Thanksgiving table setting ideas
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. For full
Today I’m sharing a simple, rustic Thanksgiving table setting using some
vintage dishes and silverware. I put it together using things that I already
had so it was budget-friendly. I have a large stash of vintage dishes and
enjoy creating interesting tablescapes with them.
It’s part of this month’s Thrifty Style Team challenge hosted by Julie at
Redhead and Decorate
and you can see all of this month’s contributions at the bottom of the post.

My mom and sister are also collectors of vintage items and my mom recently
gave me some of these
brown drip pottery dinner plates. I thought warm tones looked pretty for a casual Thanksgiving table.
I found the vintage chevron oneida silver at the thrift store a few years ago and
cleaned them up. My husband and I have been binge watching Yellowstone and
the whole place setting makes me think of Montana and western decor for
some reason. I’ve had the blue linen napkins
for a while and we use them regularly. The look like linen but are not
quite as heavy.
I used a
copper colored pitcher
with the same arrangement that I put together for my soft muted fall tablescape. I anchored it with a wooden cutting board and used a
plaid blanket scarf
as a table scarf. You can see my favorite ways to decorate with blanket scarves here:
A few pine cones and orange slices were tucked into the gaps for more of a
fall look. I’m thinking this little spot is going to get a fun makeover for
Christmas. Can’t you see it?
That does it for my simple, rustic Thanksgiving table decor. I’m not hosting
this year so I’ll be changing this out soon. Stay tuned for my Christmas
tablescape coming up in a couple of weeks.

Here’s a soft muted table that I created a few weeks ago. The flowers are the
same, but the overall look is lighter and softer. You can see the details

And here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on. I’ll have blue themed
Christmas decor for the first time so I’m using a mix of handmade, vintage,
and new decorations. I haven’t started my Christmas decorating quite yet so
I’m not sure how it’s all going to turn out, but I’m excited to see it all
