Sometimes setting the Thanksgiving table seems more difficult than preparing the meal, we all want our holiday tables to make a lasting impression on our guests. We hope that our tips will make everyone feel extra special. Cheers, and here’s wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
SET THE MOOD
Keep it clean and classic, yet warm and inviting. Start with a great foundation of a beautiful wood table. From there layer it on. Linen place mats, chargers, china, silver, glassware, etc. A collective mix of china, silver, and glassware is often times just as beautiful - if not more beautiful than a perfect set, it also helps created that curated look.
Plates and vessels with imperfect edges in earthy tones paired with glistening gold flatware make for the perfect place setting juxtaposition. Don’t overthink it too much, and don’t be afraid to mix your color palette.
Bring the mood down to earth by using a rustic well loved table and set of chairs. A family heirloom possibly? The more it’s been used and loved on the better! Rich tones with a splash of black will instantly punch up the wow factor while still keeping it cool and slightly edgy.
PLAY WITH LEVELS
Tall candlesticks, a low sprawling garland, a focal centerpiece…mix and match several elements for a finished look.
ADD MEANINGFUL MEMENTOS
The most important element in our opinion. If you do nothing else at all be sure to make guest feel extra special with a custom favor or place card. We love these quick and easy ideas.
DON’T FORGET THE LITTLEST GUESTS
The kids settings should be easy and fun. Keep the colors light, bright, and cheery to help create a playful mood. Select materials that are unbreakable or reusable and that can also be recycled. Add games and crafts to keep them entertained!
