Thanksgiving Dinner Party

Hosting Thanksgiving this year? I want to share a few ideas on how to make your dinner party stylish yet festive. Most dining room tables have some sort of light fixture above it ... maybe a chandelier? If so, don't forget to decorate that to coordinate with your theme. In the photo below they draped the fixture with grapes and grape vines, really tying the whole room together!

In the photo board below, I want to point out the place card of flowers that you can hang on the back of a chair. Sometimes the table can be so full of food being served family style, the centerpieces need to be scaled down. This is a way to bring festive floral into your setting without it taking up space on the table.

Give your guests a fun cocktail as they arrive. The Blood Orange Prosecco cocktail is just that. Add blood orange juice to your glass of Prosecco and garnish with a slice!

The china and the rattan chargers in the pictures to the right can be found on SALE at Sur La Table. Be sure to check out the new Sur La Table store that has just opened up at The Bravern in downtown Bellevue!
