Having meals outside is fantastic as it’s not just the food itself, it’s also blending with nature and enjoying the fresh air and sun. Outdoor Thanksgiving Dinner – What Can Be Better? If the climate and weather allow you – that’s the best idea I think. The trees, bushes and grass can serve as decorations and then add pumpkins, candles in glass candle holders and some other decorations depending on the style chosen. For a rustic style, add vegetables, fruits, leaves, and wooden slices. For glamorous style, choose gilded pumpkins and candle holders. Checkered blankets and fur pillows make every table setting more cozy and the food warmer.
First, choose a color scheme for your Thanksgiving table. There are tons of ideas for you to try. First of all, you can choose a traditional color scheme of orange, brown, beige, and gray. Second, you can try something neutral like off-white, gray, beige, brown, brown, and creamy. Third, you can opt for a bold table landscape with purple, burgundy, orange, rust or red. And of course, non-traditional color schemes are welcome – blue, green, metallic, and even black and white.
Cover the table with a tablecloth or table runner – it can be plaid in the colors of your scheme, neutral and made of burlap, made of lace for a vintage table landscape or bold in the colors you choose. The napkins should somehow be coordinated, they can be made of the same fabric or at least be available in matching colors and patterns.
Flowers and greenery
Flowers and greens add a fresh and modern look to your table landscape, and there are many ways to incorporate them – a green table runner, bright floral centerpiece, green centerpiece, and many other decorations. You can also choose an autumn leaf arrangement as the centerpiece.
Now stick to the decor itself, and the first thing you should do is give the table a real autumn and Thanksgiving feel, and only pumpkins can do that. Imitation pumpkins give the table a vintage feel, natural ones give the table a modern touch. Go for moss, antlers, pine cones, fruits, vegetables as natural decorations – table runners or centerpieces or both. Finish the table with cool plates, copper mugs, colored glasses and other things that go with your table landscape.
