A traditional Thanksgiving table setting might start with a tablecloth, a table runner, and cloth napkins finished with napkin rings. It may include a centerpiece of flowers, pumpkins, autumn leaves and/or fruit, votive or taper candles, and formal china, silverware, place cards, and wine and water glasses. A traditional Thanksgiving table setting is often layered with seasonal decor objects, serving dishes, and platters. The color palette of a traditional Thanksgiving table setting often includes fall colors such as rust, crimson, or mustard, and may include warm-toned metal accents such as copper goblets, bronze candlesticks, or gold-rimmed glasses.

How can you decorate a Thanksgiving table setting without spending a lot?

For affordable Thanksgiving décor, incorporate neutral elements that you already have on hand, like simple white plates, silverware, and glassware, then embellish the table with natural elements like seasonal fruits, leaves, or branches. You can make a simple centerpiece with foraged branches run down the middle of the table, and decorated with pumpkins, pine cones, apples, pears, or pomegranates. Add some tea lights in recycled glass votives or pinch your LED pillar candles from the living room. Make some DIY place cards by writing names on foraged fall leaves. Use your imagination and lead with your heart and your table will look warm and inviting without spending a lot.
