1. rich fall wine red and mustard yellow- With Love From Kat

Nothing screams the coziest part of fall that’s creeping into winter than a deep, wine red. And paired with the rich mustard yellow and lush greenery, it’s the perfect tablescape if you’re going for dramatic and vibrant.

Or if you want your wine to match your decor.

2. black, gold + natural – patterns and prosecco

Black and gold will never go out of style. The black brings the gothic vibes, and gold balances it out with a luxurious twist.

What really makes this such a good, unique thanksgiving tablescape is that it also blends in some natural, fall elements.

3. french-inspired romance – coco kelley

If you’re into more of a Parisian, vintage look, you may want to take a look at this one.

The aged cream linens, the neutral color palette, and the wild yet romantic floral arrangement is the perfect combination if you want to create that intimate and romantic vibe.

4. peach + pink glam – The Pink Dream

How could you sit at this table and not immediately feel like a princess?

If you want to go all out on the girl and glam vibe, there’s not a better color combo than peach, pink, and gold. Throw in some pink and peach pumpkins and gold mercury glass candles, and you’re all set.

5. whimsical pumpkins – Darling Down South

If you loved the ideas of using pastel pumpkins as a centerpiece from the last suggestion, but aren’t quite sure about the pink girliness, here’s another great option.

This has a bit more of a natural vibe to it, but still has a really fun and unique look.

6. elegant rustic – Joyfully Growing

These tree stump centerpieces immediately got my attention. This is perfect if you want that rustic look without sacrificing any formality.

Bring in some natural elements from the outside, like mini pumpkins, pine cones, and eucalyptus leaves for a really great rustic, unique Thanksgiving tablescape.

7. pastel with pops of harvest hues – Domino

I don’t want to be biased, but this may be my favorite tablescape. The pops of fuchsia are really eye catching and such a refreshing change for a unique Thanksgiving tablescape.

I love the graphic pattern on the plates, the gold silverware, and the colorful centerpiece made of edible items.

8. dapper dressed animals – Between Naps on the Porch

This is just fucking adorable. You could either do this as a cute theme for the kid’s table – or if you’re willing to have some fun, do it for the “adult” table, too.

The plates are truly the star of the show here. But the burnt tan pampas grass is another great contender.

9. wicked, thrifted tablescape – Jungalow

Okay so this is technically a Halloween tablescape. But take out a few of the creepy details – like the spiders – and you’re left with a stunningly unique thanksgiving tablescape.

It’s dark, it’s moody, and I guarantee that none of your guests will have seen a thanksgiving spread quite like this.

10. enchanted autumn – The White Buffalo Styling Co.

Here come those tree stump accessories again. I’m obsessed with the fact that they’re used as chargers here for a really simple, easy way to elevate the place setting.

The green drink goblets, pastel pumpkins, and the tree stump candle holders really seal the deal on the enchanted forest vibe of this table setting.

11. neutral and low key – Bless’er House

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not huge on the more country side of design. But this understated design may make me make an exception.

This seems like a perfect option if you’re having a chill family dinner at home but still want to make sure it looks nice. The plaid tablecloth keeps it casual and cozy, while the formal place setting and eucalyptus spread give it a little extra oomph.

12. traditional yet laid back – Rooms for Rent Blog

The very first thing that I noticed from this tablescape was the casually flowing white linen runner. I love the texture and casualness that this adds to the table.

Everything from the amber water goblets and bottles used as vases, to the bright greenery, to the thin wooden chargers and copper silverware is incredible.

13. modern vintage – The College Housewife

This is #13 on the list, but it has nothing to do with where this ranks on my favorite unique thanksgiving tablescapes.

Vibrant and beautiful are the first words to come to mind when I look at this picture. But I may be a little biased because orange is my favorite color.

The orange tablecloth is definitely the biggest statement here, but the centerpiece of orange and red fruits is just so damn creative and unique. I’m a huge fan of using compostable items in a centerpiece.

I also love how maximalist this tablescape is. It gives me such Alice in Wonderland teaparty in the woods vibes.
