I have over 120 AMAZING tabletop designs in my possession after six workshops. And to be honest, I just wanted a fun excuse to round up a few favorites.

I hope these amazing creations from past attendees will inspire your Thanksgiving table! Remember, you don't have to spend a lot of time or money to have a successful and creative tabletop. The most important aspect of any table are the people around it. What's on top is just a fun way to try to love them well!

Why I love it: The contrast of the slate and blush make a dynamic, yet perfectly holiday-worthy, pair.

How to incorporate it: Mix up your normal go-to combinations. Instead of pairing your linen napkins with your white plates, add something with more color and contrast for a pop.

Why I love it: Texture, texture, texture! Between the wood table, the linen, the stone and wicker votives, and the flowers, this arrangement is overflowing with texture!

How to incorporate it: Try to add variety to your setting by infusing various textures at every opportunity. Don't repeat a surface/texture within a place setting. That's a fun challenge for ya!

Why I love it: This arrangement is classic, elegant, and timeless. I love reminiscing on years past over the holidays. A heirloom feel will go a long way in encouraging those conversations!

How to incorporate it: Break out your grandmother's china to give a nod to your family and history.

Why I love it: Effortlessly bring the outdoors in!

How to incorporate it: This time of year there are so many beautiful things happening around us. Consider adding an element of nature to your tabletop!

Why I love it: Moody fall colors that are to die for.

How to incorporate it: You might not be able to paint your dining room black (which believe me, I would if I could), but you can bring in moody elements on your table! I love the idea of charcoal linens, black flatware, and stone chargers.
