Decorating a Dessert Table for Thanksgiving
A dessert area can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like to round out your Thanksgiving meal. But it always fun to decorate!
First, you need a centerpiece or other Thanksgiving decor to place on and around the table. You can go for store-bought options or make one yourself with the following materials: pine cones, berries in your color of choice (red and green are classic), branches from trees on your property, pumpkins filled with candy corn—the list goes on!
These can be place in glass jars and containers, or placed around the table in between the dessert plates.
You could also create a background for the table, including hanging streamers, using a thanksgiving themed or fall colored tablecloth as a backdrop, or use frames with fall phrases as table decor.
More thanksgiving dessert table decor ideas:
- Fill glass or mason jars with candy corn, gumdrops and other small candies.
- -Use ribbon to tie in your color scheme for the tablecloth backdrop.
- -Put pictures of family in fall themed frames around the centerpiece for a personal touch.
