Thanksgiving is almost here! I’ll be honest, I’m not normally into Thanksgiving all that much– I prefer to skip straight to Christmas– but this year I’m embracing it. I am excited to set my Thanksgiving table and am working on our recipe lineup now. I thought I’d share my finds for both of those things here, in hopes that it makes your Thanksgiving prep a little easier and more fun.
First, the table!
1. I really love all La Rochere glassware. They have beautiful options for both water and wine. I also love these tumblers. These Edward glasses are also a beautiful option.
2. Cabbageware is a classic for me. I have a ton of these pieces from Bordallo Pinheiro in both white and green and I love the mix. Plus, they work really well on a Thanksgiving table. I love these plates, this platter, and this large serving bowl.
3. I ordered these napkins for our table this year and I’m very pleased. I was looking for a specific color and these made the cut. They’re 100% cotton and a great inexpensive option. I also thought these ones were pretty for fall.
4. Already discussed above, but thought they deserved a spot! Love these plates so much.
5. I love adding hurricanes to the table, and these ones are dreamy. I had to list them even though they’re on order (like everything else right now). I also love these taper hurricanes, which are available in the stores! This style is also great for fall– I have them and love them!
6. Bamboo flatware is so popular right now, but I do really love it on a Thanksgiving table. It’s still classic enough, but adds a fun natural touch.
7. This little pumpkin!! No explanation needed.
8. These are such a great dupe to the classic La Rochere. The price point can’t be beat!
