Many families will be celebrating in a more intimate setting this year, and with that in mind it is the time to be thoughtful with your Thanksgiving Table Setting. Embrace the intimacy of smaller gatherings… more warmth in conversations and making deeper connections with those we love. We all deserve this feeling of the season to uplift our spirits! A thoughtful Thanksgiving table setting is a wonderful backdrop to create a spiritual and meaningful space. Here are some inspirational settings for whatever style you are. Use this as a guide, sprinkle it with your personality, feel the season and make it fabulous!
Modern Table Setting
This tablescape was designed with glamourous tranquility in mind. Each setting has a lovely Orchid, a flower with a long-lasting bloom like the love I have for my guests. The centerpiece of Amethysts adds positive and healing spirituality to the setting and the wood accents remind us to remain grounded in the earth. The table setting is featured in the #ShowMeYourTable charity event currently on social media. Grey Hunt Interiors and Kendall Wilkinson Design teamed up this year to support Feeding America. The community spirit is filling up social media and helping provide hot meals in time for Thanksgiving. Join us on Instagram #showmeyourtable!
Traditional Thanksgiving Table Setting
I love a table settings that includes meaningful pieces reflecting my family history. I mix and match my mother’s green Depression era plates, framed with a white modern white porcelain charger. I mingled them with ornate pressed glass goblets discovered at a boutique in the 1970’s. A table filled with heirlooms tells a story of past dinners. Modern mercury glass votives add a flickering glow of warmth that is always welcoming. A vibrant red damask napkin heralds in the holiday season. The African straw tassel has now became a napkin ring, be creative!
Make it Yours
Chic wine goblets, Silver and gold candlesticks or a rustic basket of gourds and pumpkins all work with Traditional table settings. You do not need expensive florals or Baccarat to create a heartwarming table, but if you have Baccarat crystal, this is the year to embrace it! Break out the silver, crystal, and china!
Cheers to everyone for a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving!
