It doesn’t have to take much prodding to admit that the star of the Thanksgiving dinner is the dinner itself, but the festivity and ambience of the holiday are made that much more celebratory when you are seated at a table that is beautifully decorated.
Where the dinner often revolves around old family recipes that have been passed down through the generations, the table very often showcases old family heirlooms–Grandmother’s china, and Mom’s lovely soup tureen, perhaps. With each passing year, new recipes are added to the mix, and new, more modern slants on decor can make their way to the dinner table and buffets as well.
We have compiled a list of the most popular table settings and centerpieces that have been re-pinned from our “Thanksgiving Everything” Pinterest board. They run the gamut from DIY projects, to ready made, and we hope they will offer insight and inspiration.
