Amazing Thanksgiving Dining Table Settings You’ll Love

A lot of work goes into creating the Thanksgiving feast. One of the most satisfying parts of the day is sitting down to a dining table that reflects the planning and care required to produce such a rare and elaborate meal. Whether your home is a classic traditional, transitional, full of rustic décor, or well-suited to a modern dining table, a carefully constructed tablescape offers an impressive finishing touch.


Rustic dining room tables reflect the textures and colors of autumn found in nature. Even if you don’t live in an area of the world that experiences a fall season that includes pumpkins growing in the field, corn withering on the stalk, and rapidly cooling temperatures, creating a rustic dining table-scape is as easy as collecting a few well-worn items and grouping them together to create interest and to delight your guests.

If Indian corn and fresh from the field gourds are hard to find, mimic the fall look at your rustic dining room table with braided raffia. A touch of mercury glass offers some contrasting bling while maintaining the weathered and worn feel of rustic dining table décor.

Classic Traditional

Traditional dining room tables don’t have to be intimidating. It’s quite possible to set out an impressive spread of fine china while adding some trendy touches like gold-covered small pumpkins and bright white linens without compromising the high-end feel of the occasion.

Black and white accessories, like the candlesticks pictured here, are always at home in a formal setting. Add some nature-inspired touches of greenery for the ideal finishing touch.

Transitional, Farmhouse & Industrial Chic

Farmhouse dining room tables are on-trend right now and dressing up for a big event like Thanksgiving is pure pleasure. Lean toward lighter shades of green and orange and finish with brass and white accents for an understated look. A bare table may offer the best backdrop, but if that isn’t a preferable option, try a natural linen tablecloth or woven place mats in soft colors.

The transitional style blends modern with traditional, blurring the lines of strictly categorized ideas about decor. Simple shapes, metallic accents, and monochromatic color schemes pull the look together perfectly. Choose one bright or bold focus color and keep everything else white or black for maximum effect.

Modern dining room tables fit in with any style of décor. Their simplicity is elegant and easy to put together. Plain white or eggshell china, clear glasses, and flatware with clean lines are essential. Keep the table décor simple and spare. Candles are important for ambient light and visual interest. Bare candles in natural colors resting on a polished wood plank are a beautiful and understated option.

One may not often think of vintage table accessories as modern, but it’s quite possible to display or even use a favorite collection of things from days gone by in a modern dining table arrangement. Vintage flatware or glassware is at home in contemporary surroundings and the contrast creates a wonderful focal point at the table.
