Thanksgiving Entertaining Made Easy

Gather your guests and let us take care of the rest!

With a delicious menu of starters, mouth-watering sides, and everyone’s favorite turkey teed up, we gather our friends and families to celebrate gratitude and the tremendous blessings of the season. It is a time of traditions, resurrecting old family favorites and forming new ones with your guests as you enjoy a meal together around the table.

Whether you are aiming for a glamourous, elegant, or casual celebration, make sure to elevate your table with pizazz and charm. The many layers of your table will make your celebration more uniquely you. And, after all, your unique placemats, tapered candles, florals, and special centerpieces will remain on the table hours after the turkey has been polished off.

Read our favorite tips below and have fun scheming up your dream holiday dinner party. Happy Thanksgiving!

Glow Getter

The heart of your Thanksgiving celebration – your table, should be warm and welcoming. To achieve that inviting glow, start with a neutral tablecloth—a simple linen spread does the trick—and top it with these beaded Splatter Placemats at each place setting. We love fringed napkins rolled up inside these gold Rope Napkin Rings. Coupled with gilt flatware and simple glassware, your place settings will really shine.

Tasty snacks on golden platters, piles of Baldwin brass candlesticks fitted with slender, tapered candles, and a few vases of vibrant foliage add an extra dose of sophistication to your tabletop.

Harvest Flair

Minimalism more your thing? Keep this year’s table clean and chromatic.

Lay down a solid tablecloth in your neutral of choice, and top it with these circular Reversible Placemats in shocking shades of orange and taupe. Switch sides as you move down the table to help each place setting feel fresh. For a double dose of orange, marry your placemats with sets of our Horn Napkin Rings. The lacquer and horn finish add another touch of modernism to your tablescape. For a metallic punch, try our Zinc and Leather Napkin Rings in taupe instead.

Next time you are at the market, take color and texture cues from nature (while supporting your local farmers), and snap up bouquets of foliage and flowers. Arrange these bouquets and clusters of plums, pomegranates, and citrus around the table for a chic and sustainable centerpiece. Even better, you will have plenty of produce to enjoy after the party’s end. Christmas orange garland, anyone?

Gilt to the Hilt

Elevate your dinner table with the glow of pearl and flashes of gold.
Let our rosy Pearl Placemats add iridescent shine to your tabletop and create your holiday color scheme. A pink-tinted tablecloth is the perfect backdrop for these elegant placemats topped with gold-rimmed china and gilt flatware. For delightful continuity, add an extra special sparkle with coordinating napkin rings. Use our Pearl Napkin Rings in rose or, for an added dose of flair, try our Pearl Cuff Napkin Rings in pearl and gold to tie up marbled napkins.

Make custom place cards for each guest with rosy accents to keep your color scheme consistent. For the centerpiece, we scattered vases of Tiger Lily and platters of charcuterie down the table for a look that is equal parts smart and chic.

Color Wonder

For the color-inclined, we recommend a table that pops with fresh takes on traditional Thanksgiving hues. A brilliantly-colored linen tablecloth and coordinating napkins look stylish paired with our Lacquer Striped Placemats in stunning shades of orange and red. These oval beauties look simply stunning matched with our Horn Napkin Rings in a zingy orange.

Reference the brilliant colors of your place settings with your favorite floral china and bouquets of similarly hued dahlias and foliage.
Top off your table with another palatable layer—deliciously plated desserts and sliced blood oranges will have your table smelling divine when guests arrive.
