This Thanksgiving Table is Mad for Plaid

perfect for any fall dinner

Can you really roll into the holiday season without talking about plaid? This pretty plaid tablescape is sure to make everyone at your thanksgiving table smile – even that uncle that just can’t wait to start complaining about the midterms. Like him, this table is fairly traditional, but the bright colors make it vibrant, fresh and mostly tolerable for even you bohemians out there.

There’s A Pattern Here

Clearly this Thanksgiving table is all about the plaid tablecloth. So, we kept everything else fairly understated. We started with these great Soare Placemats from IKEA. Then added some Staccato Dinner Plates and Marin Quiet Blue Napkins from Crate and Barrel. Finally each place setting was topped with a Threshold Kingsland Dinner Plate from Target and paired with Hearth and Hand Matte Black Flatware.

White on White

Our florals were the only place where we eliminated color, and we think the effect of white on white blooms really gives this table a modern flair. All of these flowers are available in the fall including the Hydrangeas and we picked up most of these at Trader Joe’s – one of our favorite places to snag cheap flowers. We couldn’t help but pick up a few persimmons while we were there too.

Not Perfect is Perfect

We realize that sometimes we come across things like these tablecloths, which ultimately sell out quickly. I mean why wouldn’t they when they are this good and reasonably priced? Don’t be discouraged. Any colorful plaid will achieve the same look and feel. Just focus on the accent color to assemble tone on tone place settings and stick with white flowers. It’s really that easy – so don’t fret. You’ve got this!



P.S. I mentioned you can rent a similar table? So what are you waiting for? We’ve made setting up this tablescape as easy as point and click.
