If you’re anything like me, you get to this point in the season and you start to wonder, how should I decorate for our Thanksgiving celebration this year? Without further ado, here are my five ideas for a rustic Thanksgiving celebration!

Set a Rustic Thanksgiving Table

This particular rustic Thanksgiving tablescape has some of my favorite elements— rustic wood, glittering mercury glass, and lovely greens. If you’re not doing things buffet style (which we commonly do) you can make a few simple swaps by removing the pumpkins and putting bowls of food on the pedestals instead.

A Portable Rustic Thanksgiving Table Setting

I kept this rustic Thanksgiving table setting very simple with a metal charger, versatile white beaded plates, and silverware wrapped in a hemstitch napkin with my favorite ribbon. 

Set Up a Thanksgiving Apple Cider Bar on the Buffet

The buffet was dressed up with some apple cider and a small rustic Thanksgiving decor vignette for the occasion. I kept it simple with just basic mugs of cider and a pitcher, but you could also level up your apple cider with mulling spices, cinnamon sticks, and different flavors.

Decorate a “Thankful” Rustic Chalkboard

I tried my hand at chalkboard art for the first time for this celebration. There’s some room for improvement, but it wasn’t anywhere near as intimidating or time-consuming as I had built it up to be. You could also leave space for people to write what they’re thankful for.

Have Fun with a Nature-Inspired Rustic Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I’m loving the effect of the many wooden candle holders and different sizes and tiers of white pumpkins. For greenery, seeded eucalyptus is a classic choice and can be picked up inexpensively at Trader Joe’s and many other grocery stores.

I hope these ideas inspire you to enjoy a really magical Thanksgiving gathering filled with laughter and delicious food with your favorite people. Tap the link below to read more and make sure to follow along on Instagram @ninahendrickhome!
