Thanksgiving may look a little different this year, so whether you’re hosting friends, family or going totally virtual – we have you covered! We are big fans of creating a Thanksgiving table that’s festive, fun and totally easy to set up and clean up. You’re already juggling hosting, gifting and cooking – there’s no need to add anything else to that list! We’re sharing a few of our Thanksgiving tablescape tips so your holiday can be a breeze.
The Early Bird Gets to Relax.
Don’t save setting up your table for the day of – we recommend ordering all your tablescape essentials ahead of time and setting up your table way in advance! Or at least, the night before. Grab your favorite tablecloth (or order something cheap and festive from Amazon), to eliminate cleanup of spills or messes. You’ll thank us later! We fully support mixing fine dinnerware with fun and festive pieces. For example, pairing your best China with our Linen Paper Napkins? Win win. The thicker linen fabric elevates the look and feel of these disposable napkins while leaving you without a load of a laundry at the end of your feast!
Gobble With Something Other Than Glass!
Tired of hand washing those beautiful wine glasses your second cousin’s great grandmother passed down? Swap cocktail cups with our selection of styrofoam or shatterproof Thanksgiving cups. There’s a huge variety of designs to cover you from cocktails to wine with dessert. Here’s a few of our favorites.
These styrofoam cocktail cups for Thanksgiving are ready to ship and the best way to kick off your dinner party. The “Let’s Get Basted” theme is perfect for sipping on something while you cook or bringing as a gift for the hostess.
You can’t go wrong with a classic print like our best-selling “Thankful” wrap cups. There’s a reason these sell out almost every year – they’re timeless, great to photograph and go with any tablescape!
A classic “Happy Thanksgiving” cup is perfect for holding wine or pairing with your more traditional tablescape pieces. These ready to ship cups come in a sleeve of 10, so they’re a great gift to give with a bottle of wine or hot apple cider! This year, we’re loving this fun gifting idea from Just Add Confetti – because who doesn’t love some pumpkin spice!?
Looking for something other than styrofoam? These shatterproof plastic cups are still easy for cleanup (totally disposable) and also can be customized. You’ll have to give yourself some time for a custom order, but we promise it’ll be worth it!
A Tablescape Instagram Will Love
Let’s face it – we build a Thanksgiving table our guests will enjoy, but if it didn’t get photographed for social media, it basically didn’t happen! Here’s how we built a tablescape friends (in person and online) ooh-ed and ahh-ed over.
That tablecloth we talked about earlier? We got ours from Amazon. The neutral print is festive but still subtle enough to let the festive decorations pop. Head to your local craft store for inexpensive table decorations, like these gold dusted pine cones. They’re perfect for sticking in a napkin ring for some festive flair or using in a floral centerpiece. Okay.. here’s the final touch! Grab some whole cranberries while you’re stockpiling at the grocery store, and sprinkle throughout the table! It’s an unexpected and easy decoration that adds a little color to your traditional table. We mixed them into cranberry cocktails, too!
No matter who’s at your table, we hope you have a Thanksgiving filled with love and joy – and great food, of course!
