Black + White Thanksgiving Table For Lauren Conrad

Thanksgiving table set up

I was thrilled to create this black + white Thanksgiving table for the celebrity, Lauren Conrad! I don’t know about you, but I’m not crazy about the earthy colors you usually see in Thanksgiving décor.  Brown and burnt orange have never been on my favorite color list, so I decided I’m going to do a little something different this year. Black + white is a big trend in the fashion world right now, so I thought why not carry this trend into my Thanksgiving decor? Presenting the Black + White Thanksgiving! I’ve got some table setting ideas for you. Hope you like!

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 fabulous centerpiece. Instead just use some black + white items you’ve got laying around the house. I grabbed off my shelves a vase, a plant, some candle antlers, an adorable owl candle (West Elm too), and some leftover Halloween pumpkins (tutorial).

Now that you’ve got your centerpiece squared away, here are a couple of 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 in what they are most thankful for this year. It’s a great conversation starter! The chalkboard cloth also allows you to forgo place cards. Just write your guests’ names above their place settings.
