Personalize your table with special cards
Personalize your table with DIY place cards that feature guests’ silhouettes instead of their names. To create them, find photos that feature a strong head-and-shoulder outline of your guests. Print the photos onto regular printer paper, cut around their outline then use a black permanent marker to completely color over the photo. Glue the silhouette onto white card stock and place in a small gold mat.
A special space for kids
Setting up a separate kids’ table is as much a Thanksgiving tradition as the turkey itself. It gives younger family members a chance to bond and make memories while the adults enjoy conversation and a peaceful meal nearby. To keep kids occupied, cover the table with brown kraft paper and provide small containers filled with art supplies like crayons, feathers, wood beads and leather cording. Native American headdresses, used here as wearable place markers, can be made ahead of time by the hostess or children who are old enough to use a glue gun.

Count your Blessings
This Thanksgiving let everyone join in the fun of decorating the table while remembering to count their blessings. Craft our chain of thanks in advance then ask guests to write down what they’re thankful for on the paper strips. Run the chain down the length of the table and take turns reading the sentiments aloud during the meal. For an extra dose of fun, leave the strips of paper anonymous, and let everyone guess the author of each one.
Light it up
Scatter votives and taper candles of different heights down the middle of the table to make the entire dining room glow. Purchase inexpensive raw wood holders from a craft store, then apply stain to turn them a rich mahogany. Use unscented candles so fragrances don’t compete with the aromas of the food.
Candles are always a good option
There is nothing more classic and elegant than decorate and use candles at the table setting. You can improve and give a more chic look to the room design of your dining room just with some candles in candlesticks.
Centerpiece with flowers
For your Thanksgiving dinner table setting, you can create a center piece for your dining table with flowers in neutrals to give a new life to the dining room. Be creative and surround the flowers with lovely candles to create a warmer room decoration.
