15 Table Accessories for Your Fall and Thanksgiving Parties
Fall is one of the most food-centric seasons of the year. The resurgence of football brings watch-party potlucks, Halloween welcomes in candy-hungry trick-or-treaters, and Thanksgiving is dedicated entirely to breaking bread with loved ones. When it comes to the latter, you may be more concerned with perfecting your stuffing recipe and creating the ultimate brine for your turkey, but you shouldn't forget about your tabletop. Autumnally inspired linens and festive dinnerware can easily elevate your space so that it matches the season's cozy ambience.
From the falling foliage to seasonal fruits and vegetables, October through November is marked by subdued shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Thankfully, the season's rustic color wheel makes creating an elevated tablescape easy. From seasonally inspired centerpieces to turkey-themed dinner plates, the following table accessories will take your fall and Thanksgiving parties to the next level.
Hues of yellow and orange are everywhere during fall. These amber glasses are the perfect way to work both colors onto your tablescape. Sold in a set of six, these cups' textured beading will elevate every beverage from cocktails to water.
