Thanksgiving is a time to get around the table and enjoy a tasty meal. Dinner may look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the extra time to showcase some of the table setting skills you’ve learned. You may even just beat your mom’s Thanksgiving table display.
Add a Centerpiece
When your guests first arrive at your home or into the video room, the first thing they should see is a centerpiece. You can get crafty and create your own base for your centerpiece or simply use some pumpkins. The centerpiece will give the first impression of the type of meal that is to come.
Create Name Cards
Even if all of your guests won’t be at your table this year, you can help things feel more normal by setting all of the seats and creating name cards. It prevents anyone who will be joining you at home from feeling awkward about choosing their seat. It also helps everyone feel like they belong at the table.
Fold Napkins & Line Silverware Appropriately
A folded napkin adds a touch of elegance to your table. You can make the fold as simple as complex as you would like! Along with a nice napkin, make sure you place silverware in the appropriate spot at the table. You’ll impress your parents and grandparents with what you’ve learned.
Leave Room for the Turkey, Sides, and Fixings
No matter how amazing your table looks, it will not be complete without the turkey, sides, or fixing. Make sure you leave just enough room for everything to fill your table. If your table isn’t big enough for this year’s festivities, be sure to check out these exceptional dining room table sets.
This may not be the holiday season we expected as we entered 2020, but we can make the best of it. From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
