SET THE THANKSGIVING TABLE WITH AN AUTUMNAL MIX

by Marisa Marcantonio


Setting a holiday table provides a chance to get creative, while using what you love. Mixing heirloom silver, old and new china, favorite serving pieces and decorative touches, you can set a table that is a true reflection of your personality. Whether you go all-out elegant or casual, Thanksgiving is a chance to share all that you are most grateful for, in a way that best suits your individual style. There are several now classic tabletop pieces that speak the Thanksgiving language, as they embody fall and all of its charms. Featuring feathers, horn, rich woods and patina-ed finishes, a spirited autumnal table is within arm's reach. Give thanks and dig in!

Although it is not new, Ralph Lauren Home's perfect faux-horn rimmed china adds a polished rustic vibe to the table and will take you through winter.

Edged in a few bird feathers, the Carolyn pattern from Ralph Lauren Home is just the thing for dinners in the hunting lodge or Connecticut farm table. 

One of my favorite flatware patterns to launch, I was originally smitten with the faux ivory twist version of this Kent flatware from Oscar de la Renta Home. If I could have the teak for fall and the ivory for spring, I would switch it out seasonally and thoroughly enjoy it.

Glasses provide the perfect opportunity to bring a little color to the table. Nina Campbell recently launched these stunning pieces in ruby glass with a twist design. Gorgeous!

Adding another horn moment to the table is not a bad idea. Vagabond House, known for their beautifully rendered pewter designs of objects found in nature, created these highly realistic horn serving pieces. Year in and year out, these will be your seasonally appropriate go-to serving tools.
