How is Thanksgiving less than 2 weeks away?! It feels like the second half of the year has flown by. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that always feels wonderful to spend with family and close friends.
If you’re hosting like I am, it doesn’t hurt to have a nice table setting that doesn’t break the bank, but still looks elegant!
silverware (splurge) | silverware (save) | chargers (splurge) | chargers (save)
tablecloth (splurge) | tablecloth (save) | LED candles
pillar candles (splurge) | pillar candles (save) | wine glasses (splurge) | wine glasses (save)
water glasses (splurge) | water glasses (save) | napkins | string lights
The majority of the items we used were from the save options, with a couple items found even cheaper at Home Goods! Looking at you, table cloth and pillar candles. Mix and match your favorite items to make it as elegant & formal or elegant & casual as you like!
Personalize the table even more by getting mini pumpkins from the grocery store and writing everyone’s name on one to use as a place card! We used these metallic markers to write the names.
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a signature drink and my go to this year is an apple cider mimosa!
Rim champagne flutes with a mix of cinnamon & sugar then fill ¾ of the way with champagne and top the remaining ¼ with Prosecco. Garnish with a thin apple wedge and enjoy!
Outfit for the Hostess
This year for Thanksgiving, I’m feeling comfy vibes with a bit of glam!
My favorite app for Thanksgiving is a charcuterie board or grazing board! The assortment of meats and cheeses are always a crowd pleaser and tie you over until it’s time for the main course! Get a mix of hard and soft cheeses, salami, prosciutto, & crackers and fill in the holes with dried fruits, olives and spread to have something to appeal to every guest.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself this holiday season! Take a moment to relax before or after Thanksgiving by pampering yourself with a facial at the MAB Spa in Tysons Corner!
