It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just 10 days away! Where did this year go?! As a wife, mom and grandmother, it’s my job to make sure my family has everything we need to have a nice holiday. So I went to check out Oriental Trading’s site and found some really nice Thanksgiving table ideas and decorations. As an ambassador I was able to get the items for free in exchange for this post, however, I would have purchased these items regardless. I have worked with Oriental Trading since 2015 and this is my very 1st Thanksgiving Table Ideas and Decorations post. Check out our Oriental Trading reviews here!
My granddaughter is adorable, she’s been asking me since Fall started “Grama why do you have your Halloween stuff out?” I explained to her that there was nothing out for Halloween, but it was all FALL items and I was ready for Thanksgiving! LOL She associates Pumpkins with Halloween. Anyway, we went shopping and she made her mommy buy a $1 decorative pumpkin like one I had! LOL Too cute! She said “I have to have one because grama has one”.
OK back to Oriental Trading 🙂 They have some of the prettiest decorations and some of the nicest tableware themes I’ve seen this year! I’ve checked, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Walmart, etc and I have not found anything I liked better!
1st I like to have my table with a table cloth when fall starts through the holidays, and since my thanksgiving table cloth was accidentally sliced (hubby was using a sharp knife on a paper plate and it sliced right through), I opted to get a Chocolate Brown Round Plastic Tablecloth to have on the table until Thanksgiving morning. Then I went for the decorations, and found some beautiful pumpkins!
This Ceramic White Pumpkin is 8″ high pumpkin decoration which features molded leaves and vine accents. Measures 10″ in diameter. A white glaze makes this pretty pumpkin glisten among your fall decorations.
The set of 3 “Carved” Thanksgiving Pumpkin Set pictured below are resin pumpkins with wire vines and embossed metal leaves. They are carved with Thanksgiving phrases and measure 5″ to 6″H.
I love that I can put these pumpkins out in September (I put fall out the first week of September) and keep them out until Thanksgiving. I will definitely carefully pack them away to reuse for years to come.
Now for the tablescape!
Look at the cute kid Thanksgiving Table Ideas. I got the Thanksgiving-themed Paper Tablecloth that my granddaughter can color, this will hopefully keep her occupied with something fun to do while she’s waiting for the meal to be ready. Don’t want a kids tablecloth? That’s OK, they offer thanksgiving color on placemats too!
Now for the adult Thanksgiving Table Ideas! I went simple but to me it’s a bit elegant at the same time. I believe that is what I like most about the tableware. We did some simple orange napkins and the rest is the festive Thanksgiving Turkey Party Supplies which are perfect for adding a certain pizzazz to the dinner table.
For a special Thanksgiving table addition, I couldn’t resist getting the Sweet Fall Silverware Holders too. They are made of paper and an easy way to make help set the table! Each stylish holder comes decorated with a watercolor print of fall leaves and text that reads “Give Thanks”. These are not only perfect for Thanksgiving dinners, you can also use them for anniversary celebrations and wedding receptions too.
Last but not least, we have a set of 3 adorable Golden Turkey centerpieces to dress up the table with. Glittering in fall hues of gold, orange and brown, these high-toned turkeys look great next to other thanksgiving party supplies. Make the larger centerpiece the star of your head table while the smaller centerpieces look great next to beverages or on the kids table. These Thanksgiving decorations are made of cardboard. (3 pcs. per unit) 8″ – 14″ x 5″ – 11″ Simple assembly required. These are so cute I know my granddaughter will want to play with them. LOL That’s not a problem after I get my pictures of the tablescape. 🙂
I have worked with OT for 2 years and I am still amazed to see what Oriental Trading is stocking for different holidays and occasions. They have everything from summer to winter, including wedding decorations! For Thanksgiving, they have tableware, home decor, serving bowls, utensils, candy, a baby costume, crafts, toys, and so much more.
How do you decorate for your home and Thanksgiving table?
I hope I have given you some good ideas for your Thanksgiving table. Be sure to check out Oriental Trading‘s huge variety of items and check the shipping info page to order in time for Thanksgiving delivery!
