Thanksgiving Table Runners & Placemats

November 8, 2017

By Tab Byrum

On Monday I shared some beautiful ideas on dining table decorations for Thanksgiving, in that post I talked about having a runner down the center of your table to give a defined area for your centerpiece and decorations. Along with that, you can also use placemats, I love placemats but I know some people don’t care for them, I like that they are a simple way to add a holiday look to your dining room or kitchen table without breaking the bank. Today I’m going to share some great buys from Pier One and Mackenzie-Childs on table runners and placemats that you can use for Thanksgiving and all Fall. Enjoy!!! (above via)

Neutrals are so popular right now and the Beaded Golden Leaves Burlap Table Runner is the perfect base for white pumpkins, gold candlesticks, and ivory candles. 

Faux leaves are always a great way to go, above we have the Faux Maple Leaves Placemat and below is the Faux Maple Leaves Table Runner, a great base for any Fall centerpiece. 

Pier One has a couple of traditionally colored beaded runners, Beaded Foliage Leaves is on the left and the Beaded Autumn Table Runner is on the right. 

The Pumpkin Patch Table Runner has the look of beautiful handwork and casual elegance. 

The Wild Fall Foliage Leave Tablerunner is a timeless way to add Autumn to your table’s decor. 




If you’re going for a more old world and elegant look than the Autumn Lustre Table Runner and Placemats may be what you need. Gold and Burgandy combine with beautiful stitching to create a timeless look. 

The Sunset Table Runner from MC gives you lots of color choices to work with. Gold, Purple, Red, and Black/White Check are just a few of the fun colors this will bring to your table. 

I love the Harvest Placemats from MC, lots of fun and bright colors with a few Courtly Check pumpkins worked in. 

I featured the Pheasant Placemats at the end of Summer, they will definitely bring a fun and traditional vibe to your table. 

I hope you’ve seen something here that might help you set your Holiday table. Check back tomorrow for more great decorating ideas and as always, Enjoy!!!
