Gold and White Thanksgiving Tablescape

Sharing is caring!


While eating the meal is my favorite part of Thanksgiving, I do look forward to designing a new tablescape each year. This year I put together a Gold and White Thanksgiving Tablescape. The place settings and decor was all either white or gold and the florals provided additional pops of color.

I mixed and matched items from three of my favorite stores: West Elm, World Market, and Target. The giant gold vase is actually a candle holder from Target. The gold chargers and wine glasses are both from World Market. The napkins and table runner came from West Elm.


The gold chargers were only $2.99 and they dress up the place settings. They are made of lacquer, so they are lightweight and won’t chip.


I never have enough trivets, and they can be surprisingly expensive. I happened to stumble across slices of wood in the craft section at Target, and they are only $4.99 each. They gave the table a rustic look and functioned perfectly as trivets. My mom is having my father make some wooden trivets using wood from a tree in the yard he had to chop down. (It’s funny being a city dweller and buying things like slices of wood).


I absolutely loved this year’s floral arrangement. I mixed white ornament kale and orange roses with thistle, sage, some small white flowers, and some leafy filler flowers. I am not the biggest fan of roses, but the orange roses provided the perfect burst of fall color, and a touch of formality.


Instead of making traditional place cards, I tied some sage and greens together with a gift tag. It would be fun to do this with a mix of herbs that dinner guests can take home and use.


While I obviously plan and photograph these Thanksgiving recipes and tablescape well before the actual holiday, I do transport most of the Tablescape elements, along with fresh florals, with me to Maine for my family’s Thanksgiving celebration.
