Well, nothing like waiting until the last minute, but on this Thanksgiving Eve, you may be so exhausted from cooking that you haven’t had a moment to put the table together. We’ve been scouring Pinterest to find some of our favorite Thanksgiving tablescape ideas to share with you.

These tall cylinders full of gourds work well with the long narrow table. They’ve also alternated vases with just a bloom or two in each with candlesticks. No time to forage at the grocery store for gourds? Go grab what’s left of the fall leaves off the ground and use those instead.

Clearly, you’re not going to have enough time to go saw down a tree, drill holes and fill them with tea lights. However, you can find a nice branch or two to run down the center of the table.

Yes, we love this rustic table and mix of glassware, but the best and easiest take-away is the thankful jar. All it requires is a jelly jar or mason jar, a tag and some twine or string. The way the kept the arrangements simple by sticking with sprigs of Eucalyptus. Just beware of how sticky your fingers will get when you handle them!

DwellStudio’s founder, Christiane Lemieux set up this table several years ago, but it’s still one of our all-time favorites. It shows the way you can play with those vases you may have tucked all over the house and no flowers are required!

So simple – Pillars, a few greens, cuties and pinecones. Easy-peasy. If you don’t have a mirror, use a simple runner or a few plain placemats butted together.

Even butcher paper can take on a chic placemat look when you pen a few words and lines down the side.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and wish you safe travels!

O.K., so these table legs from Home Depot are not all that sexy. However, ever since I admired Priscilla Locke’s studio a few weeks ago I have had them on the brain:

from The Locker

My cryptic notes on this picture source say “colombe steven via destoinsp” This means I swiped it from Desire to Inspire, but I’m not sure about the rest. Let me know if you can help me clarify!

My notes here:francesca harris sunset WS. I think I’ve decoded it – photographer name, magazine (Sunset) and WS means “Work Space”!

From Living etc.

Notes here: “cordelia de castellane ws hg” House & Garden?

from Natural Curiosities

from Living etc.

from Nate Berkus

Here are a few cuter cheap versions if you want to try the look out yourself. The yellow one is from Home Depot, and the silver ones are from Lowe’s.
