Natural Thanksgiving Table Setting

I am extremely excited for this year's Thanksgiving.
The weather is cool enough for a warm gathering around the dinner table, I have begun preparing the menu and a few friends are joining in the feast for the first time.

Since our holiday dinners are usually shared with my small family, decorations were always kept simple for the table.

A set table with fancy silverware and a few lit candles was my go-to for the previous years.

However, since I am opening my house for more guests, I wanted to do something different yet affordable.

Because my dining room has neutral tones already, I went with a theme that wouldn't clash or be an eyesore.  So, as a foundation, I went for a patterned paper table runner and worked my way up.

Since the colors in the table runner are very simple, I used different shades of green in my accents.  I found two beautiful sage green pumpkins at my local farmer's market which went perfectly with my fresh hydrangea centerpiece and greenery.

Adding a few white pumpkins and candles to the center of the table completed the dinner table and made for an elegant display.

Branching out with style this Thanksgiving was a great idea and I'm sure my guests will enjoy the look.

Working on the table setting beforehand minimizes the infamous Thanksgiving morning rush and I can focus on other things like preparing the meal.

I hope all of you can be inspired and I wish you a very happy holiday!
