I love a beautiful tablescape, especially during the holiday, but, I hate having a lot of stuff on my table if I’m not using it. Which means my tablescapes are usually simple and last minute, because I’m usually short on time when trying to pull something together.
So, I wanted to share with you how I pulled together my quick, last minute Thanksgiving tablescape that’s really easy to replicate.
So, what do you need for a simple tablescape? Here’s my tablescape essentials:
- tablecloth (I don’t always use them, like you’ll see below)
- one decorative plate for each place setting
- one bowl for each place setting
- pretty silverware
- showstopping wine glasses
- cloth napkins for each place setting
- glasses for water
- pitcher for water
- tray or table runner for middle of table
- cute bowls for nuts or candy
- a gift for each guest to be placed at their setting
Thanksgiving is 3 days away, so I had time to do a bit more to the table. But, because I’m showing you an example of what my last minute tablescape would look like, I didn’t buy anything new except the flowers, nuts, candy, personalized wine stoppers, and napkins (couldn’t find the ones I already have).
So, I used what I had on hand. One thing that I love to have for tablescapes, is a gift for each guest. I bought the personalized letter wine stoppers for each setting and added a chocolate candy.
Then, I used the beautiful wood bowls for pistachios and cashews. They come with marble lids, so I can close the bowl and keep the nuts fresh.
And, here’s the other hosts! Make sure you check out all their last minute Thanksgiving tablescapes.
