Thanksgiving dinner is my absolute favorite meal of the year. It is so very special because not only does it have every single side dish that I simply adore, but the day signifies the true meaning of family. I pour my heart and soul into that meal and I enjoy every second of it.
The table decorations have to match the meal, right? There’s no paper plates happening on Thanksgiving! This is one of the few times a year that we really go all out! Sparkling grape juice is the absolute highlight for the kids. What a treat!
And for me? I like to add a few simple touches to the table to really take it over the top without putting in too much effort. Colored water glasses are a really easy way for you add a little personality to a place setting. A mock turkey to act as a stand it always is a great conversation piece for the kids! And fresh flowers are what ties it all together. I chose these pieces from ProFlowers and I cannot tell you how happy I am with my selections. They are simply perfect!!
I had an idea of what I wanted in my head and when I went online to see what Thanksgiving pieces ProFlowers had on their site, I was beyond thrilled! I don’t have a HUGE table, so I knew that three pieces would be PERFECT for my table. A larger centerpiece as the focal point of it all and then two smaller anchors on the edge of the table. I think that people don’t dress the sides of their tables enough. Think about the people who are sitting at those corners — they will be able to engage with those flowers for a while. Smell them. Touch them. Enjoy them. Then when it’s time to eat, you can clear it all and use the flowers and decorations for another area of the room.
The colors just scream Thanksgiving don’t they? Burgundy, yellow, orange, green. And I LOVE how ProFlowers also includes berries in the mix.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money creating your table setting either by the way. I love to shop the clearance sections of department stores throughout the year. Most pieces are mix-matches and REALLY CHEAP. But you wouldn’t know that once it’s all put together, right?
Try to stick to a color theme (I’m sort of in the beige arena) and just run with it. Add to your collection a little bit each year and before you know it you will be set! It’s so fun once you start a hunt.
