Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas And Themes
Selecting a theme at the beginning of your party planning will set the tone for your event and streamline the rest of your planning. The theme you pick will decide what direction your Thanksgiving dinner will take and will be present throughout your menu, decorations, and party games. When it comes to picking out a theme, it's best to make sure that whatever you select suits the occasion. You'll want to make it personal and an easy place to start is by considering various color schemes.
Rustic Gathering: Bring the beauty of the outdoors in with neutral colors for a rustic Thanksgiving gathering. For this theme, focus on muted hues like khaki, sand, off-white and burnt orange while selecting your farmhouse decor. Utilize natural wood on the dining table and incorporate pinecones or birch wood to give your party a natural feel. Fall leaves make for great hanging items or you can even just lay them around your dining table or other areas of your event. A burlap table runner along with creamy florals make for the perfect centerpiece. Think white accents and greenery for this rustic Thanksgiving theme.
Sophisticated Bohemian: Create a flashy Thanksgiving event with a bold mix of black and gold items. Incorporate standout patterns or textures like polka dots, marble or flannel to make this theme pop. Script thank you quotes on each of the place cards to elevate the table settings. Touches of bohemian can be added with greenery centerpieces, feathers, and cream-colored pumpkins. Utilize succulents in gold-rimmed planters around your party for an on-trend feel with hints of refinement.
Harvest Party: Use bright orange pumpkins as inspiration for your harvest party-themed Thanksgiving. In fact, you can even use them as backyard decor pieces. For this theme think warm hues like golden yellows, crimson colors, and bright pumpkin orange. Incorporate scarecrows and hay bales to bring your harvest theme to life. Hanging autumn leaves will feature all of the colors you're looking for and will also make for a great backdrop for photos. Incorporate thank you messages and sayings on custom canvas prints to hang around your home as a great reminder of what Thanksgiving is all about.
One of the most enjoyable parts of planning a party is picking out the decorations. Set the fall scene with some inspiring Thanksgiving decoration ideas for not only the table and dining room, but backyard decor too. From fall foliage and table place cards to centerpieces and front door decor, there are endless ideas for styling a Thanksgiving party that will fit any theme you have in mind.
Your dining room and table will be the star of the show, but you won't want the other areas of your venue or home to feel less festive. Grab some supplies and create handmade decor pieces that will have your guest raving about how beautiful your setup was.
