a thoughtful thanksgiving table

 

 

Thanksgiving must be beautiful for the guests but practical for the hostess! I was so excited when my friend Batsheva asked me to create a thanksgiving table that was just that – practical & beautiful! I had so much fun sourcing items that can be disposed of to make the clean up process easier for the hostess!

The table is anchored with a collection of three blue and white oriental vases. I filled them with hydrangea, orange tulips, yellow roses, and some fall branches. I added a pop of color with orange and yellow florals to bring the warmth of the season and contrast the cool blues and oriental patterns.

My favorite find was the Hester and Cook disposable paper chargers! They are just as stunning in person as they look in these photos! They let the rustic wood table to shine and allow you to “adios the tablecloth!” These chargers have unlimited styling options. You could use them as chargers or grouped together as runners! And the best part – toss them during clean up!

Another amazing collection, Michael Aram Madhouse. The chic disposable options are endless – many of which are dishwasher safe and reuseable if you wish! They make for a great option for outdoor entertaining, no need to worry about your favorite glasses breaking! I paired the The Rock Collection flatware with the Melon Tritan Goblet.

Ralph Lauren Mandarin Blue Plate was a perfect addition to this table. I also like this similar disposable option by Caspri. I topped the plate with a crisply folded gray linen napkin, a seeded eucalyptus stem, and a fresh pear to tie in the rustic fall vibe. A fall fruit statement on each place setting can double as a creative place card! Simply use a gold Sharpie, your best penmanship, and get a little crafty!

Lastly, a craft fall cocktail is a must at a Thanksgiving dinner party. But let’s be honest, it’s not fun to be a bartender for your guests all night! Let your guests be the mixologist with some simple guidence. Set up small station on the edge of your table, or on your buffet.

Set out a cinnamon and sugar riming bowl, a few bottles of Prosecco, a glass milk jug filled with fresh cider and allow you guests to craft a yummy Apple Cider Mimosa! This drink is simple to make but sure to be a hit!

We’ve also included a great menu complete with recipes curated by Cooking in Heels to view, visit Batsheva’s Blog!

Happy Thanksgiving!
