Vintage turkey inspired outdoor Thanksgiving tablescape

Updated: Nov 22, 2020

Cue the turkey! One of the most special elements of setting a holiday table is using favorite passed down family decor to channel the traditional spirit of Thanksgiving. For some vintage tablescape inspiration, I used these gorgeous turkey candles that were my grandmother's and her antique turkey platter for an extra festive touch.


When setting your table, I encourage you to incorporate family items or vintage decor to create a special display to enjoy a holiday surrounded by loved ones. Start by placing wheat grass on the center of the table. From there, select a focal point, such as a cornucopia with fresh flowers where you then can weave other elements around it including candles and pumpkins. Also make sure it isn't symmetrical on either side, you want a balanced table but one that looks unique.


Even though Thanksgiving will look different this year, creating a meaningful table will help make it feel even more wonderful and special. It's also important to celebrate the little moments with your immediate family or roommates.
