Thanksgiving is filled with family, friends, food, and tradition. We fill our tables with dishes that celebrate our culture, our family, and the seasonal harvest of coming together in gratitude. This experience that surrounds our plates this holiday season is important, just like what’s on them. Create a wholesome ambiance without the stress with fully-cooked holiday meals and dishes, custom pies for dessert, and beautiful centerpieces made by the holiday experts at Albertsons. Simply follow this guide, and you’ll be on your way to creating a memorable Thanksgiving experience with ease.
Keep the Decor Simple
Don’t overthink it, when it comes to creating a traditional look, simplicity is key. Set your table with earth tones and classic serveware and flatware to make it look authentic and warm. You can add textured accents like woven chargers to enhance your look without making it look busy. Finish your place settings with colorful pumpkins that adds originality, without looking too over-the-top.
Holiday Pro-Tip: Instead of a tablecloth, use a piece of butcher paper and lay out crayons or download one of our coloring sheets to keep the kids occupied when they’re done eating.
Add a Leafy Centerpiece
Bring your table to life by swapping out a traditional table runner for a homespun/rustic centerpiece. A leafy charger will add a little pop of green to your table. This will also help cut out the larger centerpieces such as a vase, that can sometimes deter conversations across the table.
Holiday Pro-Tip: After dinner is over, move your floral charger to your mantel to continue utilizing it even after all your leftovers are gone.
