Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials

It’s Turkey Time!

Thanksgiving Entertaining Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Thanksgiving is without doubt my favorite holiday — beautiful tables, great food, and none of the stress associated with the winter holidays. This is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones whether they be family or friends. So first things first, if you haven’t yet made your travel arrangements, the time is NOW!

Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor

Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables! In complete disclosure – since we live in San Diego, beautiful weather made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving outdoors.  Simple solar powered patio lights and lots of candles provided enough light even after sunset.  As you can see, we tried to mix elegant with fanciful touches.

Thanksgiving Table Setting  Thanksgiving Floral Centerpieces   Thanksgiving Place Cards

Truthfully, we had a tough time choosing which Thanksgiving design aesthetic to go with since like most of you both sides of our family have their own unique visual tradition.  We wanted a look that would unite both sides yet mimic neither.  Matt’s family has traditionally been involved in the wine and liquor business hence I choose the wine bottle candelabras to add drama and height to the table.  I played with different color candles but ultimately settled on ivory – sometimes, simpler really is better. The mini Wild Turkey place cards were designed mostly to engage our large crowd of twenty-somethings and to serve as ice breakers for a group of cousins who don’t see  one another often enough. I picked up the mini – bottles at BevMo.  I could not find them anywhere online so ended up driving from store to store throughout the county to gather enough.  The centerpieces I fell in love with instantly when I saw them the week before at our local farmer’s market. Thank goodness I ordered them because my original idea of making my own on Thanksgiving morning would have added way too much to an already full day.  As it was I needed to cook 3 turkeys and all the fixings fresh that morning.  At the last minute I ordered a few  water pitchers to add color to the table and to resolve the constantly re-filling water glass issue. I ordered them from Plow & Hearth but just checked and although they still have Harvest Blessing Hand-Painted ceramic dishes, the pitchers are no longer available.  I did find a few of my Harvest Blessings Pitchers still floating around on Amazon. I also added a few small gourds and pumpkins to the table that I picked up at the grocery store.  I did not have enough fine china to set all three tables so I decided to rent the extras.  My fine china pattern is Lenox Autumn which looked beautiful on the table and I supplemented with extra fine china solid ivory dishes. At each place setting I either used my Lenox salad plate or dinner plate so that every place had a touch of color.  In the end, I went with champagne colored satin napkins, sterling silver flatware and sterling silver napkin rings (that was my big splurge) and choose not to use my Waterford Lismore Crystal Stemware in favor of cleaner-lined Riedel glasses.
