Today I’m joining my “Year of Feasting” friends. We’ve been sharing our tablescapes and how we entertain with our friends and family throughout the year. Thanks to Dannyelle from Life is a Party for hosting our little group!
Join me today as I share a simple and easy fall tablescape all ready for Thanksgiving. There will be links at the bottom of the post for you to check out my talented friends too.
Simple and Easy Fall Tablescape
Next week will be the first weekend in October and we Canadians will be celebrating our Thanksgiving Holiday. I recently shared my dining room decorated for fall using faux eaucalyptus, baby boo pumpkins and some glass tea lights up the centre of the table. It looks great for the fall season and I knew it would transition into a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape too. I simply added place settings to what was already there. What could be easier than that?
I love collecting vintage white ironstone pieces, they go with everything and they’ve stood the test of time. A platter for the turkey, tureens for the veggies, stuffing and gravy and all we need is the food! I used rattan placemats from Ikea, plain white napkins and my workhorse white plates. These fun blue ceramic bowls tie in the rest of the blue decor I used for fall and add a bit of colour to the table.
Last year my daughter and son in law hosted us at their house to Celebrate their first Thanksgiving together as a married couple. It was such a great time for all of us and a bit of a break for me! We’ll be back at our house this year as my son in law is out of the country with the military. We’ll have to make this one a little extra special as we’ll all be missing him. I love to decorate and make my home as cozy and inviting as possible for my family. It’s really about making memories!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour and that you all have a warm and memorable Thanksgiving with your family and friends! Don’t forget to check out the links below to follow along with my friends as they share their Thanksgiving tables.

You are so right – Thanksgiving (and beyond) is about making memories. As long as we’re together and have some great food, that’s what’s important. That being said, it doesn’t at all hurt to have a pretty table, haha. Yours is just perfect – such a peaceful colour palette. I could spend hours sitting there with a glass of wine. And your mantel! OMG! The gently hued pumpkins with the brass? So great. Happy Thanksgiving Kim!
Oh thanks so much Joann. It is about making memories. I love that mantel too! It turned out so pretty!

Such a beautiful table. I love all your little details -the eucalyptus, the tea lights, and the baby boos. And those plates are just perfect for tying everything together. Great job and Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks so much Dannyelle. Happy Thanksgiving to you my friend!
Love your table! The blue lacy dishes are sooo pretty, and the greenery in the centre is simple but elegant. Totally charming – have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Thanks Sarah. I love all those things too! Have a great Thanksgiving as well!

So soft and lovely! That is some BEAUTIFUL faux eucalyptus!!!!!!! It’s perfect! Best wishes and many thanks to your son-in-law serving in the military!
Where did you find this faux eucalyptus exactly? I love how yours looks so realistic I contemplated getting real eucalyptus for my table setting. But if I can find this one that would be great!
Hi! The eucalyptus here is from Pottery Barn. It’s actually a garland of eacalyptus with a twig base. I’m not sure if they still carry it now though.
