With Thanksgiving just over a week away, I figured it was time to share my modern rustic Thanksgiving tablescape with you. Not really sure why I’m calling it modern, other than the central vase has a mid-century vibe to it. Just go with me on this one …

For the centerpiece, I used one of my favorite recent flea market finds. This striped vase was a $6 purchase. You last saw it when I shared some of my favorite olive green decor. I added two faux wheat stems to add the “fall” vibe.
It goes against my normal tablescape rules to only do low centerpieces, but I really wanted to use this vase in a table setting.
Around the vase, I added a four Moscow mule mugs, filled with eucalyptus. The great thing about eucalyptus is that even if it dries out, it’s still pretty.
Small faux candles are inside the birch vases (purchased At Home last year), along with some white pumpkins scattered on the table. Not gonna lie, I’m a little sad to throw all my real pumpkins away soon!
The pilgrim salt and pepper shakers always make an appearance around this time of year. Do you remember the classic Publix commercial? My mom gave me this set and I love using them for Thanksgiving.
I kept the place settings very simple, using my favorite placemats from Crate and Barrel. Noritake Colorwave is the China, in chocolate. I like using various shapes to mix it up a bit and have both square and round dinner plates.
The napkins are World Market. The cute leaf napkin rings are Target Dollar Spot from 2016 (seen last year here). I couldn’t find a leaf version, but I did find some pretty copper napkins rings on Amazon.
I was planning to do a separate post on the DIY burlap table runner, but it was so easy, it seems silly to do a separate post. I purchased two yards of green burlap from Hobby Lobby. I laid it flat on the table so that it went over the ends, and then cut it in half.
From there, I clean up the edges a bit to make them straighter. I folded over the ends into a triangle and gathered on either end. Using jute twine, I tied each end with a bow.
Simple and easy. I like it so much that there is a strong chance you’ll see it again in a few weeks when I share a Christmas tablescape!
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!
