I get so much joy in setting a table. I like to really think of the details when it comes to tablescapes and add on all of the layers. If you are a bit shy when it comes to decorating your home then setting a table is a great way to dip your toes into it! It’s a lot more manageable to design a table than a full room. I find that so many people’s homes are pretty neutral so it’s easy to add some color with your tablecloth. I’m certain whatever you do will coordinate with your room. Remember your tablescape doesn’t need to match the room. It is nice if the tablescape and the room talk to each other. By talking to each other, I mean that they work nicely together and are stronger together instead of fighting each other with different decor styles.
A couple of years ago I tackled a Thanksgiving tablescape at my parents’ home. They have walnut-toned dining room furniture so I needed to work with that. I decided to lean to it and go with colors that work nicely with brown tones. Enter fuchsia and plum! Plum is a typical color used in the fall, but when you add a bright fuchsia to it, it really spices things up and makes it more modern! Of course, you could just leave good enough alone, but I threw leopard into the mix because it’s a fun neutral that works with all colors!
Here are some amazing Thanksgiving tablecloth options that can help inspire you as a jumping-off point for your tablescape!
Blues: When it comes to Thanksgiving and Fall where orange is a key color there is no better pairing than blue!
Option 1: Classic buffalo check navy that is also available in a bigger check version.
Option 2: Toile was the first pattern I ever fell in love with. It’s timeless and perfect!
Option 3: Fall plaid tablecloth with two tones of blue that play nicely with orange and yellow accents.
Neutrals: Keep things creamy and cozy and add on the texture with branches and burlap!
Option 1: Creamy plaid tablecloth that will immediately make you think of apple picking, pumpkin pie, crisp fall days!
Option 2: Lakeside Plaid has a bit of texture and frayed edges which help evoke that cozy feeling. That light tan color reminds me of a latte!
Option 3: Striped linen tablecloth works perfectly for a modern farmhouse that meets California chic style tablescape!
Pinks: Bright pinks and plum tones are always a bit unexpected for fall, but they really work perfectly in the season. They are in the burgundy/wine family just a bit less serious for my liking.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
