How to Recognize Thanksgiving Entertaining

From large warm stoneware dishes for presenting and storing food, to the finishing touches to the dining room table, Thanksgiving Entertaining encompasses it all! Items that are usually required are: napkins, tablecloth, glassware, cutlery and napkin rings, pie dishes, plates, candles, table decor, and anything else you may need to have a successful Thanksgiving! Above all, Thanksgiving Entertaining is about the enjoyment of cooking and eating delicious food, and having a beautiful space in which to do this with family and friends.

Fun Facts:

Did you know that one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations dates back to 1621? It was in Massachusetts where the autumn harvest was celebrated with a large feast. Largely as a way of saying “thanks” for what should be a fruitful harvest, this celebration has become one of the most important dates of the American calendar!

Traditional Thanksgiving Entertaining involves socializing over food and drink with family and friends. The celebration usually has a nod towards the wheat, pumpkins, corn, and other harvested fruits and vegetables.
