Thanksgiving is only a few days away, have you started planning? Are you going to be hosting at your home? This year we’re going to my in-laws for the Thanksgiving feast, but I will be setting the table. I love the fall season and each year I look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving around the table with my family. This year’s decorations will be eclectic and whimsical using my vintage collection of tableware. During the past week I’ve been researching and found some vintage inspired Thanksgiving decoration ideas.
Remember, when assembling anything that’s vintage inspired, don’t be fussy or a perfectionist. In order to pull a tablescape or vintage room together you need to allow your personality and charm to come through. Pick your favorite color, pattern, and get creative.
Here are some ideas, look through your home and find objects that can be recycled and re-purposed. Remember the turkey dishes you picked up at the flea market in July? It’s time to take them out. Find coordinating glasses, stemware, tablecloth, and arrange a unique eclectic place setting that reflects your style and shows off your collections. Remember Vintage inspired Thanksgiving decoration means nothing has to match.
Don’t forget to bring the bounty of fall indoor, seasonal flowers, branches with fall colors, all can be arranged to help celebrate the season. Candles are always necessary and cast a beautiful light, select candle sticks that are all the same color like silver or crystal, or maybe even colored glass.
Try to assemble all the decorative elements in groups of three or odd numbers. Gold chargers, beautiful napkins and candles are great ideas for adding sparkle and a festive vibe to the vintage inspired table.
Remember to keep things simple and seasonal, pine cones, and ornaments, make beautiful arrangements.
Twig charger and a collection of mismatched plates are charming and certainly have the vintage idea.
Think out side the box, put away the idea of a traditional table cloth and find new ways to dress the table.
I have a collection of amber glass, the only thing they have in common is the amber color, I think I’ll use them at the desert table.
Make a display of serving pieces. Display items that have one thing in common, like color, style or manufacturer.
However you dress your table on Thanksgiving; we wish you a wonderful holiday season.
