Feast your eyes on seasonal Turkey Day décor with these ideas for a festive Thanksgiving tablescape and hosting. (This year, we're going all outdoors!)
Feast and give thanks with family – and in elegant style!
When it comes to outdoor entertaining, it’s all about the presentation. Look for quality designs that can comfortably seat all of your guests . . . and opt for soft colors and textures to create a warm and inviting holiday ambiance. Then, light it all up with an outdoor lamp or string lights!
For a successful Thanksgiving celebration you’ll look back on for years to come, you’ll need your loved ones close by, good food – and the proper dining accommodations!
Give guests glowing treatment with candlestick and candle centerpieces over a rustic wood dining set.
While symmetry is key when it comes to creating a balanced and uncluttered tablescape, 100% symmetry all the time can also feel boring and overplayed – so don’t be afraid to incorporate pops of height or texture in an unexpected place or two. On the table above, differences in size, color and texture are celebrated, grouped together to form one show-stopping tablescape.
Set up a drinks station. Outdoors, opt for a wicker
or metal bar cart
(two great materials durable enough to be kept outdoors for long periods of time). Pair it with an outdoor counter set or lounge seating
where guests can enjoy the drinks and light snacks.
Aroma of savory herbs and spices coming from the oven? Keep guests’ stomachs from growling with pre-dinner appetizers – spread out on a bold bar cart!
A hosting spectacular starts with spacious seating; A good bench sets the tone for a feast to remember.
