Hi Friends! Thank you so much for all of your kind remarks regarding our new dining room table. It’s so fun to see the space freshened up, and while I still have a few things I want to do, I’m glad I was able to show you before all of my holiday decorating is in full swing. If you are a familiar face around here, than you know I have a deep passion for creating warm and inviting tables. Whether they are elaborate or simple, I always pull out my staple pieces when it comes time to entertain. With Thanksgiving just a week away, and Christmas coming soon, the holidays are the perfect time to gather friends and family around the table. So I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Thanksgiving Table staples, and most are pieces you can use all year round.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or just starting out at setting a table, there is one thing we can all agree on. Having some good staple pieces make hosting so much easier. When choosing my table staples I tend to stick to things that are neutral in color, and classic in design. Good staples will never go out of style, giving them lots of longevity. Along with keeping things neutral, it’s makes them versatile for any event, so you can carry them through each season. You can click on the images below for their direct links, but here is a glance at some of my favorites.
Soft table linens help create an inviting table. Classic dishware means you don’t have to worry about things going out of style anytime soon. Where I like to play around a bit, is with my glasses and silverware. I have two staples, almost like jewelry. A rose gold silverware set, and an antique silver I received as a christmas present last year from Anthropologie. So wether I want to create a classic heirloom feel like this years thanksgiving table –
Or add some warmth with a slightly modern touch, like last years thanksgiving table –
I have two clear staples that I can use either way, or however the mood strikes. I think the most important thing to keep in mind though when setting the table, is to use pieces that speak to you. Maybe it’s using a favorite color, or salad plates you found at the quaintest little boutique. Maybe it’s a handed down china set, like what I have, or your great-grandmothers silver. Don’t be afraid to mix pieces, or even metals. I think the best tables are the ones with pieces that were collected over time.
