A Modern Minimal Thanksgiving

This modern minimal Thanksgiving table from Sunday Suppers allows the food to be the star of the show. Simple white linens, clean lines and organic decor speak to a simpler time and let the love shine through beyond the table.

Featured on Apartment Therapy, the author experienced a modern Thanksgiving with friends and photographed the entire experience. She goes on to say that this style is “a really beautiful mix of old and new styles and a very modern Thanksgiving.” This is another example of the use of clean lines and organic decor in your Thanksgiving table setting.

A Western Style Thanksgiving

Blogger Primitive & Proper set the perfect Thanksgiving table that would fit really nicely in a western or rustic home. She fills the space with wonderful pieces such as a Mexican blanket as a runner, an aqua vintage pitcher filled with vintage arrows, wooden carved antelopes, handmade wooden vases and wood planks.  She goes on to say, “I love the rustic and whimsical feel, and love the colors the blanket and arrows bring.” The colors and textures are warmly inviting.

This rustic centerpiece pallet box from Country Living was designed by blogger Anita Diaz and would fit perfectly into a Western style tablescape. She took a pallet box and filled it with pumpkins, berries, candles and cedar. Cozy, warm colors invite great conversations. Traditional dishware rounds out the whole look.

A Traditional Thanksgiving

You do not get more traditional than a table setting created by Ivan Day for the BBC documentary Pride and Prejudice. Polished silver, white table cloth, tall candles, and colorful food bring together this traditional look.

This tablescape inspiration came from It says, “Take some inspiration from your garden and use roses, apples and gourds to make a rich combination.” It’s traditional, yet simple.
