The Novogratz Guide to a Gorgeous (and Cheap!) Thanksgiving Table
A Novogratz Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. As a family of nine, we take this day each year to really be appreciative of everything the year has brought. Whether we're hosting a big dinner party for extended family and friends or having a smaller gathering with just the nine of us, we try to make each Thanksgiving tablescape unique and beautiful.
Here are a few tips for a Thanksgiving table that everyone will love.
Get into the Festive Spirit
We don't claim to be the best cooks, but what better way to feel more confident in the kitchen than to don a great apron? We designed this one for the whole family.
Keep Your Guests Warm
Use Mismatched Plates
Vintage plates of all colors and patterns keep a table interesting and help solve the problem of matching china for a big group. Look at your local flea market or even on sites like eBay.
Make Your Place Settings Special
Come up with a unique take-away for each of your guests and put it at the table's place settings. This year, each of our guests is getting one of our virtues patches.
Mix Up Your Centerpieces
We love using candles of all shapes and sizes amidst the greenery and flowers. Not only does it create a warm ambiance, but you can literally pull the candles from your house or buy ones you'll use again. We're including our Family Candle in this year's tablescape.
