A beautifully set table makes any meal a special occasion—and what meal could be more important than Thanksgiving dinner?
Guests spend most of their time at the table, so make time to plan your place settings and centerpiece. You'll want to strike the right tone and feeling, whether you're hosting a formal affair or a casual family get-together.
We teamed up with local experts at Grace Rosenstein Design, Wakeman Town Farm, Fresh Flower Bar, and terrain to set a table that's dressed to impress!
*Westport Lifestyle can not guarantee family members will behave once seated at the table.
Grace's Styling Tips:
Take your time. Take pride in spacing out the flatware or tying beautiful ribbons around the napkins. These details make your guests feel special.
Be flexible. Use what you have in your garden, cabinets or around your house. There are no rules here. These cinnamon sticks and ghords were last-minute additions that make the table a success.
Edit. Less is more when it comes to tablescaping. This should also be about the food after all. Also, use white plates (a trip I’ve always appreciated from Ina Garten). Food looks best on white plates.
Add texture. It’s all about the variety: glass, wood, linens, florals, porcelain, etc. The mix of texture brings the table to life!
