Traditional Thanksgiving food such as the turkey can be served on gorgeous serving platters. Choose classic white serving plates and platters as they are versatile and can be used for formal as well as casual events. To serve turkey and other holiday roasts, use serving platters that are about 20 inches long. Thanksgiving dinnerware sets embellished with botanical prints are good choices for setting an elegant table. Plates and bowls decorated with vines, fall leaves and pumpkins are perfect for the fall festival. Create a harvest theme for your tabletop with these plates and bowls in botanical prints.
Thanksgiving dinnerware sets decorated with turkeys can add a playful touch to the table setting. Pair this themed serveware with classic white plates to create an elegant holiday tabletop. Soup tureens and gravy boats shaped like turkeys or pumpkins are some other delightful touches to add to the festive table. Use the holiday-inspired serving bowls and tureens to serve traditional Thanksgiving food such as green beans, mashed potatoes and pumpkin soup. To serve traditional Thanksgiving food like pies and fruit tarts, use dessert plates embellished with Thanksgiving motifs.
Choose Thanksgiving dinnerware sets that are dishwasher safe so cleanup becomes easier. The plates and bowls should also be microwaveable so warming leftovers is convenient. At the holiday table, set water goblets and wine glasses at all place settings. Bring home sets of good-quality glassware that can be paired with your festive dinnerware. Glass tumblers in amber hues are perfect for Thanksgiving celebrations. Use compote bowls if you wish to serve fruit salads or individual servings of dessert.
Give your table a rustic look as you use rattan baskets to serve bread and holiday rolls. Line the baskets with dinner napkins and use them as stylish serveware. These baskets can also be used to make basket-of-plenty centerpieces. Add fall produce and sheaves of wheat to these baskets for an easy and beautiful centerpiece. Use rattan chargers or placemats along with your dinnerware to give the tabletop a rustic theme.
