We are wedding planners and designers, so it's easy to say we are a little extra during holidays. We've put together some beautiful tables over the past two years and we want to share our design tips for your Thanksgiving tablescapes! We're talking plates, napkins, goblets, all. the things. But make sure to read to the bottom where we talk about what is the most important thing about your Thanksgiving table!
Fun glasses // See these goblets? We bought four of them at Goodwill for less than $4. Guests will feel extra fancy with unique glasses, but they don't need to come with the extra fancy price tag. They also don't need to match!
Break out the china // We're firm believers that if you have it, USE IT! It might be expensive, but it is a waste of money if they're just sitting in a box in the garage!
Placecards // You can make these as simple or detailed as you would like!
Napkins // Place the napkins at each place setting, get some extra adult points if they're cloth!
Napkin Rings // Don't have official napkin holders? No worries! These are actually leaf steams. If you live somewhere (like us in Montana) where leaves are long gone this time of year, grab some string or ribbon!
Fill that table // Fill it with candles, drinks, florals, and all. the. food. And most importantly, fill it will people!
In the end, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks. Your guests (aka friends and family) will not care about having dinner at an immaculately designed table. It's about who sits around the table! As long as there are some empty bottles scattered on the table, that's a sign of a successful night!
