4 unique table decor ideas for your Thanksgiving feast


MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – Spice up your Thanksgiving table this year!

Kerri-Lee Mayland, interior designer and founder of the Kerri-Lee Mayland Company, breaks down four ways to make your turkey day feast unique and festive:


“Some people don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, they celebrate ‘Friendsgiving.’ For this one we have paper table cloth, and I have some peel and stick wallpaper. Stick it on there like a place mat. We also repurposed these gourds with some pastels, and voila, Friendsgiving!”

Simple and Savory

“I really wanted to stay true to the whites and greens and so this one really celebrates that. The savory is from maybe something you used in the kitchen. You can use a little bit of rosemary, tie a sprig onto your napkin and it looks really pretty. You can also use monstera leaves or some boxwoods.”

Thrifty Thanksgiving

“Visit your favorite thrift store. I even left price tags on some of this stuff. This whole place setting is $6 counting everything. Put together whatever you find that makes you happy. But have fun with it and really push the envelope.”

Traditional Settings

“Here’s a kind of traditional place setting. Maybe something you’d see at your grandmother’s. Go vintage, borrow a page from her cookbook, and just keep it really traditional. By the way, traditional doesn’t have to be pricey. These plates were also thrifted and were $1 each.”
