For the past several years, my husband Chris and I hosted Thanksgiving in our tiny dining room. We learned that the key is to be prepared. We planned ahead, and we divided tasks. Chris was a natural in the kitchen, and I clumsily muddled through as his sous chef.
But my favorite part of preparing was planning the table decor. So today I’m sharing my blue and white table from last year’s Thanksgiving dinner.
Denim for a Thanksgiving tablecloth? Why not. Last year, I became obsessed with this denim fabric. The pattern reminded me of a block print fabric from India.
I got some white muslin to make napkins and some white and blue ribbon to continue the theme.
We all know that denim jeans can go anywhere. It’s all how you put the look together. And the same is true for a denim tablecloth. I wanted a look for my table that was the equivalent of wearing jeans with heels and a tailored white blouse – elegant and classic.
A classic outfit deserves minimal but well-chosen accessories:
Gold painted leaves.
Blue and white serving pieces.
Crystal and understated floral arrangements.
Thanksgiving table decor can be very elaborate – but that never works for my tiny table. It just means moving more things off the table to make way for the feast.
Small Table Solutions For Holiday Dinners
Last year, I published this post that shared some tricks and tips for hosting holiday dinners on a small table. That post also shared a few of my previous Thanksgiving table looks.
This year we will be dining in style in this gorgeous dining room. Wherever your Thanksgiving takes you, I hope you have a wonderful one!
