Holiday Special: Black & White Thanksgiving Decor

Hey all! It’s Kristi from KristiMurphy.com! I don’t know about you, but I’m not crazy about the earthy colors I usually see in Thanksgiving décor.  Brown and burnt orange have never been on my favorite color list, so this year I decided I’m going to do a little something different. Black and white is a big trend in the fashion world right now, so I thought, “Why not carry this trend into my Thanksgiving decor?” Hence the idea behind today’s post: a Black + White Thanksgiving! Take a peek below to see how I incorporated this color scheme into my Thanksgiving table settings…Enjoy!

Since Thanksgiving is all about the food, I like to keep the table décor simple. Don’t worry about running all over town to create the most elaborate centerpiece possible. Instead, just use some black and white items you’ve got laying around the house. I grabbed a vase, a plant, some antler candlestick holders, an adorable owl candle right off my own bookshelves, and included some leftover Halloween pumpkins as well.

Now that you’ve got your centerpiece squared away, be sure to incorporate some fun ideas to take your table setting to the next level. Drape your table in chalkboard cloth and write “I’m Thankful For ______” next to each guest’s place setting. Your family and friends can write what they are most thankful for this year. It’s a great conversation starter! The chalkboard cloth also allows you to forgo place cards. Simply write your guests’ names above their place settings.
