6 Ideas for Your Thanksgiving Tablescape

When it comes to your holiday table, functionality and simplicity are key ingredients. When Rachael hosts gatherings, she likes to give the food the spotlight, so everyone can easily dig in, enjoy, and spend quality time together.

Make the Food the Centerpiece

Thanksgiving is all about making memories with loved ones and enjoying good food, so don't sweat the table setting. Instead, cultivate conversation by removing tall centerpieces so everyone can see each other, and let the meal decorate the table. Start with a simple base like a solid beige tablecloth. From there, choose beautiful dishes in a traditional fall color palette that perfectly display your delicious food. Try a round brown casserole dish to give your spread some extra flair, or keep your tablescape sleek with this square white casserole. Both are oven-to-table ready for more convenience (and fewer dishes!). Finally, present yummy sides like mashed potatoes or salad in this pumpkin-hued au gratin dish from Rachael Ray.

Round out the autumn colors with a cranberry red dinnerware set. This 16-piece set is a gorgeous addition to any holiday party or birthday celebration, and it's practical for everyday use, too. If your Thanksgiving tablescape needs a little something extra, finish off your display by interspersing fall leaves for a festive touch that brings everything together.
