Rustic Natural Thanksgiving Tablescape with muted orange and green pumpkins, wood earthy elements, and silver eucalyptus branches.
Ever since I purchased my first house several years ago, I have always been excited to host a Holiday. I love getting friends and family together, I love cooking and pairing recipes for the perfect menu, and I absolutely love decorating! This year I have the opportunity to host our family’s Thanksgiving, and the first thing I thought of, was, of course, the decor.
So I created 2 Thanksgiving Tablescape versions this year. The first that I am showing you today is my Modern Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape Version. (Stay tuned for the Muted Elegance Version.)

I started by placing this large soft apricot pumpkin in the center of my Dining Table. It took me a while to finally find those unique pretty decorative pumpkins this year. I finally found these real ones at my local Walmart. I then placed the two green pumpkins which are also real on either side.
In order to preserve them for use indoors (They have lasted from a week and a half before Halloween until now, and they are showing no signs of rot.) I soaked them in my utility sink with a few tablespoons of bleach. Then I scrubbed off all of the dirt on the exterior of each pumpkin. Finally, I just dried them thoroughly with a towel and they have looked amazing ever since.
Next I used these beige resin pumpkins on either side, and a white pumpkin to fill out this look.
I placed these flocked eucalyptus stems between the pumpkins and then added my candles! I love the mix of rustic turned wood pillar candlesticks and crystal taper candlesticks. I filled them with gold taper candles left over from my Halloween Tablescape.
I’ve always loved special occasions when you get to get out the fabric napkins and set the table. I picked these plaid napkins up at a local store (The Ashley House for you local readers.) or you can get them online here. (They are called slate but are definitely brown not gray.)
And as with many of my tablescapes lately, I’ve used my disposable rose gold flatware. It’s just so beautiful and goes with so many different looks! (I used them in my Halloween Tablescape also).
I kept it simple and just used a rectangular fold on the napkins since so much of the rest of the tablescape was simple and it looked best with these simple white dishes.
This cute mini wreath in the background becomes the centerpiece of my “Muted Elegance Thanksgiving Tablescape” you can see here on the blog in a few days.
For the coordinating mantle, I wanted to keep the rustic feel and use more greenery and wood. I used this boxwood wreath on black and white ribbon flanked by two wood lanterns on either end.
This Thankful sign I made a few years ago and I still love it. I put it out every year between Halloween and Christmas. You can recreate the look by using the same printable from my Free Resources page.
