Like most of you all we are in full party planning mode over here. From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years and all the other events in between our dining room table is about to get some work. If you are like me I like to buy things that I can use throughout the year. We never registered for fine china when we got married. Having things like that we only use once or twice a year is such a waste of our very minimal storage.
I’m constantly on a mission to find unique pieces that can be used throughout the year. By making a few simple changes to table linens and florals, a whole new tablescape will be created. The Flower Market Charger in black is just this item. As soon as I saw these MacKenzie-Childs pieces I knew I had to have them.
I am totally ok with investing in pieces that will stand the test of time, are versatile, and are unique. This goes for fashion and home decor. Knowing that these chargers will stay on my table throughout the year made this the easiest decision. I’m obsessed with how they coordinate with my table.
Thanksgiving to Christmas Tablescape Ideas
Choose a simple color palette that can transition between the two.
- Black and white are always my base. I incorporate them into every holiday.
- Metallics are also perfect for this too. I typically stick to gold/bronze during the fall and winter as they are warmer and go with color scheme more often. Metallics really help dress things up and can be used in many different ways.
- Greens can transition easily as well as reds paired with orange/yellow.
This is probably the easiest way to transition. Linens are a fun way to add texture to a tablescape. The floral print of the Flower Market Charger allows for so many color combinations to be made easily. The Courtly Check Enamel Napkin Rings are a classic ring that goes with anything.
Greenery and Florals
Thanksgiving and fall are all about wheats, pompous grass, neutral colored palms, chocolate brown bunny tails, eucalyptus and so much more. Utilizing vintage vases in fall colors like mustard, brown, and cream help bring the tablescape to life.
For Christmas I like to use eucalyptus, pine, poinsettia, magnolia leaves, evergreens, holly, pinecones, and cranberries.
- Pumpkins/gourds. My Beaded Harlequin Squashed Pumpkin and Autumn Harvest Pumpkin – Ivory were perfect transitional pieces from Halloween to Thanksgiving. It was so sad when I had to put these away. The textures of both pumpkins really make these standout. I also love to use antlers as part of a fall tablescape for low height
- Christmas trees

Nothing makes a space feel cozier than a candle or 20. These Tartan Dinner Candles are even more beautiful in person with their gold. Beautiful candles in vintage brass candleholders make every tablescape pop.
I’d love to hear how you transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas on your tablescapes.
I was lucky enough to attend a Virtual event with MacKenzie-Childs a few months ago from the safety of my own home. We had a flower arrangement class, a cooking class, and we designed our own custom pie plate. We got to hang out with the people that make MacKenzie-Childs so special. Hearing their excitement for these beautiful pieces and all of the love that goes into them makes me love supporting them even more.
I took what I learned at this virtual event to inspire this tablescape. The importance of pattern mixing, lighting, music, and different textures to pull together a room. MacKenzie-Childs made this easy with their selection and quality. These aren’t pieces you want put away. They design pieces that double as art and remain a focal point of the room.
