Can you believe that it is already fall and that Thanksgiving is right around the corner? This is without a doubt my favorite time of year! The past couple of years I have hosted Thanksgiving dinner for our whole family, and when I say our whole family, I mean everyone from my family and my husband’s family all around one table! I absolutely love hosting Thanksgiving! There is just something so special about gathering everyone together and being able to look around the table at the many blessings in your life. I wanted to put together a Guide to Farmhouse Style Thanksgiving Entertaining to help you get ready for entertaining guests this Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite places to shop for entertaining essentials is Cost Plus World Market! They have the best selection of table linens, decor, chargers and more! It is so easy to lose track of time while browsing through my local Nashville West store! If you aren’t sure if you have a World Market in your area, you can use this quick and easy store locator to find out. They always have tons of sales going on so you can always get great deals!
Guide to Farmhouse Style Thanksgiving Entertaining
First up in our guide to thanksgiving entertaining must-haves is…
Let’s start with your table runner, placemats and napkins. Typically when setting a table I like to use a table runner instead of a tablecloth to keep things simple. I love the Villa Stripe Table Runner from World Market! It has that french grain sack look which is perfect for farmhouse decor! When entertaining, I often choose to use chargers rather than placemats because I love the layered look they give to my table. However, if you are looking for a more affordable option, placemats will still give you that same layered look for less! Finally, no table is ready for thanksgiving entertaining without some cloth napkins. World Market has a large selection of napkins to choose from, my favorite are their 100% linen napkins!
Your chargers, dinnerware, glassware, and cutlery are usually referred to as the place setting. I always use white dishes in every place setting! World Market has some great options such as this White Nantucket Dinnerware set. My all time favorite glassware for table settings are their gorgeous Blue Pressed Glass Goblets and Tumblers! You may recall me using them in my Fixer Upper Style Patriotic Tablescape.
These are some must-have items for serving your guests for Thanksgiving! When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner you can never have too many platters. I love simple white platters such as this Nantucket Serving Platter, or this Oversized Turkey Platter. Not only do they make all the delicious looking food take center stage, they are also great for displaying on shelves when not in use! Another great serving dish is World Market’s Ceramic Pumpkin Casserole Baker! Can’t you just see yourself serving some Butternut Squash soup out of it with this Olivewood Ladle?!
Now for my favorite part, the centerpiece! For a large gathering such as a Thanksgiving meal, less is definitely more. Space is limited so you want to keep your decor simple and unobtrusive. Using a garland is a great way to add some greenery to your table without a lot of work. This live Olive and Eucalyptus Garland is absolutely stunning and would look gorgeous mixed in with some Natural Wood Pillar Candleholders and some heirloom pumpkins!
