Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I love having my family and friends convene as we celebrate being grateful. It’s become a tradition for our family to celebrate Thanksgiving at our beach home. It’s a log home so it’s always cozy. I enjoy spending time decorating the table in a theme that fits the rustic atmosphere.

Bring the outdoors in by adding a natural wood element like the wood round placements in lieu of chargers.
Bring the outdoors inside! Go outside and pick up pinecones, leaves, greens for your rustic table scape.
This type of theme makes people feel comfortable and cozy. Sprinkle some little white pumpkins down the center of the table.
Add lots of candles to warm up the feeling of the table. Gorgeous!
Using gorgeous linen napkins and runner
Using high quality linen napkins and runners add instant elegance and class to your table. Crown Linen Designs has the the most gorgeous linens. The look and feel of these high quality European lines are like no other.
The embroidered designs are gorgeous and elegant. When you have these linens on your table you don’t need much else.
Crown Linen Design’s pinecone embroidered homegoods collection is festive and classy! Great for October all the way through the holidays!
Don’t you just love this look? The Crown linen placement is another way to add elegance to your table scape.
I like to use Crown Linen’s 100% European linen square table topper with an embroidered “Royal Emblem” in all four corners. Lay flat on table and scrunch, or use as a small tablecloth for different look.
This table setting includes copper spray painted chargers, feather cloth napkins, white plates, white cable knit plates, Thankful printable on brown kraft cardstock and copper dipped pencils. (via Bless’er House)
If your home is glamours and you want to pull off a glamours look. Add gold and copper tones to your table scape.
Consider adding a metallic runner with lots of white pumpkins. The more flowers the better. I love the orange pink roses pictured in this table scape.
Do you have gold chargers? If not, it’s worth investing in some. I have used my gold chargers for over 15 years and I never get tired of them. White plates pop on a gold charger. White plates with a gold trim look stunning!
I love blue and white! I thought this place setting was clean and nautical. This table scape is fun and easy to pull off if you have blue and white plates, napkins or a runner.
Consider painting mini pumpkins a gray-blue and mix them with white pumpkins.
You can’t ever go wrong with black and gold. Use gold chargers so it will add rich gold to the table design.
Paint pumpkins, glass jars gold and add white flowers. This look is amazing on a black table.
Transform a pumpkin into a planter with these easy steps. Remove the top quarter of a small pumpkin. Scoop out the seeds and pulp and fill with floral foam and flowers (here, dahlias, scabiosa, strawflowers, zinnias, forget-me-nots, and nigella). Surround your centerpiece with acorns, squash, and other seasonal elements.
Silver toned items make for a very pretty way to decorate the table. Several pinecones on a wood tray or slab along with white pumpkins is simple and easy to do. This centerpiece idea is from DIY Project bloominghomestead.com
This tone-on-tone assemblage starts with miniature citrus fruits (key limes, kumquats) and Peruvian lilies bursting with color. Picture provided by Real Simple.
