As November is just around the corner, let’s take a look at some Thanksgiving Entertaining Essentials. Included today in this post are beautiful dinner plates, silverware, tureens, and much more. I include quite a few unique items today, which I love to support Etsy companies.
I love to create a beautiful dinner table for any special occasion. I had so much fun styling my latest Elegant Thanksgiving Table.
There is something quite pleasing about sitting down at a table that is beautifully decorated. And now that we are in quarantine and we aren’t going out to dinner anymore, so our dinners are now more than ever, super important. So, this year, make sure to create a gorgeous table for your family on Thanksgiving day.

Here are some of my past tables for a bit of inspiration.
Last year, I bought these pretty bundles of wheat. I love how they took center stage on our Thanksgiving table.
This table is all about pumpkins and fruit! I’m obsessed with using natural elements when creating my Thanksgiving tables. So gather leaves, pumpkins, fruit, and even flower petals to style your table.
This post is from a couple of years ago. It is timeless and inexpensive to design.

I own this flatware, and I LOVE it! If you like a substantial fork, knife, and spoon, then this set is for you.

Of course, they are a part of my Thanksgiving entertaining essentials!
