Dress Up the Thanksgiving Table

1 + Save

If you like it, save it!

Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place.

Got it!

If you like something…

Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

The Thanksgiving table is a place for tradition. You probably have your routine, your classic menu, your customary serving dishes and place settings, but why not shake things up a bit? Tradition is great, but adding a new piece or two never hurts. Here are 6 items we'd love to dress up our holiday tables with. 

Champagne Coupe

Sipping a sparkly beverage from a coupe makes any occasion feel a little more festive.


We love these light wood plates. The large platter would look lovely on any table, and could maybe even fit a small-ish turkey. If you like the small dishes (we do, too!) may we suggest serving dessert on them


Who knew a trivet could be so pretty? Leave it on your table as a decoration before the big feast, then let it serve its purpose and protect your table from hot dishes. 

Serving Dish

And what will you put on top of that pretty trivet? A beautiful covered serving dish, of course. 


Candlesticks always have a place at the table. 


If you need to pick up some new candles, try these organic beeswax tapers. (They pair beautifully with the candlesticks above.)
