1o tips on how to host thanksgiving dinner
THIS POST FEATURES IDEAS FOR YOUR 2023 thanksgiving TABLE SET UP
Use a linen tablecloth and or a textured table runner to create an interesting base for your table. From there you can add in your various platters, plates, and items to layer for dimension!
1. STYLE YOUR THANKSGIVING TABLE SET UP WITH TEXTURES
you can create interesT by layering objects of different heights across the table. This is a simple way to make your THANKSGIVING table SET UP attractive without spending a ton on an oversized floral arrangement.
2. LAYER IN HEIGHTS
Create a cozy and warm ambiance by lighting various candles and tapers across your table. I think a good number for a large rectangle table if table space allows, is to use eight tapers in different heights. This alone is all the decor that you need to create an interesting table.
3. LIGHT CANDLES
add soft pillows for extra comfort. This will give your guests a comfortable space to sit in and encourage them to relax, stay, and enjoy good food and food conversation. You can add throws as well across one or two of the chairs for anyone who wants extra cozy warmth.
4. MAKE IT COMFORTABLE
we use one plate for each person whereas I've seen some inspiration that uses a main course plate, a salad plate, and sometimes a bowl. WE ultimately don't have the time of day or energy to go over the top. One simple Thanksgiving table setting is plenty for each guest.
5. KEEP IT FUNCTIONAL
