A Holiday Affair in the Making (Part 2): Table Arrangements

There are many ways to establish the “tone” of a Thanksgiving table, whether it be casual, formal, whimsical, or  rustic. One of the easiest ways to do that is by starting with a table arrangement. You may opt to have a professional arrangement created for your holiday table, or instead, you may be in search of inspiration to create your own! Take a look at some examples of different styles of centerpieces that can be used as a starting point from which to “build” the rest of your table. (And, of course, don’t forget to stop by Knotting Hill Interiors to check out our fabulous selection of Thanksgiving decor for your home!)

Who better, but Martha Stewart, to share table design ideas:

This formal arrangement is made with pomegranates, tulips, and roses.

The rich colors and textures of this arrangement are fabulous!

Immature persimmons and granny smith apples create the unexpected pops of bright green color in this centerpiece.

Classic and beautiful...

Cornucopias are the most traditional of Thanksgiving centerpieces.

A white pumpkin makes a perfect container for this arrangement of fall-colored florals.

Love the drama of these golden turkeys against the dark-colored candles.

A simple blend of different autumn colors creates this lovely table setting.

This wheat centerpiece works perfectly with the taupe tablecloth and round table.

From Country Living:

Better Homes & Gardens has some interesting DIY ideas for table centerpieces:

This is such a fabulous "rustic" centerpiece. Be sure to check the Better Homes & Gardens website if you would like to re-create this arrangement. They include step-by-step instructions!

This mossy basket is perfectly matched with the natural feel of these dark-colored gourds.

I love the added interest of the peeled limes in this arrangement!

Simple compotes filled with fruit and pumpkins in autumn colors complete the look of this table.

Kumquats and nuts mixed with clove-embellished clementines make an elegant statement.

Sometimes, simple is best. Take a look at these acorn branches mixed with clemetines in a plain vase. Somehow, it works!

This acorn basket could be created right from your very own backyard! I also love the pears and other natural elements the basket is stuffed with!

From Southern Living:

This table is adorned with arrangements in non-traditional colors interspersed with silver antler candelabra.

This arrangement, comprised of fall leaves and elegant florals in muted colors, is just stunning.

Here is a close-up!

Sterling and poppies... how can you go wrong with that?

Pumpkins and herbs mixed together make this interesting centerpiece. Check the website for how-to instructions!

WOW! Now that makes a statement!

I saved my favorite for last! All of the elements - the bird, the silver, the florals, the candles of different heights - all contribute to the breathtaking outcome of this grouping.

NOW, GO HAVE AN “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
