Casual Thanksgiving Tablesape

I love entertaining and creating a festive holiday tablescape. Whether you have a formal dining room or only a kitchen area, you can create casual and simple tablescape with Thanksgiving holiday highlights using florals, autumn branches, and votive candles. I spent only $10 on this creation!


Typically I’ll host dinner in our more formal dining room and I tend to go all out as I love the opportunity to use my fancy china. This year,  we’re traveling to have Thanksgiving dinner with our in laws. They don’t have a formal dining area or a dishwasher, so we like to create a more casual tablescape for the kitchen table – and use paper plates to avoid a gigantic mess of dirty holiday dishes that require hand washing afterwards.


My kids really look forward to the decorating, so I picked up a few items that I’m going to bring with us to enable the kids to get involved in decorating the table at their grandparents house —  just like they would if I was hosting dinner at home.

Since we’re traveling, I want to keep things EASY and FUN.    Sometimes a simple holiday tablescape is the easiest option and it’s all you need to create a festive environment.

I picked up these super inexpensive items at Walmart. The paper products were all only $1.97 per set. Fabulous! Plus, they create an instant Thanksgiving environment for our meal.


This votive and autumn branch collection was under $10 from Walmart’s Better Homes & Garden product collection. It will travel nicely and adds a real Thanksgiving Autumn touch to our table.



It’s packaged beautifully so it also makes a great hostess gift!


Here’s the product displays from in store at Walmart so you can see just how inexpensive it was to create this Casual Thanksgiving Tablescape.




I’ll be bringing along this super cute ceramic Turkey Napkin holder we already own as well to give us a little more “flair” too.

Until it’s time for us to leave for Connecticut, we’re enjoying this seasonal Tablescape on our casual dining table in my Kitchen. A great way to get the kids excited about Thanksgiving!

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when
    you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website
    yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where
    u got this from. kudos
