Creating the perfect Thanksgiving table setting

Thanksgiving is soon approaching and we’re dreaming of enjoying a cozy evening with our loved ones while indulging in one of our favorite meals of the year. Although most are planning on scaling back their Thanksgiving guest list this year, due to COVID-19, that doesn’t have to make this year's festivities any less special. At Alder & Tweed, we are finding the silver lining in this opportunity to embrace a smaller, more intimate, Thanksgiving celebration.

With a smaller guest list, more attention can be given to the small details that often get overlooked. A pretty table doesn’t make or break anyone’s Thanksgiving, but it is always nice to know that someone took the time to make something beautiful for you. 

 Creating the perfect Thanksgiving table setting

Choosing a theme is the most important step in creating the perfect Thanksgiving table setting. Having an idea of a style you want, prior to setting your table, will help guide you through the process of creating a spread that is both cohesive and beautiful. Start with a design theme - like cozy and traditional - then follow it through with all the dining elements. This includes napkins, serving ware, and the centerpieces.

Layering your table adds an extra element of interest. Our design team likes to layer materials and textures when creating a beautiful table setting. Simple variations on color make the table setting process nearly effortless. This timeless and easy way of designing will keep the table setting both sophisticated and beautiful.

Bring in an element of surprise by adding something organic to your table setting. A beautiful floral arrangement or a piece of greenery tucked into a pretty ribbon, fastening the silverware, will add a subtle softness to the table and tie everything together. 


We are obsessed with this stunning table setting from one of our recent projects. Check out the full house tour on our YouTube channel.
