5 Ways to Create a Thanksgiving Tablescape Using Natural Elements
Fall decorating for me is all about bringing the outside in. I always love creating Thanksgiving tablescapes using natural elements such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh flowers and herbs from the garden. And the best part? It can be an inexpensive way to dress up your table.

Garland, Pumpkins and Seasonal Fruit
I added a faux bay leaf garland to the centerpiece, with little mandarin oranges, pinecones and white pumpkins. You could use any seasonal fruits with some garland. I love using pomegranates and apples as well.
I just recently bought these fall plates and fabric napkins from Homegoods. You can always find copper finishes when I create my Thanksgiving tablescape with these copper napkin rings, a fun find at a local flea market, and the copper mules. The Pottery barn charger finishes off the fabulous fall vibe.
I tend to use more white pumpkins than orange, but either color would fit here perfectly. Pinecones look beautiful here, and can usually be found throughout your yard. Candlelight is always a must.

Dough Bowl Filled with Seasonal Flowers and Fruits
I used the same place settings here that I used in the last tablescape, but changed out the centerpiece. The garland was replaced by a dough bowl. To brighten up this table a bit, I added bright green granny smith apples and fresh cut hydrangea blooms.
I left the pinecones and white pumpkins on the table.

Pumpkins, Mums and More Pumpkins
This was my favorite Thanksgiving tablescape to create for the season. I’ve always wanted to add a pile of pumpkins down the center of the table!
I will admit I went a little crazy with the pumpkins this year. And I will take a few of those pumpkins off the table before eating. I actually started a cute little pumpkin patch this fall, and the white and green pumpkins you see here are from my garden.
The warm color of the mums I picked out the for the fall tablescape played off of the white pumpkins perfectly.
Here’s a fun little fall display with a white mini pumpkin and some moss in a terra cotta pot. The white plates and plaid fabric napkins are from Home Goods.

Fresh & Dried Flowers and Herbs
Here I incorporated fresh zinnias and dried hydrangeas, but you can add any seasonal fresh or dried flowers that are available. I thought it would be fun to mix them together in this rusty vintage chicken feeder.
Check out these cute silverware pouches from Cutlery Couture. I love the rustic look and feel of the natural, woven jute. This set came with 4 herb-themed pouches. By cutting some fresh herbs from the garden, and adding them to the plate, along with the silverware pouch, it brought a little extra pizazz to the table.
Candles always add warmth and ambiance to any fall tablescape.

Seasonal Fruits and Flowers with Some Faux Sprinkled In
Here I used fresh pears, with their leaves, and faux red apples for the centerpiece.
Dahlias were added to a vintage galvanized bucket, but again, you can add any flowers from a Trader Joe’s or grocery store if you don’t have any fresh flowers available from your garden.
Pinecones and candles were added to each of these tablescapes for a feeling of warmth.

I hope you were able to pick up an idea or two on creating a Thanksgiving tablescape. Be sure to add place cards when hosting. We tend to be a little more informal and have less guests than the normal family. Another great idea would be to add a plaid throw to the table inplace of the usual table runner.
