Modern Thanksgiving Table Decor

Thanksgiving is the time of the year when the whole family gathers together at the table. A curated table setting will set the mood and make this moment even more memorable. We have some ideas to share if you want to go for a more modern approach to the holiday tradition. You’ll be sure to find a modern Thanksgiving table setting that suits your style! 

Add warmth with wood

Even though there is an underlying holiday decor theme, you can’t go wrong if you adjust it to fit with your signature style. These wooden placemats add some unique charm to this modern table setting. We love how the black metal candlesticks and lanterns convey a contemporary feel to this festive table.

Neutral setting

A traditional bright orange setting might not work when you have more of a neutral aesthetic. But you can still find a way to bring a festive spirit to the table. Layer warm neutrals and add natural elements to round up your decor.

Elevate the theme with pampas grass 

A black and gold color scheme is ideal for a modern tablescape. With pampas grass and a couple of candles, your otherwise ordinary table will become a cozy spot for holiday dining.
