Whether your Thanksgiving traditions feature a formal, candlelit dinner table or a relaxed afternoon with football and feasting (or even somewhere in between), use a few of our holiday tips to help style a festive Thanksgiving table that is just right for you and yours.

  • Roll out craft paper for a simple, neutral runner or tablecloth. Decorate it yourself or invite guests to write messages–perfect for a kids’ table!

  • Brighten the mood with a little sparkle! Weave a strand of battery-powered LED fairy lights through some greenery centerpieces and accent with touches of gold to add drama and style to your Thanksgiving table.

  • Incorporate organic elements (like seasonal gourds and foliage) along with natural textures (like burlap) for a clean, classic look. Glowing flameless candles in simple lanterns can also make your table look festive without feeling too stuffy or overly fancy.
