Follow these 5 steps to create a gorgeous Thanksgiving Table. Guaranteed to impress your guests!

  1. Determine your theme and color palette ahead of time.

  2. Determine your foundation pieces: (a) Will you be using a tablecloth, placemats, chargers, or a combination of these?; (b) Fine China or casual dinnerware?; (c) Glassware – beverage goblet, wine goblet, champage flute, or all the above?; (d) Napkins with decorative napkin rings or without?

  3. And of course, no table is complete without a beautiful centerpiece. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish, but scale, depth, and height matter here too! Vary the heights and sizes of items to add interests, but pay careful attention to height. The goal is create something visually appealing that doesn’t obstruct your guests view across the table, thus making conversation easy.

  4. Purchase needed items well ahead of the big day, and do a trial run.

  5. Set the table a few days ahead of the festivities, and that’ll be one thing you can check off of that to-do-list!

Thanks again for dropping by! I hope you and your family have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
