We know that the Thanksgiving holiday is about gratitude and good food, but setting the perfect Thanksgiving tablescape is always one of our favorite traditions as well.
Whether you like a glam, luxe look or a cozy, homemade touch, adding a DIY touch to your décor brings a personal, custom feel to your holiday celebrations.
Here are five easy DIY décor ideas we love this year:
A chalkboard menu puts hard work on display in a cute, farmhouse style that we love. Recruit the family member with the prettiest penmanship and have them write up the day’s menu on a framed chalkboard (bonus points for illustrations that accompany it) that can act as a culinary centerpiece on a side table or buffet.
Make your own custom napkin rings! This is one of the easiest elements on the Thanksgiving table to DIY. We love these for their natural, earthy look. Fresh herbs such as rosemary and thyme are a wonderful addition that add to the sensory experience and bring a fun pop of color to the table.
Bring the outside in! These pine cone name card placeholders embody everything that’s beautiful about the Thanksgiving season and require a simple walk into the great outdoors, a little creativity and not much else. Incorporating natural bits and pieces into your holiday décor makes it feel warm and comfortable – just as the season should be.
Add a hint of glam to your holiday with a simple spray of your favorite metallic paint. We love how these rich, gold pumpkins bring some shine and sparkle to the table’s centerpiece. This is such an easy DIY touch that your guests will surely remember.
Finally, make it personal! Go one step beyond the personalized name cards for the table setting and add mini photos of your guests to each seat instead. It’s such a fun (and simple!) way to set the table and give it a custom feel that everyone will love. It will also serve as a reminder to all of the people around the table about how much they mean to us. And after all, isn’t that what the season is really about?
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
