Ideas for setting your Thanksgiving table

For those who love to entertain, Thanksgiving is the king of all entertaining holidays!  There are days of prep work, an extensive menu, and lots of fun ways to decorate.  At More Than Paper, we have some great ideas for setting your Thanksgiving table for those that really embrace this holiday. 



1.  Investing in a set of 10 or 12 personalized placemats for Thanksgiving makes a lot of sense for those that host this holiday every year.  The personalized placemats add a fun touch to the table and make it even more special.   They easily wipe clean and store easily. 

2.  Coordinating personalized bowls for soup and salad look great with your placemats. 

3. We found this rooster table runner at Pier 1 that can work for the season or all year round. 

4.  More Than Paper has a great selection of blank stock paper for the season, like this one with autumn leaves.  On one of our favorite crafty blogs, Lil'Luna, Krysten is sharing FREE THANKSGIVING Printables!  Print out a coloring page onto one of  More Than Paper's blank stock paper designs and place it with some crayons on the table for the kids. 

5. These gold napkin rings, also found at Pier 1, add a sophisticated touch to your table. 

6.  Mercury gold votive candles are hot right now!  They look great on any table, Thanksgiving or otherwise. 

7. We love this subway art found on Etsy.  It's an inexpensive piece of artwork that can go in a frame for the season.  Add it to the table or food buffet. 

8.  Popular party blog Catch My Party has a set of free thanksgiving printables.  We love the drink straws and "I'm thankful for..." cards.  Add a card to each place setting and have guests write down what they are thankful for!  It is a great way to stimulate dinner conversation. 

9. & 10.  We found these cupcakes and think they'd look great packaged in a treat bag with a personalized sticker as a take home treat for later!  We know there's a lot of pie to be eaten, but the day after Thanksgiving, a nice treat sounds perfect to us.  (Especially if all the pie is gone!) 

What are your ideas for setting the Thanksgiving table?
