I like to keep it as simple as possible whether I am hosting 2 of 20. With this colorfully elegant Thanksgiving tablescape design for two, you can take the pressure off yourself and enjoy the holiday, stress-free with your favorite +1!


Planning a Colorfully Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape Design for Two to is easier than you think. Try these helpful tips to make your Thanksgiving tablescape memorable.

Rent what you don’t own!

Renting tablescape items is more cost effective and easy than trying to source all the different items from department stores before the holiday. Who has that kind of time?! MTB Rentals is an easy, one-stop shop for all your holiday rental needs whether you are cooking for 2 of 20!


Mix and Match!

If you want to watch your cost, think about adding only a few luxury items to your Thanksgiving tablescape like a velvet linen tablecloth/napkins, colored wine goblets or glass charger plates. Items like white plates, flatware, and water glasses are probably already things you have in your kitchen cabinets and can supplement in as needed.


Add some Flair!

Printing menus and place cards that coordinate with your Thanksgiving tablescape design is an added touch of hospitality that feels luxurious and inviting. These colorful paper goods designed by Brand Haus Labs mimicked the Spanish tile design in the MTB Rental plates. 



Be Creative!

My two favorite ways to display place cards are either with small stands (Amazon Prime!) for a more elegant look or in the tongs of a fork for a more casual look. Remember, gold and silver are both metallic neutrals and can be mixed.


Think Outside the Box!

When it comes to a centerpiece, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Los Angeles Floral Couture designed this fresh kale and a white pumpkin centerpiece as opposed to using flowers. You are already at the grocery store picking up your turkey so why not grab some citrus, pine cones, and gourds to add much-needed texture to your Thanksgiving tablescape design?


Adding natural elements like moss, twigs, and pine cones will add a festive holiday touch for not a lot of cost. Plus, stored correctly, these dried items can be saved for the following year.


Whatever you do, don’t forget the candlelight! Everything looks better with mood lighting.
