Thanksgiving Tables

Are you thinking about Thanksgiving yet? Since the leaves around here have started changing, and the fall temps seem to have arrived to stay, I’ve got Thanksgiving on my mind. Thanksgiving tables to be exact.

For our table this year, I know a couple of things for sure. One, that I’ll be using my vintage Friendly Village plates.

And, two, mix and match vintage silverware.

Other than that, I’m still deciding.

The Thanksgiving tables I’ve pinned to my Fall Pinterest board seem to have some common ingredients: runners down the middle, lots of natural elements (think greenery, pumpkins, apples, pears), and candles, especially long tapers. 

Here are some tables I’ve found especially beautiful:

Jenni’s table at Dear Lillie

Tessa’s table at Nine and Sixteen

This outdoor table at Style Me Pretty

And I love how these last two tables incorporate blue – not a color you think about when you think of Thanksgiving.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? What kind of table do you like to set?


  1. I don’t own any holiday dishes, yours are lovely. I also don’t own much (vintage) silver flatware; I do have a small amount of silver plate that I inherited … Perhaps I could mix and match that with my everyday stainless for interest at my table, what do you think? Hmm, I think the look and feel – in hand and aesthetically – are just too too different. Maybe some new cloth napkins and pretty flowers will do the trick. It will be a small gathering.
    Your ideas are always heartwarming. I look forward to holiday posts.

    1. I would try the mix and match, Linda, and see what you think. New napkins and pretty flowers will also be a treat. I’m sure you will set a lovely table. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Wonderful inspiration ideas here. The one from Nine and Sixteen really attracted me. I read her post and loved it. I have a mix and match group of dishes for Thanksgiving.

    1. Mix and match sounds wonderful, Liz.

  3. Isn’t the woman’s name Melaine? (My Sweet Savannah)

    1. You’re right, Daphne! My eye has always seen it as Melanie.

  4. Julie, it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance through Stacey’s feature! We share common interests, two of which are tablescaping and vintage finds. I look forward to receiving your posts in my inbox – subscribed!
    Happy holiday season to you and yours!
