Thank you to Thirty-One Gifts for sending me their products to create a beautiful tablescape. Opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
Thanksgiving is a time for bringing family together and giving thanks for one another. It involves eating too much good food and left overs. Your focus should be on your food. Having a beautiful tablescape is nice too, but I like to keep it simple (because we make too much food and space is at a premium).
I will put down a nice simple tablecloth. I use chargers (those fancy plates below the plate) for special occasions and our plates. Silverware and napkins to match the holiday. Put out a candle or 2 to balance the table and save the rest of the space for your food.
decorate in style
I like to give snacks. This keeps the guys and kids (and everyone else) from picking at the food while we are putting it together. I used Thirty-One Gifts Close to Home Tray. I fell in love when I saw this. It has heavy iron handles to carry it from the kitchen to to the table. I was able to put cheese and crackers and some fruit on it for the family to snack on. You can personalize it too! Wouldn’t this be cute to bring with you to your family Thanksgiving (or any gathering really) and give it to the hostess? Don’t forget to get one for yourself too!
I think this turkey little carry-all is a great way to display fruits on your table. Also a great gift for your hostess or friends. I filled this one with fruit. You could put a bottle of wine in there and some chocolates too. Use it on your table to serve the rolls and pass it around. It’s handle makes it perfect for this. Did you notice it has feet?
Whether you are going to someone’s house or decorating, Thirty-One Gifts is able to help you keep it simple and beautiful. Which gift do you want for your table?
