What, When, Where: Last-Minute Tabletop Decor Ideas for Thanksgiving

November 25, 2013

My favorite part about the holidays? It’s not the food. It’s not the gifts. It’s the decorations. I love the excuse to deck my home out in festive lights, candles, wreaths and ornaments.


I especially love holiday table setting.


Though I’m still not quite at the point to host my family’s holiday get-togethers (one day I will write a blog post where I won’t allude to the small size of my condo, but today is not that day), an enviable task still left to my parents and inlaws. But, when my day comes, I will have dozens of ideas for the perfectly set table. Here are a few of my favorites.


The glamorous table: Mercury glass, crystal and metallics create a table that feels festive and special. (For product information, visit me on Polyvore)

The traditional table: Though I love getting creative, a traditional holiday table with colors and details that pay homage to the holiday is just as beautiful.

The rustic-modern table: This one might be my favorite look. Modern patterns combine with rustic burlap and wooden accents for a table that’s sophisticated but casual.

Happy holidays!
