As you prepare for Thanksgiving weekend, we have put together some quick tips to help you easily decorate and set your Thanksgiving table, so you can eat, drink and be thankful in style!
Choose the Right Table: Make sure your table can accommodate all your guests. Choose an extendable dining tables like the Chateau Dining Table that easily expands so you can accommodate more guests at your feast.
Use Table Linens: Set the tone and theme of your table with linens. Choose something with flare like the Dinner Party Napkin Set that will help keep the conversation flowing. Or choose placemats, napkins, and table runners in neutral tones, adding your own touch with twine or velvet ribbon.
Layer Dinnerware: Mix and match patterns and colours to keep thinks dynamic, like the Bandoas Collection with a pop of colour and pattern from the Adelle Collection. Try adding in a personal touch with household items to finish off the look, like placing a pear (or persimmon) in the centre of the top plate.
Have Enough Glasses: Ensure you have enough glasses for all your guests, including water, wine, and a coffee/tea mug. Personalize your guests glasses with DIY drink cards using household items like twine, alphabet beads, leaves or even chalk paint.
Stylize Your Flatware: There are so many fun and easy ways to style flatware, try using ribbon, twine, or use a mason jar as a cutlery holder.
DIY Centrepieces: Use what you have! There are plenty of options in your backyard, your pantry, or your fridge to pair with décor pieces you may already have. Try placing dried corn kernels in a Thema Vase with a pillar candle, a wooden Manao Salad Bowl filled with votive candles and acorns, or a Dumont Copper Lantern paired with dried leaves from your yard.
Choose a Theme: Add wood elements to stylize your table setting and add a warm cozy feeling, or add autumn tones to play up the fall feeling of your table setting.
