The Thanksgiving celebration culminates in a meal for which friends and family gather around as a reminder of bountiful blessings. This makes the dining area all the more important during this celebration.
In this article, we’ll be sharing three inspired tablescaping techniques from our Let’s Give Thanks campaign that can make your Thanksgiving meal all the more special for your friends and loved ones.
Intrigue the Senses
Aside from plating beautiful dishes in your holiday tablescape, adding scents to the scene elevates the dining experience.
Aromatic tea or fresh fruit can add delightful aromas to a tablescape. Our scent diffuser is also an easy way to incorporate a festive atmosphere in your celebration.
Garnish with Foliage
Serving as a table runner, divider, and centerpiece rolled into one, a garland effortlessly transforms any surface into a beautiful tablescape almost immediately.
Garlands are best used on rectangular tables. For round or square tables, wreaths look best.
Delight in the Details
When tablescaping, it is important to pay attention to the small things. Large ornate centerpieces are wonderful to have, but many times the smaller details are overlooked. Adding thoughtful tweaks show your guests that you care.
In the photo shown above, the plate stack consists of copper, leopard print, and embossed white plates. It is then topped by white, bronze and copper napkins. This attention to detail reveals thoughtfulness and artistry.
In the tablescape shown below, nameplates are hung on the backs of dining chairs. The host had not only considered who was seated where; she had lovingly written the names by hand.
Any of these techniques will make your Thanksgiving experience more meaningful. Every effort that goes into the holiday table is an expression of love and gratitude to your guests, friends, and loved ones.
