Thanksgiving day can be daunting. There is food to prepare, people to greet, and decorations to make. When you start working on your table decor, why not try something new? Step out of the box this year and leave those typical turkey decorations behind. This year, AllFreeHolidayCrafts will help you save your guests from the same old, tired turkey decor. With leafy table runners, creative place cards, and decorative napkins each place setting will be a work of art. You can also create things like these Give Thanks Jars with recycled jars, or everyone’s favorite: mason jars. They make a great table centerpiece and will complement the rest of your table decor.
Table Runner Patterns
These table runners will make you wish that you had these decorating ideas last year. I can already hear the “oohs” and “aahs” as everyone gathers around your dining room table. These Thanksgiving table runners are a great alternative to your regular table decor because they bring a fall feel. Your home will be warmed by these fun leaf patterns. The “Faux Leather Leaves” table runner is a personal favorite of mine because of the textured look it brings to the table.

DIY Napkins and Napkin Rings
No table is complete without napkins, and no napkin is complete without a napkin ring. For this Thanksgiving, dress up your usual napkins with these fall crafts. The Burst of Autumn Napkin Rings are a pretty accent to your already decked-out table. I promise that the preserved leaves on these napkin rings will outshine any turkey-themed table decor. Continue decorating with what looks like a designer napkin, the Fall Dinner Napkins and the Decorative Napkin Rings will accent theme perfectly.
Your table is nearly complete with all of these fall decorations. Now you are merely missing place cards or tags. You can forget the typical holiday decor with these contemporary Pine Cone Flowers. The Pine Cone Flowers serve as a great stand for your place cards. Place them in the center of each person’s plate for a cute fall accent. If you prefer the more traditional, these Custom Chalkboard Place Tags are a great, but still unique, option. The kids will love making these chalkboard tags with you. The fun doesn’t end here. You can also combine your place card with a gift bag. The Thanksgiving Place Card and Favor Bags are an affordable option. I know my guests love this little something extra on the table.
