1. Mix and Match.

Pair mismatched plates (white and gray), napkins (gray and deep fuchsia), and glasses (green goblets and vintage coupes) for this unexpectedly cohesive tablescape. An eclectic Thanksgiving table allows you to mix and match and play with color. Lay a magnolia leaf garland down the center of the table and add persimmons, small orange and red bouquets and other organic elements for a natural and seasonal table design.

2. Setting A White Table.

To add seasonal texture to a table set with white linen and china, create a centerpiece using a combination of faux and real white pumpkins on top of piles of eucalyptus branches for a classic look with a modern twist.

3. Dark Hues For A Southern Look.

Dark & deep tones create an air of mystery and intimacy to this table design. The Country Estate china by Juliska set against a tablecloth in an earthy color sets the tone. The addition of gold napkin rings and other gold serving pieces, lends an elegant contrast.

4. Add Citrus For A Splash.

Add sweet, juicy flair to your holiday by centering your table decor around actual fruits of the season, such as these satsumas. Fruit adds a modern splash of color and a cheerful contrast to most dining room table designs.

5. Glitzy & Gold.

Even if you live in the middle of a bustling city, Thanksgiving is your chance to get rustic with your decor. The simple gold and white color palette is sophisticated, while the bundled stalks of wheat add in an organic element, so appropriate for Thanksgiving. (Love the turkey candle set on a cake plate!)

6. Blue & White.

Blue & white is perfect for any occasion, even Thanksgiving, and a perfect way to digress from the traditional fall color scheme. This design is free of flowers incorporating chocolate brown accents in the form of pinecones, which also double as place card holders for each setting.

7. Add Some Spice, Literally.

Sticks of cinnamon and stars of anise are all it takes to instantly top off this cozy Thanksgiving table design, that also features a homey blend of denim blue, chocolate brown and crisp linen white.

8. Bright & Airy Pastels

For a bit of relaxed elegance, this combination of brass elements with pastel linens elevates the look of a casual dining room. White candles tucked into antique brass candlesticks, brass shot glasses that double as votive holders, a bay leaf garland and heirloom pumpkins cast a note of laid-back romance onto this Thanksgiving table design.
