Thanksgiving/Christmas Tablescape In November

You can take one look at social media these days and see that Thanksgiving has been swept to the sideline when it comes to decorating. It is still getting celebrated and can arguably be one of the best holidays filled with thankfulness and family/friends. BUT let’s face it, everyone is itching to pull out their Christmas decor as soon as Halloween passes. Christmas is the best time of year and I am on board with decorating early, however,  we still have Thanksgiving festivities ahead to prepare for. So for this reason, I wanted to share my simple Transitional Thanksgiving Tablescape for the Christmas lover!

It really doesn’t get much more simple than this but I really love it! If you have seen in my Fall home tour AND with my Halloween table decor this black and white checkered candle stick holder will look familiar. I have had it up since September. I have dressed it with cobwebs for Halloween but now it is going to keep serving a purpose here through Thanksgiving as well!

It was easy, I switched out our halloween table runner for this pretty white and silver sprinkled with Holly table runner. While it certainly is more a Christmas decor item I think the dark monochrome and green in the centerpiece tone down the Christmas look. To tone it down even more I added two shiny bronze pumpkins to either side. I had black and orange for Halloween but the bronze is much more universal and gives off the Thanksgiving vibe.

To top off the look I added this adorable “Thankful” wooden lettered sign I found at Target (in the bullseye section!) to the front of the candle holder. Being thankful is what the season is all about and I think this adds a simple but perfect nod to the holiday!
