The Art of Having Fun

Pop the Bubbly: Gray's Thanksgiving Table

Hi Everyone,

I am a  big believer that a beautifully set table makes any meal a special occasion, and what meal could not be more special than Thanksgiving? This year I am  hosting my family for the first time ever in our recently redesigned kitchen and dining room. Though I may not be an expert at cooking a turkey, I certainly know how to set a cheerful table.

Gray's Thanksgiving Table Setting Tips - It'll be your Chicest Table, yet!

For this special occasion I turned to my friends at Juliska for some special new items for my family to enjoy this year.

THE TABLEWARE

Decorative plates add a welcoming layer to any festive table and I couldn't help myself after seeing these autumnal plates in person earlier this summer.

The Forest Walk Leaf Cocktail Plate Set is my favorite new decorative Fall accent to my beloved staple Classic Bamboo tableware and flatware. I also layered the table with new Willow Natural Placemats and feather wrapped napkin rings that I scored at Juliska's tent sale back in September. With only a few new items I was able to transform the tableware I already owned into something special without breaking the bank.

THE GLASSWARE

There can never be too many glasses on a table! I love offering various libations along with their respective glassware options. The more glass on a table, the more sparkly it becomes. Thanksgiving Table Setting Tips - Pick the right glassware

My Carine Red Goblet wine glasses can double as a water glass if needed, and its stemless White glass counterpart could also be used for a cocktail or two. I especially liked how lovely they look with tea light candle holders and Amalia candlesticks, which are always part of my table settings.

THE CENTERPIECE

I recommend pulling out all the stops when it comes to the centerpiece... especially on Thanksgiving

. Thanksgiving Table Setting Tips - Wow with a Stunning Centerpiece

The Empty Vase never ceases to amaze me with their incredible floral imagination and talent. When this beauty arrived at my doorstep, I had pure joy in my eyes because I knew the table was now complete! This floral topped au natural pumpkin vase is the rustic centerpiece of my Thanksgiving table setting dreams. If you are interested in knowing how to do this arrangement at home, The Empty Vase has a tutorial for you.

FESTIVE SIPS

The Thanksgiving table setting decor vibes don't need to end after that last bite is taken. Serve up something warm and soothing for those full bellies after the meal is done. Thanksgiving Table Setting Tips from Gray Malin

Call me traditional, but I still love some warm apple cider around Thanksgiving time. It's just one of those things that conjures up so many wonderful memories. This year, I'll be serving up this childhood favorite in these mugs on the Forest Walk platter. Perhaps add a splash of spiced rum, if you'd like to make a bit of an adult update to this classic night cap. And, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed walking through my Thanksgiving Table Setting Tips with me. It was fun sharing them with you all. Thanks again and Cheers to a very Happy Thanksgiving...table.

 Cheers,

xx

GM

*Special thanks to Juliska for the lovely tableware and Empty Vase for the impeccable center arrangement.
