This year’s Thanksgiving tablescape is definitely much simpler than last years.¬†

Farmhouse Harvest Table

I really love beautiful tablecloths & linens but this year I decided to keep our farmhouse table bare with no tablecloth.

I wanted to appreciate the beautiful farmhouse table that Jason refinished for me. 

And something about Thanksgiving just screams huge harvest table, doesn’t it?

I dusted a few with white spray paint but left the rest natural. 

I love the texture they bring to the table. 

Plus they are free!

White China & Glassware for the Thanksgiving Tablescape Settings

I set the table with white china & clear glassware that have been handed down to me from family members. 

Using heirloom pieces is such a sweet way to remember past family members & be more thankful for the people I love & care about!

Our turkey platter was my great great grandmothers, the white china was my parents wedding china & the glass pitchers were Jason’s grandmothers.¬†

Using these pieces always makes me stop & think about all the meals that have been shared with my dishes. 

How fun is that? ūüôā¬†

I can’t help but stop & smile!

White Cloth Napkins, Green Napkin Rings & Shipping Tags for Name Place Markers

Although I did not add at tablecloth I did add cloth napkins with my favorite green glass napkin rings to our Thanksgiving tablescape. 

I used simple shipping tags (shipping tags found on Amazon) as place cards with my hope that people will write what they are thankful for on the back & add them to our Thankful tree over the dining room fireplace.

I think it’s so important (especially with kids) to have them stop & think about things they can be thankful for.¬†

A Thankful tree is a great way to do this.

There are many different versions of Thankful trees you can find on Pinterest.

For our Thankful tree I collected branches from our yard & simply placed them in a vase with a few Christmas balls & shipping tags hung on it.

Simple & elegant.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving Susan!!! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about our Thanksgiving table and as always for stopping by! Take care, Tara

  1. I really like the idea of ‘simple elegance’. Especially at Thanksgiving, it reminds us of the things to be remembered, appreciated and cherished (your family pieces on your table do this). The table itself is wonderful; the love, work, and caring that went into the refinishing (I’d never cover that up). Also, the idea of place cards to be added to the tree; what a ‘year -to-year’ keepsake. Love the whole idea; it’s so beautiful.

    1. Hi Carol! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my Thanksgiving table. I am really trying hard to make Thanksgiving simple but still very meaningful this year. Have a happy Thanksgiving and take care, Tara

  2. That is such a gorgeous table Tara. The pine is so warm and rustic. I especially appreciate how you have all of your family’s heirloom pieces that you get to use every year and think of the previous generations. I really like the way you have decorated very simple with little touches here and there. The idea of the Thanking tree is excellent. In this way you can all share in tradition, which is really important for kids. Enjoy your Thanksgiving in this lovely room.

  3. This tablescape is simply stunning! I love how you used heirloom dishes and incorporated the thankful tree. It’s all so beautiful. Hugs, CoCo

  4. So lovely! Seasonal but not busy. Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday as there is no emphasis on gifts – just the chance to cook for those you love and remember all the blessings in your life. I also use white dinnerware for the table but I’m going to go out and spray a few pine cones right now!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by Kim! I agree that Thanksgiving is such a special holiday simply for the fact that there are no gifts exchanged and that it forces us to stop and just be thankful. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Take care, Tara
