Whether you’re in Canada and celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend or you’re US-based and still have more than a month to plan and prepare, we’ve put together some simple ideas for creating a contemporary festive atmosphere.
A festive tablecloth or cloth napkins can make a bold statement when paired with a simple table setting using solid coloured place settings and serving dishes.
Or skip the tablecloth and instead decorate using some random branches with berries and an apple or pear at each place setting.
Never underestimate the influence great scented candles can have on a room’s atmosphere, especially when the aroma complements the food.
A wooden charger–faux or real–adds a great organic, natural element, even when coordinated with gold cutlery and menswear-inspired napkins.
Step outside and pick up some pine cones to use as place card holders.
Coloured twine and burlap are a great way to simply dress up serving dishes sitting on a sideboard or mantle.
Wherever you are and however you celebrate, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
