The Thanksgiving table is one of the most important parts of the holiday. And it’s also one of the most fun. Planning a gorgeous table can be as simple as choosing some Thanksgiving table decor on Amazon. It ranges from runner and napkin patterns to centerpiece ideas. Here are some of our favorite pieces that will help you decorate this year’s Thanksgiving table!
Make sure the colors coordinate
One of the most important things to consider when choosing table decor is how it will complement your dining room. The color scheme you choose should play off of the colors in your tableware, as well as other elements of your home decor. One way to make sure that the colors work together is by using a color wheel.
If you’re not familiar with the concept, here’s how it works. Start by choosing a primary color—red, yellow or blue (or any combination thereof). Then select two other complementary colors. These are shades that are adjacent on the wheel and create an aesthetically pleasing contrast with each other. For example, if you choose red as your primary color then green and orange would be good complementary choices. Blue offers coral and purple as possibilities for its complements. And yellow works nicely with dark green or brown and so forth.
Focus on nature-inspired elements
- Use natural elements like pinecones, leaves, and berries.
- Add natural colors like browns and greens.
- Include natural textures like burlap.
- Incorporate natural shapes (round or oval).
- Use natural materials like wood and metal.
Do a fruit or floral centerpiece
You don’t want to go to all the trouble of decorating your Thanksgiving table, only to find out that you’ve chosen something that is too big, or too small. It’s better to choose a centerpiece that fits your table size and your style. An easy way to make sure your centerpiece is just right is by choosing one that’s in season during the autumn months. For example, if you are using locally grown apples as part of your fruit bowl arrangement, it will be much more realistic looking than something imported from another country.

Consider a mini garland runner
If you’re looking to add colorful decor to your Thanksgiving table, think about a mini garland runner. This is a great way to add color and warmth at the center of the table, or as a centerpiece on its own. It can also be used as a runner down the center of the table if you have several spaces between your place settings.
Being made from natural materials such as cotton and jute, these mini garlands are easy to clean and reusable so that you don’t have any waste after using them for your big day!
Create a napkin pattern that you can replicate
Your choices are endless when it comes to choosing your Thanksgiving table decor. But one thing is for sure: don’t try to be too creative. Instead of spending time doing a lot of research and coming up with the perfect fall-themed tablecloth, just choose something simple and classic that works with your theme and style. If possible, make it an item that can be used again next year so that you won’t have to start from scratch!
If you’re hosting a large group of people this Thanksgiving season, consider using different patterns for each place setting. After all, no one wants to look at their friend’s ugly holiday napkin for hours on end! But keep in mind that certain places may have more than enough room for guests who need more space than others. If that’s the case then simply stick with one design but vary its color scheme instead!

If you’re looking for a way to decorate your Thanksgiving table this year, Amazon has you covered.
