Easy Rustic Elegance Thanksgiving Table / by charity buchika

Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I thought I would share an easy rustic elegance tablescape for your Thanksgiving table.


I like to think that I am always on top of my game for my Thanksgiving table, but honestly the table is usually set about 5 minutes before my guests arrive. This table arrangement shows that you can easily use many of your everyday pieces paired with a show stopper arrangement, and a few pieces of bling to create a fabulous Thanksgiving Day table.


This year we wanted to break out of the traditional fall color scheme and use a subtle neutral color palette with creams, linens, and soft purples to celebrate Thanksgiving. One of my favorite things that I love about this table setting is the mixture of formal and rustic pieces melding together.


I used my grandmother’s silver along with our stoneware from our pottery line. The formal silver adds the extra shine to the table along with the clear glasses to give it a sparkle effect and keeps it from feeling too heavy.


The pumpkin centerpiece is the show stealer. It subtly brings the color scheme together and adds to that formal/rustic mix.


The arrangement could not be easier to replicate:

I hollowed out a Porcelain pumpkin and used a small vase that sits right inside the pumpkin.
For the flowers I used:

  • Hydrangeas

  • Purple kale

  • Hanging amaranthus

  • Soft purple roses.

I do suggest that you call your florist to track down the flowers. I happened to find all these beautiful stems right at my local florist.


I would love to hear what you are planning for your Thanksgiving table.

To recreate some or all of this table setting you can find many of the items in our shop.
