3 Fun Décor Ideas for an Unforgettable Thanksgiving Dinner

thanksgivingIt’s finally November, and you know what that means – Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!

Whether you’re hosting a dinner for the first time or you’re no stranger to inviting guests into your apartment for the holidays, keep reading to discover 3 décor ideas you can use to create an unforgettable Thanksgiving experience.

Use layering

Look at pictures of stunning dinner tables on Pinterest, and you’ll notice most of them have one thing in common:

They use layering.

Rather than simply placing one plate on a bare table, they’ll use placemats, multiple plates, and other elements to create a fine dining experience right in their home.

If you want to try this, start by finding placemats, napkins, and plates for your table. Don’t be afraid to mix different textures and dinnerware styles – it’s a great way to add contrast and have fun with your décor!

Spruce up your chairs

Dressing up your dining room chairs for the holiday is a great way to make your Thanksgiving dinner stand out.

For example, you could start by wrapping a piece of burlap around the back of each chair. Then, you could add a bow on top of each piece of burlap to create a holiday-inspired, layered look.

Experiment and choose a style that meshes with the rest of your décor!

Create a mason jar centerpiece

One way to do this is to paint and/or decorate the jars, fill them with flowers, and tie a bow around them.

Whatever you do, just keep in mind that you’ll probably want to avoid excessively tall centerpieces. Sure, they can be stunning in the right setting – but you don’t want your guests struggling to see each other from right across the table!
