Come tour this farmhouse style Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape. You will love the neutral touches and inexpensive decorating tips to make your Thanksgiving table shine!
Today I’m sharing both my Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape for you all and a first over here on the blog. I’m doing a bloghop!
What’s a bloghop? Well, I got together with 18 other bloggers this week, and we are all sharing our Thanksgiving tablescapes. So scroll through, check out my tablescape. Then, check out the other bloggers at the end of this post throughout the week!
How it Came Together
This all started with paper:
I am in love with the idea of running a roll of craft paper down the center of your table instead of using a tablecloth. This is especially practical if you have young children who
can’t be trusted with will tug at a traditional tablecloth.
Basically, I fell in love with this pattern of wrapping paper:
Truly. This one pattern inspired my entire table. Also, I have little kids who destroy things. This tablescape was going to be short lived. I was not willing to spend a whole bunch of time or money on this project.
I used plates, silverware, and glasses that I already had. But I picked up a few things at the dollar store.
These chargers got a quick coat of navy spray paint:
Then these simple dollar store glass bottles served as a centerpiece on my favorite pedestal cake stand:
My Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape
Those little plants are from Ikea, and they are some of the best, most realistic faux plants I’ve seen. The candles are battery operated, because… kids.
The centerpiece came together with 3 dollar store jars and other supplies I already had around the house. Sprigs from my herb garden filled the jars and are scattered around the table.
Do you like my napkins? See how I made them here.

Ooooo I love the plaid paper! It’s gorgeous. The centerpiece is also a favorite of mine. Great job!
You may think your tablescape is simple, but I say it is simply elegant! I love the paper used as runners!! The plaid is just great! I love using spray paint to switch up to look to basic pieces like your chargers, too!
I love the feel of your table setting. The centerpiece turned out lovely. And I agree that the plants from IKEA look real – I have a bunch of them in my home. I bet the herbs smell wonderful on the table, too!!
