Casual and Stylish Thanksgiving Table
Set a warm, welcoming table with these ideas for classic style that's not overdone.
For a classic Thanksgiving table that’s not overdone, set a warm, welcoming table with these ideas from Darryl Carter, owner of Darryl Carter furniture boutique in Washington, DC. Don’t get caught up in sticking to one decorative time period – pair sharp modern pieces with traditional antique table decorations for a Thanksgiving spread that is both stylish and casual. Looking for a new way to spruce up your table decorations for Thanksgiving? Mix and match different utensils for an intriguing place setting. Instead of crowding your table with imposing, overbearing flower arrangements, opt for small, loose flower bunches for a modest, yet beautiful, Thanksgiving centerpiece. Mismatched napkin rings and a fully stocked sideboard complete this table decoration for Thanksgiving. Plate your casual Thanksgiving meal under silver domed lids – and don’t shy away from unpolished finishes, which add a rustic, casual touch to the special occasion. Guests will feel warm and welcomed at this Thanksgiving table.
