How to Set a Picture-Perfect Thanksgiving Table

Author Your Holiday Inspiration Guru | November 11, 2019

Beautiful Thanksgiving tables don’t come together overnight. Long before your family gathers to give thanks, there’s cooking, baking, and decorating to be done. Save time and money on tradition with Market Street’s full range of holiday services, including complete holiday dinners prepared by our in-house chefs, custom pies baked to perfection, and centerpieces perfectly designed by expert florists. Follow this guide to recreate one of our favorite Thanksgiving tables, designed to make the season of gratitude feel less like a chore and more like an occasion.


Start with Seasonal Decor

Set the table with warm colors and rustic fall elements to create an instantly inviting ambiance. Details like layering wooden chargers under your dinner plates, placing decorative pumpkins, or lighting a few candles, will make your table appealing to all the senses. Elevate the look with golden flatware and serveware, when possible.

Holiday Pro-Tip: Place cards not really your style? Write your guests’ names on gold painted leaves and position them on your plates for a useful, decorative element.



Add a Pop of Freshness

Instantly enhance the look of your table with a complementary floral centerpiece. Sunflowers with pampas grass is an excellent choice, as the colors and textures work well with a harvest-inspired theme. Make sure to visit our in-house floral designers when shopping for the holidays.

Holiday Pro-Tip: Ask our floral designers to create an arrangement in a short vase so conversation is easy at your dinner table.



Let Us Do the Cooking

Spend less time hustling in the kitchen and more time hosting by letting our team of chefs assist with your holiday menu. From fully-cooked turkeys to gourmet fixings like mashed potatoes with gravy, praline sweet potatoes, cranberry relish, homestyle cornbread dressing, and green beans, we have everything you need to make your Thanksgiving table taste as good as it looks.
