Hi everyone! With Thanksgiving just a day away and overnight guests coming to stay I didn’t have much time to get my Thanksgiving table setting ready. Today I am sharing how I created a quick and colorful Thanksgiving Table setting in under 10 minutes and for FREE as part of the Create & Share Challenge. This DIY challenge is hosted by my blogging friends Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living and Cat from Pocketful of Posies and happens the last Wednesday of every month. After checking out my 10 minute DIY Thanksgiving Table Setting be sure to check out what my friends are sharing below for more 10 min holiday DIY ideas (including Christmas)!!!
Quick & Colorful Thanksgiving Table Setting

If you haven’t started your Thanksgiving Table Setting yet there is still time to make it pretty and colorful before your guests arrive. To start, I first laid down a simple white linen tablecloth and added my plaid blanket scarf to give the table a little color. I will be cooking for 18 on Thursday so we will have 12 adults at our dining room table and 6 more at the kids table.
For our dining room table, I brought in 6 pumpkins from our fall front porch that I had originally used to decorate the front of our farmhouse with. Since I have started decorating for Christmas, these pumpkins will be composted next week anyway so it didn’t make sense to keep them outside any longer.
I also added a few evergreen sprigs to break up the orange and also give a nod to the Christmas decorating that has started to happen. I added my red glass turkey as well as 2 small ball jars with small tea lights inside.
I followed our colorful Thanksgiving centerpiece with simple white china, white cloth napkins and glass water goblets. It’s important to me to bring out my favorite dishes for the holidays to celebrate the season and my guests.
Lastly, I added a little more color to our brass chandelier with some colorful maple branches.
It is my hope to one day have an antique crystal chandelier but for now I try my best to hide the brass one we have. Inspired by how pretty our chandelier looked at Christmas last year I traded the evergreen boughs for red Japanese maple leaves.
We are blessed to have a gorgeous Japanese maple tree in our yard that is still full of leaves every Thanksgiving.
This small decorating project only needs a few small branches to make it look stunning. *leave this project for last because the leaves will only stay fresh for a few hours before they start to wilt*
Our dining room fireplace mantel also has some evergreen sprigs, candles and a small pumpkin to tie it in with the Thanksgiving table.
I am officially ready for our Thanksgiving guests, at least in our dining room. If only I could make Thanksgiving dinner for free in under 10 minutes!!!!
I want to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday weekend. I am incredibly thankful to everyone who takes time out of their busy lives to stop by our blog.
