Buffet and serving
These cake stands are not only a great way to display your Thanksgiving sweets, but they also can provide visual interest on the buffet table by varying heights. Just make sure to use a non-slip trivet under the casserole or bowl.
Thats right. Gravy pitchers - we are not crazy about traditional gravy boats for a couple of reasons. Because of their wide mouth, the gravy cools too fast and they can be awkward and messy to pour. Consider one or a couple of the pitchers below and don't forget to warm them with hot water before pouring the gravy in them.
To avoid a last minute scavenger hunt for the serving utensils have plenty on hand and place them out before guests arrive.
Bowls & oven to table
If there is one thing we use a lot of at Thanksgiving it is bowls! We use the pretty ones for both cooking and serving - making clean-up a little easier.
We think everyone should have at least one special platter for the Thanksgiving turkey...buy one new, or check out our selection of vintage ones here.
Place cards provide personality to the table, and avoids last minute seating drama. Below are a few found on Etsy - some doubling as a take-home remembrance.
Placemats, linens & table runners
I think the most beautiful tables have multiple layers. Chargers, over placemats, over fabric - whether a table runner or cloth. I find that lots of varied textures create interest. There are so many products to choose from - here are some ideas.
