs.
So many thankfuls.
I’m hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year in this same room.
And I want it to be extra cute.
Let’s get inspired together with these clever ideas for the cutest Thanksgiving table setting on the planet.
There are so many people coming for dinner that I’m creating an adults table that sits 12 and a children’s table that sits 10. I think I’m going to use elements of this centerpiece for the table and then I’m going to use this setting that I found on Southern Living as my inspiration.
It has layers and layers of mismatched blue and white dishes which may or may not be my specialty from all my yard sale shopping.
Westleigh is also calligraphying tags to be tied onto the silverware for all the place settings for the family.
Here’s my entire Pinterest board of Thanksgiving table ideas if you want to follow along.
I’m also thinking about adding in a few of these ideas from my other Thanksgiving tables.
Like the year I tied fresh florals to each place setting (wouldn’t that be so cute with Westleigh’s calligraphy tag).
And created these wood leaf chargers.
And added magnolia leaves to the centerpiece.
Or maybe putting one of these pumpkins on each person’s bread plate.
Or in a little mini-flower pot with a blue and white napkin tucked into it?
I wonder if I could add a bread leaf to it?
I also found this cute idea from one of my past Thanksgivings to put the silverware under leaves.
And this cute wood slice tag will work perfectly for the children’s table.
I think Westleigh can calligraphy them and we can add a holder to the top, tie on a ribbon and they can take it home as an ornament.
And maybe I’ll put a blue and white ribbon between the two mismatched blue and white plates.
I used a grapevine wreath as a charger here, but what about using a gold leaf wreath or a white berry wreath as a charger instead.
(total aside: I’m not using this idea—but isn’t the idea of a pinecone as a placeholder perfect, too?)
There are too many ideas and too little Thanksgiving table.
I can’t decide.
I want to do it all.
It’s like I have Thanksgiving table ADD.
Good thing because I’m going to be hosting Thanksgiving dinner here for years and years.
And years to come. 🙂
PS I can’t help it.
I had to share this idea for a simple, stamped spoon napkin ring.
I’ll stop now.
