Dinnerware and Thanksgiving Decor for Your Holiday Table

When planning a festive holiday feast for friends and family, the menu is a top priority. But what makes your dinner extra special is the elegant dinnerware you use and the Thanksgiving decor you select. Whether you're hosting a festive cocktail party, a friendsgiving potluck, a family-style feast or something in between, these fall-appropriate decor items from west elm will look great at your Thanksgiving table.

Thanksgiving Dinnerware

Set elegant place settings for your Thanksgiving meal with a modern dinnerware set. Coordinated dinnerware sets generally feature a dinner plate and a salad or appetizer plate and may also include matching cereal bowls, pasta bowls, mugs, saucers and more. For Thanksgiving, choose neutral plates and bowls in shades like white or gray to let your decor and table accessories shine.

  • Add an extra layer of color to your Thanksgiving table by using charger plates underneath the dinner plates. Pewter chargers make a great addition to a cool-toned table and copper chargers are lovely for a warm-toned table.
  • For your dinner utensils, stainless steel flatware sets include a salad fork, a dinner fork, a table knife and two spoons. They are available in sets of five, 20 or 60 pieces.
  • Gold flatware also makes a surprising addition to a holiday dinner table. These utensils are crafted of stainless steel with a gorgeous gold finish.
  • Steak knives are also a useful addition to a Thanksgiving table for cutting the turkey.
  • Beautiful serveware options in marble, wood and glazed stoneware are also available in various sizes to perfectly complement your modern dinnerware.

Thanksgiving Table Decor

Once the right holiday dinnerware and flatware are chosen, finish the look with beautiful table accents. Mix-and-match from a variety of fall decor options to create a table that fits the vibe of your party.

  • A classy table runner crafted of pure cotton adds subtle texture and color to the dinner or buffet table. Pair the runner with a faux garland for an effortlessly elegant centerpiece.
  • A decorative place card holder at each setting showcasing your guest's names makes your table feel fancier. Place card holders come in shiny gold or silver.
  • The warm glow of candlelight is always welcome at the dinner table. Place ivory taper candles in brass candle holders for a sophisticated centerpiece.
  • Pretty floating candles are another option and are a casual and romantic choice for your Thanksgiving decor.
  • Flameless candles are a great alternative to real wax candles at a busy dinner party. These battery-operated lights flawlessly mimic flickering amber candlelight.
  • Fill a pretty porcelain vase with a bouquet of real or faux flowers to add a touch of the outdoors to your table. Use an arrangement of blooms in fall colors like red and orange to enhance your Thanksgiving table.

Set an unforgettable table this holiday season with beautiful Thanksgiving decor from west elm. Create perfect place settings with coordinating dinnerware and flatware then add personality with decor extras like table runners and candles. Mix-and-match items from the Thanksgiving collection and enjoy a relaxing day of giving thanks with your loved ones.
