Literal vs. abstract
Thanksgiving table decor tends to fall into two categories: literal and abstract. Pieces with a literal style incorporate overt seasonal designs like turkeys, pumpkins and cornucopia. They’re in typical Thanksgiving colors. The look is sometimes kitschy. Abstract-table decor, on the other hand, is less obvious. It might incorporate seasonal elements but in a more refined and artistic way. Colors might include blues, creams and silvers.
Thanksgiving table decor cost

How much Thanksgiving table decor is too much?
A. The answer to this question is somewhat subjective, but there are general rules you can follow. Practicality dictates leaving enough room to comfortably lay table settings and being able to see other diners’ faces over the decor. In terms of aesthetics, the top of the table should never look cluttered or busy. The place settings, serving dishes, glasses and decor should all have room to breathe, so to speak.
