Creative Ideas for Fall or Thanksgiving Table Settings and Home Decor
1. Create a neutral color scheme
A neutral color scheme fits in well with most home decor styles, whether formal or casual. A neutral palate also helps achieve a very natural look, if that is what you are trying to achieve.
Using a neutral palate provides such a soft and inviting look.
This light and neutral centerpiece add a beautiful touch of elegance to the table setting.
2. Incorporate fruit, vegetables or herbs into your decor
There are so many fruits and vegetables that coordinate so nicely with fall decor. Additionally, this can be an inexpensive way to achieve drama without breaking the bank. They also add nice texture and can be reused….bonus!
This simple centerpiece is loaded with vegetables and is so happy!

The natural fruit and vegetable elements here are so simple and bright providing dramatic texture.
I love the brightness these pomegranates provide.
3. Use traditional Thanksgiving elements like pumpkins and turkeys
I am sure this seems obvious, so here I am sharing some of my favorite table settings that include pumpkins and/or turkeys.
The browns and rusts work together so well here.
The abundance and varieties of pumpkins really make this look. Be sure to notice the opened books being used as a base for the place settings. So creative!
These pumpkins really stand out in this elegant and colorful table setting.
The turkeys here add so much fall texture and color and the tones for the color palette of the place settings. This is one of my table settings from last year…it was actually the “kids table”.
The brown velvet pumpkins definitely steal the show for this table setting of mine…as do the green metal pumpkin party favors.
This turkey-themed table setting is just so delightful and happy! Great for a brunch or luncheon.
I think this has to be my all-time favorite table setting decorated with pumpkins. I am so in love!! It is so romantic and fresh. And, an unexpected color palette. Isn’t this so divine?!
4. Utilize natural elements that could be found naturally outdoors
These natural elements could include pine cones, antlers, cinnamon sticks, magnolia leaves, moss, feathers, leaves with changing colors or tree branches.
I love the use of the feathers here! So simple and elegant.
Adding antlers to this centerpiece really takes it up a notch.
The large pine cones and feathers finish off the look of the vignette so nicely!
My planter filled with preserved moss provided the natural greenery for this centerpiece and offered really nice contrast and softness.
For this fall centerpiece for my island, I cut this foliage off of one of my bushes in my yard right as the colors where changing. It added great texture and warmth in my white kitchen.
5. Use fall throws or blankets as a base for your table setting
The blankets and throws used here in the next several table settings make you just want wrap yourself in them.
Since I do not know where these bloggers acquired their blankets/throws for these table settings, I shopped some for you and these are my favorites for creating a similar look.
