It’s Natural: Terrific Thanksgiving Table Décor from Outdoors

Sometimes, you get so caught up in preparing the Thanksgiving feast that you forget about “dressing” your table accordingly! But just as you plan your own outfit with care, let your décor shine, too. What’s great about these ideas is that they’re all natural — some, you can find right outside the door. Pumpkins, of course, are a #1 choice for fall tables; paint them white and string branches or berries among them, set them on dried pressed leaves, or pair them with all-white dishes and clear crystal for a stunning look. A simple bowl of colorful gourds gives your house a warm accent; or fill that bowl with vegetables (the last tomatoes from the garden, purple cabbages) or fruit (apples, pomegranates, or grapes) and you’ve got instant table appeal.

Don’t forget candlelight: it makes any table special. Scatter amber-toned vigil lights among bowls of walnuts, pecans, or almonds, and you’ve got both color and texture — plus great appetizers! Want some green? Make tiny rosemary wreaths trimmed with slips of paper with guests’ names on for unique “place cards.” Got pinecones? They’re a great addition to a table in brown and white; group pumpkins, cones, or other fall produce in a small stack in an antique bird cage for a conversation-starter. And remember, less can be more: a wood cutting board with a simple candle, two or three small pumpkins, a sprig or two of wheat or a bunch of grapes…magic. So go ahead — get inspired here, then enjoy the compliments on your Thanksgiving table!
