Thanksgiving in Canada is such a special time of the year. It’s the perfect opportunity to stop, reflect on the great things that surround us and be thankful for what we have. Thanksgiving also means amazing food, being around those we love and time for enjoying the Fall season!
Whether you’re a decor enthusiast looking for new ways to decorate your home, or you’re new to this whole thing and just need tips on where to begin, you’re in the right place! We´ve gathered amazing ways to elevate your Thanksgiving dinner and selected items that will take your table to the next level.
Start everything with a beautiful tablecloth. It can be plain, and serve as a base colour to guide the rest of your decor or something more on the extravagant side to work as the protagonist. Keep in mind that it should be in harmony with the other items on your table and allow for everything to be seen.
Don’t be afraid to play with colour, Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to bring all the beautiful fall tones inside the house. Consider incorporating fresh fruit and natural elements into the decor. It is an easy and affordable way to make everything look more elegant and sophisticated. Don’t forget the flowers! There are multiple kinds to choose from and you’re always sure to find options that match your colour palette and aesthetic (plus, who doesn’t love flowers?). Wooden boards are another good way to serve food in a sophisticated way and bring a natural element to your table.
If you want the magic to go beyond the visual, consider including scented candles. Choosing your favourite fall fragrance will elevate the feeling of coziness and enhance the Thanksgiving experience in an invisible way! You can always find beautiful candle holders to coordinate with your decor. If you love the warmth but are not into the open flame thing, consider electric candles!
To compose the table, pick items that contribute to the theme you are going for. Find colours and textures that dialogue, but don’t imitate the remaining elements. Colours should be complementary but also create contrast, and patterns can harmonize well with solid colours.
For example, if you’re using a vivid pattern on your tablecloth, compose the set using solid napkins. If you chose a solid tablecloth, try matching it with patterned placemats or napkins with a print. Another great way to elevate your table set is to use fabric napkins, which allow you to also include some beautiful napkin rings. Finally, adding name tags is a great way to organize your dinner table and add a personalized and caring touch to your gathering.
