Rustic, Traditional, Modern & More: Best Thanksgiving Table Settings Inspiration

Pin it button big

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it's the one perfect holiday gathering that combines food and decor equally AND can be shared by all. While your turkey recipe is important (see our top recipe here from Emma), table setting is equally important in telling the story of Thanksgiving, and it's all about gratitude for those around you and having food on your table as the winter sets in.

In my family, I have always taken on creating a beautiful table setting, and as I am thinking about it already, I thought I'd troll around and collect up all the really awesome inspiration I could to share with you. Enjoy and add to the list by linking to your own ideas in the comments. I'll follow up next Monday with what I came up with on Thursday. :)
