Fall is upon us, the holidays are soon here, and so is gathering with our loved ones again! Today I’m sharing an earthy yet elegant, rustic Thanksgiving table that you can create in minutes and that’s easy on your wallet. I always love sharing ideas that help you create beautiful spaces that are your very own, fun DIY projects, room makeovers and beautiful tablescapes to entertain friends and family.

It feels so good to open our homes to the people we love the most, and what I love about this rustic Thanksgiving table, is that you can pull off this look for any fall occasion.

This table was so fun to put together, I always love to find creative ways to entertain that are affordable and also easy. I’m thrilled I found everything I needed from Walmart to help me achieve my vision!

With such a fast-paced time in our lives, it’s nice to slow down and take the time to create a home that’s beautiful and memorable, especially when we share it with others. Making things simple is so important to me as well.

The focus on this rustic table is for Thanksgiving, but you can surely use this look throughout the fall season for any special occasion…

A table to gather around, laugh together and connect again with one another, is something I’m very grateful for, especially when it’s beautiful, simple to create, and also has great value.

I wanted to keep my rustic Thanksgiving table affordable without overspending, and everything I found fromWalmart allowed me to do just that.

I created this look with a rustic, natural-inspired theme in mind, a look back to simple things, that’s also warm, welcoming and earthy, yet still has an elegant feel I always strive for.

I was so happy I was able to find everything in one place! From the rustic wood candleholders and dried wheat bundle, to the simple striped napkins and pared back blue dishes, I found it all at Walmart, and love it all.

I even found the cutest block print throw pillows to add a layer of warmth on our settee.

I also used fresh pears and figs to build my centerpiece, real white pumpkins in the bowls for an extra nod to the fall season – you can absolutely use faux for both – and a folded throw blanket I already had, as my table runner.

Rustic, earthy, elegant, affordable.



I wanted a centerpiece that would speak to nature and the abundance of the fall season, and that would also create warmth and that sense of earthiness and elegance I was after.

Using this simple dried wheat bundle tied with an elegant ribbon was the perfect starting point for this look.

These gorgeous wood candleholders paired with my vintage brass candleholders flanking the wheat bundle create symmetry, while layered fresh pears and figs with a few fall leaves tucked in at the ends, speaks to the harvest.

A beautiful, rustic loaf of bread is so pretty set right on the table alongside the centerpiece as well.

I love how it beckons you to come and sit and gather together!

My table runner is a simple folded throw blanket – which is an easy and fun way to layer in warmth and texture.

All of these things make creating this fall table so simple, and all work so beautifully together.


Our beautiful and earthy dinnerware is the perfect compliment to my centerpiece, and I love its simple forms.

The soft blue is so beautiful too!

The elegant, ivory and blue striped napkins are the perfect color to match my dishes, and they’re made from sustainable materials, which I absolutely love.

Topped off with cute white pumpkins and layered with simple gold charger plates and flatware to complete my rustic, earthy, yet elegant look.


Our settee is always a favorite place to sit, and I love to bring a sense of coziness and warmth here. Anyone who sits here loves how comfortable and relaxing it is to dine in this spot!

These adorable block print pillows add visual and textural interest with their embroidery, and I just fell in love with the eclectic feel they add.

They create the perfect backdrop for lingering after a meal with family and friends.

Styling all of our gorgeous new pieces from Walmart has helped me create the perfect space to gather with our loved ones, and they set a stunning rustic Thanksgiving table, or fall table for any affair. I love the earthy, welcoming ambience I was able to create in our dining room, all at fabulous, affordable prices. I hope you’re inspired to create your own rustic fall table this season! xo

    Thank you so much Sally! It was such an easy table to pull together and I totally agree about the ribbon detail – it elevates the wheat so much! The pillows always stay! Unless someone wants to remove it, then they toss it on the floor!

  10. Very beautiful tablescape. I love the wheat bundle with the ribbon. I usually don’t care for wheat bundles but by adding an elegant ribbon it makes it much more pleasing to me. This is such a doable tablescape yet elegant. Thank you for sharing this great idea. I do have a question- do you leave all the pillows in the dining chairs during a meal or remove them prior to sitting down? Thanks again. Sally
