Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? Or perhaps you’re invited to a potluck and you’ve been put in charge of the decor… We’ve been quite taken with the large number of non-traditional Thanksgiving table setting ideas that have popped up this year! People are clearly ready to put a unique spin on seasonal decor, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it!
From monochromatic creations to a touch of neon style, the table settings below are rich in unexpected flourishes. Let them spark your imagination! And remember that many of today’s featured ideas come from decor and craft supplies that the designers found in their own homes. Yes, it’s time to dig out those vases that haven’t seen the light of day in months. Get creative, and don’t hesitate to use what you have!
A Monochromatic Thanksgiving
Our first featured idea plays up the monochromatic look, and for good reason. Designed by Christiane Lemieux, founder of DwellStudio, this table revels in neutrals so the rich colors of the Thanksgiving foods can speak for themselves. A grouping of the designer’s own vases and vessels beautifully pairs with spray painted pumpkins and gourds for a light, bright centerpiece. [details at Design Public]
This unconventional twist on the traditional Thanksgiving table makes a statement with red roses and geometric plates. Designed by Devin Kirk from Chicago home goods store Jayson Home, the table settings also feature clever touches like brass lamp shades used as candle holders, hand towels used as napkins, and a Polaroid that serves as a place card.

You didn’t think we’d forget about the current neon craze, did you? The next featured table setting idea comes from the creative mind of blogger and event planner Camille Styles, who had a hankering for neon-dipped pine cone place card holders. Fluorescent acrylic paint to the rescue! Check out the full tutorial at Camille Styles. [image by She-N-He Photography via Camille Styles]
