Good morning friends! It’s the weekend and the perfect time to start the day slow, you deserve it after a long week. Grab a cup of chocolate and read a book, the morning paper or just sit and be with your family. On weekend mornings I like to catch up with all of my blog friends, I enjoy reading and pinning posts to come back to, especially recipes and holiday finds.
Today it is all about Thanksgiving, the day we all gather with family and friends, if we are lucky, to share a meal that takes all day to prepared that is usually consumed in 30 minutes.
Easy Table Setting Ideas for Thanksgiving
- holiday salad plates
- napkin rings, like turkeys, trees, etc.
- natural elements, pinecones, acorns, leaves, wildflowers
At he holidays I love to set a beautiful table and I always start with my everyday white dinner plates and I add pops of holiday cheer and color with the salad plates. In fact I have a collection of salad plates for every occasion, they are easier to store and fun pieces to add to your table, even if it is just a table for two. Using themed plates, napkin rings or napkins are easy and economical not to mention you can use them for multiple gatherings. For instance if you find pumpkin plates you can use them for the whole Fall season not just Thanksgiving, trees or winter botanicals can be used all winter long.
You could add pumpkins to your table setting or woodland birds.
Woodland Bird Plates
Woodland Birds from
Spode also has a beautiful collection of woodland animals. I have a set of the bird plates that we use all season long. Royal Staffordshire offers brown and white turkey plates. You can also find a great selection of season plates at TjMaxx and Marshalls.
Or you could skip the pumpkins and birds and use a beautiful plaid! You know that is right up my alley.
At the end of the day no matter how or what you use to decorate the day is really all about thankfulness and gratitude so enjoy the people you will be spending it with.
I put together some other items you might want to add to your thanksgiving table below, I am particularly for of the “sentimental silver” from Pottery Barn and the brown and white transfer ware plates.
Tell me, how do you decorate your Thanksgiving table? Do you have heirloom china and linen that you use? Do you use vintage found items or your favorite pieces from Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma?
What are your plans for the weekend? I hope they include relaxing, spending time with people you love and maybe a little baking.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends.
