Setting that Thanksgiving Table Like a Pro

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and this year I refuse not to be ready. So I’m sharing some tips to get your table ready for that family gathering.

HAVE FUN WITH COLOR

Don't go crazy with a fall palette with golds and reds, think like a designer. What color do you love to see? How about a gray and blush palette for a modern home. Maybe you like rustic pieces, so you'd like to mix golden woods with black accents.

MIX AND MATCH

Growing up my grandmother used to have great place settings, so I took a page from her playbook. Add a textural table runner or tablecloth, layer place mats and a decorative charger. And don't be afraid to break out your vintage china and pair it with something modern. 

CREATE A DESIGNER CENTERPIECE

Pumpkins are easy to get in various shapes, sizes and colors, but why not add in some fresh herbs? Tall candle holders with LED candles add a warm glow. Mirror tiles can really set the stage for something special. 

UTILIZE THE KISS METHOD

If you want to have a space where you can all chat, keep it simple silly. Lower pieces can also make for a stunning look. Keep those site lines open and consider people's reach.  

For last minute designs, just breath and really keep in mind how the table is being used. If you are looking to plan ahead for setting your next holiday table, contact Muse Interior Design. There is still plenty of time to get your dining space designed for the holidays.
