Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? If so, have you started thinking about how to set the table? My favorite table settings are simple and organic. I’ve found just about everything you need on Amazon to make your preparations easy and pretty all at the same time. Consider this your shopping list for a natural Thanksgiving table setting.
This natural, organic table design was one I used last year – cotton canvas tablecloths, pinecones, greenery, and pumpkins. It’s warm, cozy, and inviting. It’s the perfect backdrop to focus on the food and the family. I liked it so much, I plan to do it again this year.
Begin with a cotton canvas drop cloth. Yes, painter’s drop cloths! You can find them at Lowes, Home Depot, or on Amazon. I picked up two 108-inch natural canvas tablecloths. I use canvas drop clothes in all types of home projects – like covering chairs, curtains, and yes, as table cloths. They are the perfect warm natural color, absorbent in case spills happen, washable, and inexpensive. What more could a girl ask for!
I found similar canvas, heavyweight drop cloths on Amazon here:
On top of the tablecloth are the plates. I happen to have plenty of gold-trimmed white plates in the house, but these plastic plates on Amazon are a great match:
Set a folded napkin on top of each salad plate. I love these warm gray cloth napkins on Amazon and just ordered them so they’ll be here in plenty of time:
Bring more natural elements in by setting a single pine cone on top of each napkin. Choose small pinecones with flat bottoms so they stand up easily, like these on Amazon:
Keeping to the natural theme, I placed these faux white pumpkins down the center of the table.
Finally, add some greenery. The olive branch is a symbol of peace, so this pack of 10 branches on Amazon will look amazing in vases down the center of the table. I plan to substitute the mason jars for some olive green gourd vases I have.
I’m so excited to be hosting Thanksgiving this year and looking forward to the warm, natural, peaceful table setting filled with family and food.
