4 Amazing Thanksgiving Dinner Table Ideas to Make Your Celebration Special
Thanksgiving, the most popular holiday in America, is a time for food, spending time with family, and enjoying the passing of seasons. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to start planning your menu. Apart from your menu, though, you also need to think about table preparations. If you're looking for some inspiration, here are tips to make your dinner table more magical this Thanksgiving.
Create a centerpiece.
Your centerpiece is one of the essential parts of your Thanksgiving table. It should be something that catches the eye and makes a statement. A great idea is to use an autumn-themed wreath as your base. You can add some candles, leaves, berries, or other fall-themed decorations. If you want something a bit more creative, you can try using a pumpkin as your centerpiece. Just hollow it out and add some votive candles, flowers, or other Thanksgiving decorations inside. You can even use different-sized pumpkins to create a tiered effect.
Choose a color scheme.
Choosing a color scheme will help set the tone for your table. You can use traditional fall colors like orange and brown or mix them with jewel tones for a more elegant look. If you're stuck, try using colors that complement your dinnerware or tablecloth. You can also use colors to create a theme. For example, if you're planning on serving Thanksgiving dinner outdoors, you may want to go with a nature-inspired color scheme of green and earth tones. Or, if you intend to watch football after dinner, you can use your favorite team's colors to decorate the table.
Use pretty fall leaves as decoration.
One of the things that makes Thanksgiving so unique is the change in season. You can bring the beauty of fall into your home by using leaves as part of your table decorations. Collect some leaves from your yard or go on a nature hike and gather a variety of different types. You can then use these to create place cards and centerpieces or even just scatter them around the table for a pop of color.
If you really want to make your Thanksgiving dinner table stand out, think beyond the traditional turkey and fixings. Consider serving a special Thanksgiving dinner with foods from your heritage or culture. You can also get creative with your side dishes and desserts. And don't forget to have fun with your table decorations! After all, it's your table and your dinner, so make it as unique as you want it to be.
Consider using scented candles or wax melts.
Your dinner table will look great (and memorable too!) with scented candles or wax melts. You can find these in various Thanksgiving-themed scents, such as pumpkin spice, cranberry, and cinnamon. The great thing about scented candles is that they can double as part of your table centerpiece. Just choose ones made from organic materials, like soy or beeswax, to avoid any harmful chemicals.

Otherwise, you can always opt for wax melts that can be melted in a safer, heat-resistant bowl. The best advantage of using wax melts is that you can change the scent anytime you want without buying new candles. Plus, the clean-up's a breeze too, since these often come with wax liners that you can just discard after use. You can try Flippin’ Happy’s safe-to-use wax melts made from all-natural soy wax.
