You can find my 5 Tips for Thanksgiving Entertaining in this post, but in this article I’ll show you different entertaining essentials that you can have on hand to make hosting a breeze! Pretty soon you’ll be hosting Thanksgiving like a Food Network star!
Oversized Flax with Lace Dinner Napkins
I have these napkins and I use them ALL the time. They’re oversized, so there’s plenty of room for messy eaters, and they look beautiful on a simple Thanksgiving table.
Handmade Gold Round Mesh Napkin Rings Holder
These napkin rings are so pretty, and they’re handmade! I knew all along they’d make my Thanksgiving Entertaining Essentials (Top 10) list! They remind me of branches, which I think is appropriate for the fall!
Round 13 Inch Plastic Charger Plates with Metallic Finish
I have used my Dollar Store plain, gold and silver chargers for many years and for all different occasions. dinner parties, and get togethers. However; I couldn’t help but share these pretty chargers with a little bling. I just know my friend Dawn would love these. They’d set a beautiful table!
Rustic Wood Base Clip Holder
These place holders are so much fun – and so versatile! Use them on your Thanksgiving table setting, or any time of year to hold photos, or for dinner parties!
VonShef Brushed Gold Gravy Boat
Gravy is a big part of Thanksgiving, and it’s often the last minute when hosts remember that they need a vessel to get the good stuff to the table! This one is super pretty.
Mini Salt & Pepper Shakers
I go one of two ways on Thanksgiving for salt & pepper. I either pull out a couple of the old silver sets that have been handed down to us, or I go with these mini versions. My mom has done this for years, and it makes the table feel so special. She doesn’t only use them for Thanksgiving. Any day is a day to be celebrated, and gathering her family is one of those days, so these always make an appearance.
Wooden Serving Bowls
These kinds of bowls seem so special to me. They can be used any day, but on a Thanksgiving table they look stunning. They remind me of stories I heard of the first Thanksgiving, and how simple it was.
Special flatware like this Berglander Flatware Set
Little touches make a Thanksgiving table different than your everyday table. Just like with the salt and pepper, I go back and forth on this one. It’s either a special set like this, or one that has been handed down.
Gold-leaf Salad Servers
I have two sets of these beauties, and I think they’re super special! They’re always a conversation starter, people always ask where I got them! (Amazon)!
Crystal Red Wine Glass with Gold Band Design
How pretty would these look on your Thanksgiving table? Something you can use for special occasions, or even to drink your morning juice out of. There are no limits.
Thanksgiving entertaining is a chance to get the people you love around the table to celebrate how blessed you are to have each other. It’s my favorite holiday for that reason. Open up your home, put the leaf in the table and gather as many as you can. You’ve got this.
