How We're Dressing Our Dining Table for Its Most Important Day of the Year, Thanksgiving

If there is one day of the year to play dress up with your table, it's Thanksgiving.

And it's no secret we'll make just about any excuse to style our table from linens to votives and love leaning into a theme.

We tried to strike a balance in terms of formality: not too fussy but not casual either. These wooden candlesticks achieve just that, and we appreciate how their faint grey color gives you liberty to use a pop of color for the actual candle. Burnt orange was begging to be used for this scene. 

We wanted to incorporate harvest hues and layer textures to give it a distinctive autumnal feel.  These woven wicker placemats, handcrafted in Europe, add an earthiness and don't detract from the pattern on the tablecloth. 

We got away with less showy flora thanks to this amazing tablecloth (email us for inquiries or DM @shoptheavenue) and these incredible hand painted plates by Richard Ginori, both of which are as pleasing as real blooms themselves. 

Plus, we can all agree the meal is the real main attraction of this holiday, so we kept the other elements fairly simple and neutral like these gray linen napkins with fringe detailing


The copper flatware is sleek and totally jives with the amber tones throughout and play up the ivory and golden painted pumpkins to add something a little fantastical.  

We opted for these handblown tumblers as opposed to stuffy goblets, and their rosy hue felt like a refreshing departure from the run-of-the-mill Thanksgiving color wheel. 

Whatever your plans may be two weeks from today, we hope to have imparted a little inspiration to put a twist on your traditional setting, provide a helping hand to whomever is hosting in your clan or just pay your respects and appreciation to the one that sets your Thanksgiving table this year. 

After all, isn't that what we're celebrating? Very thankful for each & every one of you!
