Get the Look
Set up a comforting spread this year with farmhouse Thanksgiving table decor. This look is polished without being fussy, and calls for relaxed, homespun design. Here’s a look at the products you need to re-create this style.
You can never go wrong with the simplicity of farmhouse white. Crate & Barrel’s dinner plates and salad plates are a sturdy and practical option for your country Thanksgiving menu. You can introduce bold prints and pops of color with accent pieces, leaving the dishes to display a feast you’ve lovingly prepared for loved ones. Learn how to set a table for any kind of occasion.
West Elm has a set of four napkin rings made from slices of real wood. With a contrast of dark and blond wood on each, this rustic design works beautifully with napkins patterned or plain. We love that they also have a slim design, taking up little room while we dive into all the best of this season’s side dishes—like our new fave Maple-Glazed Green Beans.
Save the fancy tablecloths for another day. Your laid-back farmhouse Thanksgiving table calls for simple things like these fiber placemats. Sturdy and wide enough to hold your entire place setting and stemware, these placemats are low maintenance and loveliness combined. Load them up with platefuls of November goodness, like Herb-Glazed Turkey and one of our all-time favorites—Easy Batter Rolls.
It doesn’t get more farmhouse than this ticking striped set of four napkins. The pattern is subtle enough not to steal the show and is a clever pot holder for a steaming pan of Sweet Potatoes au Gratin. It complements a sprig of seasonal greenery perfectly, too. Add an aromatic statement to your country Thanksgiving table with fresh rosemary.
