360° Thanksgiving Guide
Whether you're celebrating with ex-pats in the Cotswolds or with family at your childhood home stateside, we're here to share Thanksgiving tips and inspiration -- from the menu to the soundtrack to the tablescape.
I'm personally bored of a pumpkin orange tablescape for Thanksgiving. This year, I'm mixing navy blue and burgundy instead. Here is our Blue & White Tablecloth with scalloped edges.
In honor of turkey day, I'm substituting expensive flowers with burgundy goose feathers. Moonlight Feather has a wide variety of decorative feathers.
I'll tuck the feathers into our Decorative Urns.
Another source of color could be red pomegranates -- available at the grocery store and can be eaten after the big meal!
In each cup, I'll put a Ceramic Bamboo Straw.
At each seat, I'll put Bamboo Placecard Holders.
Around each napkin, I'll put Bamboo Napkin Rings.
100% cotton, laundry-safe Blue & White Napkins in our signature pattern.
Love this cream, ostrich-feathered pencil skirt from Ann Taylor so much that I wore it in our holiday campaign!
This burgundy sleeveless turtleneck is $17.50! And it matches with the cranberry sauce.
To fit in with the tablescape, I like this blue Hermes Shawl from Style Tribute. Draped around your shoulders, it's a timeless look. This option is second hand, so the cost is a little lower!
These Sam Edelman "prailine" suede boots are a nice neutral color but have a very sexy silhouette. The material and height will keep your legs toasty!
I like how our Pearl Basket earrings match with the cranberry sauce and the $17.50 top!
Our Bamboo Bangle Bracelet is another nice natural touch.
I would not put leftovers in our Basket with Recycled Fox Fur, but I would still tote it around.
If caviar is or aren't part of your Thanksgiving celebration, our Black Caviar earrings are still totally chic.
These Mini Hot Dogs are not my recipe, but I don't have a better picture. This appetizer gets people in the mood they want to have on Thanksgiving - that of indulgence!
Chefanie's Butternut Squash Soup immediately warms guests up! Because it can fully be prepared before the event, it will save you the day-of fuss.
Add some homemade metallic pepitas to make a really grand first impression!
To make your turkey look like it came straight out of a fine dining establishment, cook a turkey breast soux vide with truffle butter. Full recipe here.
Beside all the pies, let a cake decorated with Firenze Chefanie Sheets pop out of the dessert table! Plus, decorating it can be an activities for the kiddos in the kitchen.
Pop a bottle of bubbly when guests arrive ... this holiday comes only once a year! I love the taste of Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne -- and also how it matches so many of the menu items.
My perennial favorite white wine -- a California Chardonnay from Cuvaison. This wine tastes like olive oil and will not break the bank.
I love Vietti Barolo if we're pairing turkey with a red wine.
