Creating a Moody and Earthy Thanksgiving Tablescape | Diamonds in the Desert Design

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I'm so excited to spend time with family around the dinner table. It's that time of the year when families and friends come together to celebrate gratitude and create cherished memories. While a lot of the focus is on the delicious food, I also like to pay attention to the table setting. A well-curated Thanksgiving table can set the tone for a memorable evening, and one way to create a stunning table is with a moody and earthy design. In this blog post, we'll explore the items used to create this tablescape and how they can be used throughout the year.

The first item on the list is textured placemats. These add an element of interest to the table while also providing a layer of protection. Textured placemats can be used year-round, anytime your hosting. Wood chargers are another item that can be used for any occasion. I love how they add warmth to the table. They can be mixed and matched with different dinnerware and easily transformed to fit a variety of styles.

Earthy green bowls, classic white plates, and linen napkins are items that work well together and offer a natural and relaxed feel. These items can be used throughout the year, whether you are hosting or just having a casual dinner with your family.

Brass flatware and amber glasses are classic and timeless pieces that add elegance to any table setting. They can be used on their own or mixed and matched with other colors and materials. Metallic candle holders are another item that can be used throughout the year, and they add a cozy and intimate feel to the table. Add in a few small neutral pumpkins throughout the table to highlight the fall season.

Lastly, black vases and fall branches bring a natural feel to the tablescape. You can leave the vase on your table all year long or move throughout your home, just swap out the fall branches for another floral or branch that is seasonally appropriate.

By incorporating moody and earthy elements, you can create a stunning Thanksgiving tablescape that sets the tone for the evening. The best part is that the items used in this design can be used all year long! Just swap out any holiday-specific decor and florals for whatever season you are in.
