10 Glam Tablescape Ideas For Your Friendsgiving
by Alexis Puebla
If you’ve been given the coveted honor of hosting your Friendsgiving dinner with the girls this year then well, you know a thing or two about the importance of presentation. The meal isn’t the only thing seeking some flavor this year, so give your tablescape some serious TLC with these Instagram-worthy tips and tricks.
This ultra bright tablescape brought to us by Anna from Annabode + Co brings the bright summer hues to our autumn table setting in perfect fashion. She uses real satsumas to give the fruity pop of color—but be sure to get them straight off the vine, as the green leaves are, “just as important as the fruit.” The unexpected yet modern look of this citrus centerpiece is a pleasant change from the typical pumpkins and turkeys we’re used to seeing come Thanksgiving Day. Give your Friendsgiving a fun and refreshing twist with this super fun tablescape.

Fun & Floral
We got some serious floral inspiration from Caroline Bailly, owner of L’Atelier Rouge—a luxury floral company in New York City, and let’s just say… we’re running, not walking, to our nearest Trader Joe’s to get our table ready. Bailly is full of great tips and tricks for table decor, especially if you’re looking to impress on a budget. “Mix and match little plants that you can find at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market. Stick to orange and/or yellow fall shades and create a runner down the length of your dining table,” says Bailly. When asked which items to splurge on, she said fall foliage and mums because they are, “cost effective and dramatic.” And if this is your first time hosting a big dinner gig, she recommends taking care of your table decor ahead of time so that on the day of your dinner you can focus solely on the food!

Think Outside Of The Blue-Box
Inspired to create a tablescape that was free of flowers, Jennifer from Celebrating Everyday Life has given us a blue and white Thanksgiving table design that is both dreamy and elegant. Looking for a chocolate brown accent, Jennifer clung to the idea of adding pinecones to her table. They definitely add a beautiful fall flair to the table design, but can we talk about that blue for a second? We are majorly obsessing over her place settings, which are a combination of three different plates that button up her blue and white theme in a perfectly paired, mismatched fashion.

Ah, yes—we had to include a traditional Thanksgiving tablescape design if not for any other reason than that fact that it would truly be a disservice to leave this plaid-inspired table from Home Is Where The Boat Is off of our list. The orangey plaid printed tablecloth stands out in a big way despite the gorgeous runner of pumpkins across the table capturing our attention. Aside from the charming little corn stalks, we are loving the turkey dinnerware, which are all different in their own way. The opportunities to get creative with this particular table setting are endless, so start with an autumn tablecloth and get to decorating!

Roses, Gold, & Rose Gold Tablescape
Okay, we officially want every single thing on this table (adorable puppy included) by Tone It Up. The copper chargers and silverware are so fitting for fall, while the matching leaves are a perfect finishing touch. And though everything about this table like the copper pumpkins, white candles and candle holders, and quartz centerpiece are insanely loveable—we can’t bare to look away from those gorgeous blooms. We love the rose gold vibe paired with the fresh yellow and white roses, peonies, and dinner plate dahlias. Pour us a glass, because dinner is served!
