As Fall takes a tighter hold, it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming Holidays! Thanksgiving is our family’s favorite time of the year – as it is for many I’m sure! – as we get to come together, socialize, play games, and enjoy delicious food.
In this Shop the Look feature I’m going to share my top tips and ideas on how you can get prepared for Thanksgiving Entertaining in your home to create a warm and welcoming entertaining space this Holiday season!
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.
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.
