Bountiful Harvest Thanksgiving Tablescape

I am so happy to be joining 18 other tablescape bloggers this week to share our Thanksgiving Tablescapes.  I chose to style my table as a bountiful harvest Thanksgiving table, with the harvest flowing from a grapevine crafted cornucopia.

When I think about a Thanksgiving tablescape I always think about the harvest and imagine a table piled high with pumpkins and gourds, corn and wheat.  I know this is a fantasy idea, but I wanted to take a cornucopia and have it flow down the length of my table.  I think this fantasy table would be colorful with orange pumpkins, yellow wheat, green gourds and colorful Indian corn.  I decided to keep my table much more neutral than that with shades of white, cream and tan.

I began with with a brown paper runner down the center of my table and added jute placemats for a neutral colored table that had a variety of textures.  I topped these with a white wood grain charger and added a cream dinner plate with a pretty fluted edge.  These are from the Pioneer Woman Collection at Walmart.  I found the white salad plates embossed with pumpkins at Hobby Lobby.  A Harvest themed Thanksgiving TablescapeEach place setting was topped with a little whitewashed pumpkin.  I should use these for place cards, but I really need to work on my hand lettering!  Neutral napkins were rolled and tucked into tiny grapevine wreaths with a little feather added for a bit more detail.  A Harvest themed Tablescape for ThanksgivingA Grapevine cornucopia graces a Thanksgiving TablescapeI fashioned a cornucopia of grapevine by wrapping it around a frame of chicken wire.  The cornucopia sits at the head of my table elevated on a small grapevine wreath to keep it steady.  It is from this cornucopia that my harvest centerpiece flows from.  Thanksgiving tablescape - The bounty of the harvest.

  1. Chloe your table looks so wonderful and I love the grapevine crafted cornucopia. The touches of fall are just gorgeous. Have a wonderful holiday season sweet friend!

  2. I always loved doing cornucopias for Thanksgiving when I was a floral designer, especially the grapevine ones. Something so organic about them. Love your setting here, makes you smell the turkey and pumpkin pie, Thanks, Sandi

  3. A beautiful and bountiful harvest table Chloe! Your cornucopia of grapevine is wonderful! I know how difficult it is to wrangle grapevine into shape 🙂

    1. Oh, thank you Mary, and yes, even with a chicken wire frame inside (that was hard to wrangle too) the cornucopia was a challenge. Maybe next year I will share a post on how to do it, after I am over the trauma!

  4. That cornucopia is really a sure stopper! It is amazing and so glad you got to make it!! Having the food on a separate table with a setting like this is a must have. So very creative!!

  5. Chloe, You home and taste is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for inspiring me with all of your pretty details for Thanksgiving. The cornucopia is amazing! I mean, wow!
    Thanks again for so many beautiful detail ideas that make Thanksgiving even that much better.

  6. Beautiful Chloe! I love your overflowing grapevine cornucopia and all the soft muted colors! I have been looking for jute or water hyacinth mats like those, bought some at Target but returned them because they looked dirty when I got them home, yuk! Did you buy them recently? I think there is nothing more perfect for Thanksgiving than a runner abundant with bounty, fabulous!
