How to Set a Thanksgiving Table

Tips, Tricks, and What You'll Need to Set a Thanksgiving Table:

  1. Harvest ideas from around the house. Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs has a ton of suggestions for materials you can find around the house in her Thanksgiving table setting guide.
  2. Make a check-list of what you need. Start with the center of the table and work your way to the outside. Some obvious must-makes include a centerpiece, place cards, candle holders, and napkin rings.
  3. Don't forget about the kids! Setting up a kiddie table with fun ways to keep them occupied is a great way to keep dinner running smoothly. One of our favorite DIY ideas is this Thanksgiving Table Setting for Kids.
