Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather your family and friends around the table. Most of the décor used on dining tables tend to lean towards function. You can still make your table beautiful, yet functional. The first step is to have a gorgeous dining table and chairs. We have so many in stock currently. We have highlighted one of our favorites…the Aberdeen Round Dining Table shown here with the 18” leaf in the table extending the table to 66” long. It’s a gorgeous 48” round table without the leaf.
After choosing your dining table, we recommend considering if you will be using placemats or chargers for each guest. Think about what color scheme you would like to incorporate. Copper, whites and pumpkin colors are very popular for this time of year. A fun way to decorate your table would be to use a tiered cheese plate in the center garnished with edible fruit and herbs as a centerpiece. It’s beautiful, yet functions as a pre-dinner appetizer. You can display a runner down the center of the table. This allows the beauty of your table to show outside of your fall decorations. Another popular DIY centerpiece would be to carve out the inside of pumpkins or gourds and use them as beautiful fall vases for fresh cut or artificial flowers.
Once you have the basic scheme selected, you can coordinate your plate colors and cloth napkins. If you google ‘folding napkin shapes’, you will see a lot of fun options to wow your guests. You can also make or purchase seasonal napkin rings. If you have assigned seating, you can purchase small chalkboard signs that can be decorated and reused every year.
