Keep your table settings uncomplicated and elegant. Use rustic tableware and simple linens, and consider adding personalized place cards for your guests. This will make them feel special and appreciated.

5. Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Part of your wedding decor checklist should be various centerpieces for weddings to decorate your tables. Instead of extravagant floral arrangements, go for Thanksgiving-themed centerpieces or rose gold flower centerpieces.

Hollow out pumpkins and use them as vases for your flowers. You can also fill glass containers with seasonal nuts and berries for a simple yet striking centerpiece.

6. Festive Favors

Thanksgiving Wedding Tablescape and Decor

For decades, brides have been blending their wedding day with cherished holidays. Christmas and Halloween weddings have become very popular. But, what about Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is a time when families often come together to share a delicious meal with treasured loved ones and to celebrate with gratitude the joys of their lives. 

Weddings aren’t so different. A Thanksgiving wedding is a wonderful way to bundle two celebrations of love and family into one truly memorable event!

However, a Thanksgiving wedding can also take a lot of time, energy, and resources. To pull off a classy, stress-free wedding and elegant reception, it is important to have a streamlined plan in place and to know what resources are available to you.

Here are some unique ideas and expert tips for using stylish products, such as our wedding-ready rosette tablecloth, to create a memorable event.

Bursting with Color Outdoors and Indoors

Thanksgiving is a fall holiday, so traditional shades of red, orange, gold, and brown are not only effective for setting the mood, but they also go well with the foods and flowers that are in season at that time. These colors look great when blended to accentuate an ivory base color. For instance, our sheer voile drape in ivory can be hung from our pipe and drape sets and complemented with a gold glitz sequins panel to create a head table backdrop with celebratory flair.

Pleasing Place Settings

Guests are happy to be sharing your special day. Don’t let them down by serving a standard party store fare! Create opulent place settings that the guests of your Thanksgiving wedding will be grateful for. A fancy plate charger may seem unnecessary but it is the key to creating an impeccable place setting. Your guests will love their meal served on a gold vintage-style charger plate beneath a gold-trimmed white plate. For the finishing touch, add neatly folded satin cloth napkins in chocolate brown, glittering gold utensils, and polished glass stemware.

Let’s Talk Turkey about Table Dressing

Serving a traditional turkey dinner with all of the fixings is a great idea for your Thanksgiving wedding reception but you need more than stuffing and cranberry sauce to add the kind of exquisite flair the event deserves. Don’t forget to dress your table as well as your turkey. As shown in our mock-up above, begin with our luxurious wedding rosette tablecloth in ivory. Add a gorgeous table runner in one of your main colors and top with perfectly planned place settings for a polished look.

Remember, the table did not come to your wedding reception alone. Chairs dressed in our ivory wedding rosette chair backs and chocolate brown spandex chair bands are the ideal wedding date for your stately tables.

Also, each of our luxurious linens, from the cloth napkins to the satin chair sashes, are washable and reusable. Each of your Thanksgiving anniversary parties can be just as perfectly grand and exquisitely elegant as the wedding day itself!

A Thanksgiving wedding can be a beautiful and heartwarming experience. By following these simple tips, you can streamline your decor planning process and create a memorable, cozy atmosphere for your special day. Keep it simple, keep it thankful, and enjoy every moment of your Thanksgiving wedding.
