Ideas for setting your own rustic, modern Thanksgiving table setting with a charming touch of modern elements.
Thanksgiving is upon us! If there is one holiday to set a beautiful table for, it’s Thanksgiving!! This year we’ve added in galvanized metal touches and mixed in some copper too.
I was inspired by a decor piece I saw that used both metals and thought it would look stunning on a fall table setting!
I also wanted to use my beautiful Le Creuset Matte dinnerware in Heather Grey, so I went with a blue, gray and copper color design. Below you’ll find our Sugar and Charm shopping guide for the items for this table setting.
How do you set the table for Thanksgiving?
Before you start decorating your table, you need need to know how to set a proper Thanksgiving table. Check our our How to Set a Table Guide for everything you need to know! Furthermore, see last year’s Thanksgiving table here, still one of my favorites!
Thanksgiving Flower Arrangements
The flower arrangements were made in galvanized buckets, which added to the rustic charm to the table. They’re also really affordable and can be used for so many different things!
Flowers bring the table together. For a cost efficient way of adding flowers, take a walk in your neighborhood and gran fall leaves and sticks to create your own table decor.
Do this a few days prior to Thanksgiving so you don’t have to worry about it the day of!
It’s all in the details…
The Be Thankful napkin rings were perfect for this Thanksgiving table setting. It’s the small details that make the table feel complete and cohesive.
I placed mini apple butters on each table setting. They can be used on biscuits, cornbread or even on the turkey!
I love the look of copper mugs on the table. They’re also perfect for serving Apple Cider Moscow Mules!
Keep the champagne chilled on a bucket of ice. Also, keep it on the table for quick refills! Turkey and champagne are pretty good together!
What is a tablescape?
A tablescape is a beautifully arranged table top with flowers and decor. Tablescapes are created for holidays, events and parties. They usually have centerpieces and special touches to make the table setting memorable.

I love the look of white pumpkins lining the table. You can find them at your local grocery store this time of year. Get ones with cool stems if you see any! It adds more character and texture to the table and it’s an inexpensive Thanksgiving table decoration.
In addition to Champagne, we like to serve a lot of wine at Thanksgiving! To become a wine enthusiast, read our easy and helpful tips for serving wine!
