DIY Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape


I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just a few days away! I have been crafting for weeks, and I’m so excited to debut my rustic tablescape to my family and friends later this week. But if you won’t be sitting across from me this Thursday, take a look at my competed table for some Thanksgiving decorating inspiration!

Over the last few weeks I’ve made some DIY gold vases and copper leaf place cards. Both of these projects were simple to do and add just the right amount of shine to my holiday table.

To turn my glass bottles into a centerpiece, a picked up a 1/8 wooden pallet at Michael’s and stained it. The pallet acts as a central point to organize my bottles, votives, and greenery. It also allows me to add some eye-catching levels to my table.


I filled my bottles with some white and yellow baby’s breath and rudbeckia sunflowers. Then I filled in the gaps between the bottles with some evergreen branches I grabbed in the yard.


I love that Thanksgiving is a comfortable, homey kind of holiday, but it’s still a holiday and a little sparkle never hurts. In addition to my metallic vases and leaves, I chose a light wheat colored tablecloth with a little gold thread running through it for a subtle touch of festive elegance.

To keep my table from getting too glitzy, I dug out these tapestry-inspired napkins and tied them with twine for a more casual feel.


Once the table was set, I finished each setting with my spray painted copper leaf place cards. These turned out to be my favorite part of the table. I loved the look of the metallic leaf on the white plates, and you can’t get any more fall than actual fallen leaves. I think they add just the right rustic touch to bring my Thanksgiving table together.


I hope this tablescape gave you some inspiration to decorate your own table this year. But no matter how much I love my centerpiece and place settings, nothing looks better on a Thanksgiving table than all my favorite recipes surrounded by all my favorite people. Here’s wishing you the happiest of Thanksgivings. Enjoy!
