With Turkey day only two days away, you may have spent all your time and energy on the menu and forgotten about the other half of the meal: Thanksgiving table decorations.
Fear not, host or hostess. A stunning table is simple. Remember what you learned in school: this is a celebration of what we have, not what we don't have. So take a look around. Plants in the garden? Leaves? Branches? Even desert flora works.
Pumpkins are a must for the holiday. For an extra modern look, avoid colored squash and go for a neutral white or painted metallic pumpkin instead.
Don't have a stunning vase for the center of the table. Mix and match. A line-up of mismatched vases, milk bottles and mason jars can be absolutely beautiful, as pictured both below and at the top of this post.
Need a few new decorative elements? Start with a cluster of Edison bulbs or other contemporary island pendant light styles. Add a mix of rustic and modern decor and you're set for the holiday table and all year round.
Europa 8 Light Adjustable Bronze Swag Chandelier, Nambe Swoop Cheese Board with Knife, Yellow Set of 4 Stacking Chairs, Dark Smoke Glass Bottle Vase, Titus Rusty Elm Zuo Dining Table, Glacier Glass White Resin Small Vase
Remember however, you don't need to break the bank on new holiday decor. Thanksgiving is about giving out thanks, not your entire paycheck.

Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
