Ideas for your Thanksgiving Decor, Including the Dinner Table

If you need some fresh ideas for your Thanksgiving decor then you've come to the right place.  Thanksgiving decorations can be inexpensive....You can re-purpose everyday things into a Fall or Thanksgiving theme by changing the color or adding embellishments such as pine cones, pumpkins and acorns etc.  Check out the photos below and see if they inspire you to use something you already have on hand.

Oh, how beautiful!  Can you just see these autumn leaves in these fun fall colors going down the center of your Thanksgiving table or on your buffet table. They could be placed anywhere and make a fabulous fall statement.   Raw Bone Studio

Such a darling way to mark each place setting and soooo Thanksgiving!  All you need is a little paint and a pot.  Get all the details over at  Better Homes and Garden

Such a simple and inexpensive way to decorate. Use mini pumpkins and platters, candlesticks etc for display-So pretty! Better Homes and Garden

Perfect for your Thanksgiving table.  The only thing I would add is a name so this could be  a place card for the table.   The Craft Patch

These amazing leaves would look great going down the middle of your Thanksgiving table, or in an arrangement or even inside a glass chimney with candles. Love the colors-You decide what they look like.   A leaf banner using these would be nice too. Get all the instructions over at  Better Homes and Gardens

Here's a fun tradition to begin this Thanksgiving. It's a Thankful Roll. Easy to do and fun for the kids.  Get all the instructions over at  The Idea Room

Make these tissue paper pumpkins for a place card. Super Easy and inexpensive to make but very cute.  Tutorial included  Little Miss Craft

Just an old wooden box filled with fabulous thanksgiving/fall items. Easy to do!  Bunches and Bits

How pretty these nuts look with the candles. Lovely arrangement and so easy too  The Langham Project

Vinyl letters on glass cylinders...how easy is that! You can buy glass cylinders like these at the dollar store.  Naptime Decorator

This is more of a casual fall or Thanksgiving table. Love the plaid placemats. You can get a coupon for JoAnn's for 50% off a cut of fabric and make up some nice placemats or look at the dollar store.  A Little Lovliness

This little veggie turkey would be perfect for the kid's table.....If you make veggies fun they might actually eat them. Of course, you'll need a fabulous ranch dip too. Source

I love this look. Simply cut out some autumn leaves, or use silk leaves or gather some from the yard and attach to the ribbon that goes around the entire table. Nice!  BHG  See more Thanksgiving table settings at this link too. 

Happy Thanksgiving from November 1952. No, I wasn't born yet but I do appreciate this vintage cover, especially the Mom preparing Thanksgiving dinner in a dress with a lovely half apron. (what good is a half apron, in my experience it's always the top that gets food on it)  You go girl!   The Ward-O-Matic
