Your old Thanksgivings holiday may have been filled with handprint turkeys and plastic leaves.
If that’s still your go-to, it’s time to upgrade your holiday décor with luxurious finds from your favorite designers and shops. Bring warmth and festivity to your home this Thanksgiving holiday with decorating selections sure to set your table apart. String up a garland, set the oven, and arrange your table with elegant pieces you’ll use for years to come.
Make An Entrance
From the beginning of the holiday season (whenever that is for you) until New Year’s, no door, or table if you choose, is complete without a festive wreath. Create a custom wreath or choose from a selection with seasonal colors and flowers, fragrant herbs, fall leaves, gourds, pumpkins, and more. Whoever you engage as a wreath-maker will have ideas for distinctive inclusions and a matchless wreath. For an understated Thanksgiving look, a muted palette of greens and earthy colors will bring a more refined feeling to your home.
This Thanksgiving holiday, turn an oft-forgotten décor staple into a statement piece with a sparkly tablecloth. It will bring a touch of glamour to your Thanksgiving table, and the bronze color will complement your décor. The understated shimmer will give your table an unexpected pop in-person and in your photos. If the full table is too much for your taste, try a glimmering garland to get a glittery touch.
Turn the ordinarily utilitarian napkin into an eye-catching decoration with handcrafted 24-karat gold and Swarovski crystal napkin rings. No longer a necessity at the dining table with the advent of laundry in homes, utilizing these will bring interest and fun to your table, not to mention a serious sparkle. Let the rings guide the rest of your table setting for a pulled-together look.
(Center)Pièce de Résistance
For the center of attention, create the illusion of fresh blooms with a handcrafted arrangement fashioned by Diane James. As a master of artificial flowers and plants made from the finest fabrics, her studio’s luxurious handcrafted arrangements will provide a natural look and feel and you won’t stress about wilting or dying buds while you wait for your guests to arrive.
To get your table into a truly festive mood, look no further than a classic Thanksgiving holiday decoration: the cornucopia. For a natural look, choose a cornucopia representing all the abundance of autumn that showcases tradition with a twist. A more luxurious take on the same theme is a handmade and mouth-blown cornucopia of amber, gold, and crystal created by master Italian artisans.
Serve In Style
Would a Thanksgiving holiday be complete without a side of gravy? Give this rather inelegant dish a fancy home with a Philippe Deshoulieres porcelain gravy boat. Your family and guests will enjoy pouring in style with this classic piece.
Dress up a side dish by presenting it in a crystal server shaped like a Turkey. An unexpected shape for a serving dish, but perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday; even mashed potatoes will feel like the main course in this bowl. This beautifully crafted server will please the eye no matter how you utilize the dish.
