We all know that Thanksgiving can be stressful enough, let alone worrying about planning out the perfect table to go with your delicious meal. Thanks to my friends over at Oriental Trading, I’ve pulled together some of my favorite Fall/Thanksgiving themed items to create an easy to put together table that your guests will love. If you’re wondering how you can get the same easy-to-put-together table, here are the items that I used to create this fun Fall festive table:
I always get a disposable tablecloth when I’m having guests over for the holidays. It makes cleanup a lot easier, and you don’t have to worry about spill staining your good tablecloths, especially if you’ll be having young guests over! The Thanksgiving Leaves Tablecloth will give your table a decorative display for the main course! A wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner or any autumn event, this large plastic Thanksgiving Leaves Tablecloth will easily let you bring the beauty of fall indoors for all to enjoy. (Tablecloth dimensions are 54″ x 108″)
Paper plates are another great way to make setup easy and cleanup effortless. No matter what occasion you’re shopping for, these paper plates are perfect for parties and occasions of all sizes! A colorful addition to birthdays, wedding receptions, showers, graduations and other events like your fabulous Thanksgiving gathering. The larger Chocolate Brown Square Paper Dinner Plates are perfect for the main course while the smaller Orange Square Paper Dessert Plates are perfect for desserts or smaller items like rolls and biscuits.
You’ll obviously need some napkins to help contain all the holiday mess and for our Thanksgiving setup I got the Chocolate Brown Luncheon Napkins and paired them with the Orange Beverage Napkins to keep the look pretty similar to our plates.
One of my most DREADED things to clean up after a holiday meal is the silverware. I generally dislike cleaning silverware as it is, and after a holiday celebration there is SO MUCH silverware! These Premium Metallic Gold Cutlery pieces are going to be a TOTAL lifesaver this Thanksgiving! Not only are these pieces durable and heavyweight, they’re also quite pretty to look at and make a great touch of shine to the table. Includes eight 7″ spoons, eight 7-3/4″ knives and eight 7-1/2″ forks. Plastic. (2 dozen per unit)
Holiday celebrations always seem to leave stacks and stacks of dirty cups to wash and these Orange Paper Cups are the answer to my personal cup hell. They eliminate breakage and are disposable, so they make for easy cleanup.
Just to keep the Thanksgiving gathering civil (we all know how family members can disagree sometimes) I always suggest place cards to take the guess work out of sitting down to dinner. These super cute Thanksgiving Place Cards are made from the Thanksgiving Place Card Craft Kit and were super easy to make. They take just a few minutes to put together and add a super festive touch to the table’s decor.
These Gold Glittered Pumpkin Votive Holders are probably my favorite items I got for our dinner party. They shine and sparkle and add a great touch of Fall to our setup. You can use standard candles or battery operated candles, whatever your personal preference is.
Last but not least, I ordered some Small Hay Bales as well as the Metallic Mini Pumpkin & Gourd Assortment to give a super cute mini-pumpkin-patch feel to the table. Whether you use one small hay bale or stack a few, this miniature hay bale is a versatile decorating piece. Add the little pumpkins and gourds and you’ve got an adorable touch to your Thanksgiving feast.
This is just a very small fraction of what Oriental Trading has to help make your Thanksgiving epic, make sure you check out everything they have to offer to find the items that are perfect for your holiday get-togethers.
