Thanksgiving is one of the best times to go all out with a fun and festive tablescape, as, after all, the big day really does revolve around the dining table.

When creating the perfect tablescape, it is always best to plan your design in layers; a beautiful blend of practical items (think plates, glassware, flatware etc.) with more fun, decorative items (tablecloths, place cards, candles and vases of foliage) will make for a successful design that is both functional and beautiful.

A Thanksgiving dinner is of often comprised of an assortment of different dishes, so the more serveware you have to hand, we think, the better (especially if you're hosting a large number of people).

West Elm have a beautiful selection of serving boards, platters and utensils that can be used to serve up your Thanksgiving dishes in style, and, of course, they can then be used all year round when hosting and entertaining, too.

Just as important, if not more important, than having a fabulous collection of tableware and serveware, the right cookware can make all the difference when cooking and preparing a stand-out Thanksgiving dinner (good luck to all those who will be cooking on the big day – no pressure.)

West Elm not only stock their own beautiful product designs, they also represent a whole host of other brands too. As their iconic Dutch Oven has been voted our best Dutch oven by our product testers, we couldn't not include Le Creuset cookware in our West Elm Thanksgiving round-up – so you can shop only the very best.


What decorations do you put up for Thanksgiving?

Traditional Thanksgiving decorations include plenty of pretty pumpkins (both real and faux) and styling both the inside and outside of your home with fall flowers and foliage. From Thanksgiving wreaths and garlands, to pumpkin table centerpieces and outdoor pumpkin lights, Thanksgiving decor is often centered around the beauty of the natural world.

Of course, not all Thanksgiving decor has to be pumpkin themed – or Turkey themed for that matter. You can style your home with decor that makes your space feel more inviting, cozy and warm for the season, using candles, pillows or throws, and you can even go all out with fun party decor, such as balloons and bunting, on the big day – how you decorate your home for Thanksgiving is completely up to you.

As well as their stylish Thanksgiving collection, West Elm have a beautiful range of modern Halloween decor – see our top picks from the West Elm Halloween collection in our dedicated feature, and, they have also just released their Holiday collection – is it time to start thinking about Christmas already? We think so.
