Thanksgiving Fall Table
If you’re anything like me, Thanksgiving dinner is all about the leftovers. At our house, Mom cooks the main meal, and Amy and I bring a dish or two. We always make sure to bring enough for everyone to take home a little nibble for later. It’s really the best part!
Occasionally we’re swamped by leftovers. That’s when it’s time to host a leftovers party with friends! This is a relaxed get-together. Don’t worry about bringing half of a pumpkin pie, or a few slices of stuffed holiday loaf, and someone is going to love crunching on that last cup of green beans. This is time to break out the wine and chill with friends.
This may be a potluck of leftovers but it’s still fun to set the table for fall and let guests know you care. Give Thanksgiving’s tablecloth a quick shake and top it with shimmery gold leaf chargers. Place the Kismet dishes out with each charming, artistic patterned border.
Add water to your centerpiece and enjoy your friends!
Earthy Textures of Fall
Maybe you’ve enjoyed your blue dishes all summer long and wonder how to gracefully move into fall? No problem!
Take Kismet’s summery blue place setting and let it flex it’s jewel-colored muscles. The interior designer in you probably knows that blue and orange are opposite on the color wheel. That dynamic tension really delivers in this table scape set for fall.
Set the fall table with rich textures like a rattan placemat. Top it with Kismet dishes in traditional blue and white. Add a centerpiece with orange pumpkins, fall leaves and greenery, and sparkling metallic votives.
Enjoy an Indian summer by setting the table on your covered porch or patio.
Around The World Party Fall Party
How about hosting a party to reminisce about your travels? Or better yet, to plan your next adventure!
Set the table with shimmery gold chargers and linen napkins. The Kismet dishes are set off by my husband’s grandmother’s silver server. You probably noticed the artistic beaded edge on the dishes repeats the traditional bead pattern on the charger and silver server!
Include your travel mementos like a passport, or travel maps. I love flipping through my passport to see the national stamps from each country. Sometimes that border experience contains a few fun stories. We’re still laughing about the time my then 9 year old son Ian was renamed Jan when we entered Bolivia!
Now is a great time to pull out those souvenirs that you have collected. Use them in a beautiful centerpiece or at each place setting to get the conversation flowing.
Setting a fall table and hosting a travel theme is perfect for a book club party. Think about where the story took place and see if you can find a few travel tokens that will sweep you into the story!
