Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Tablescapes

It’s official, the holidays are about to begin! Thanksgiving is the time of year when we gather with family and friends to give thanks for the blessing we receive all year and the bountiful meal we are about to enjoy.

We are all familiar with the traditional Thanksgiving tablescape. We bring out our best china and decorate the table with Fall inspired decor. Perhaps this year we do something a little different; let’s jazz up this years festivities with a non-traditional Thanksgiving tablescape.

Get inspired with out-of-the-ordinary Thanksgiving tablescapes such as these:

This non-traditional tablescape could be used any time of the year, but with the addition of miniature pumpkins, Thanksgiving is still the theme of this fun and quirky place setting.

Simplistic dishware and tablecloth with a hint of orange implies those fall festivities are about to begin, but don’t knock you over with that typical gaudy Thanksgiving themed decor.
