Whether you’re hosting your extended family, immediate family, or setting the Thanksgiving table for two this year – there’s always room to make it beautiful and memorable. We’ll be heading to my Mother-in-Law’s at the beach for a small family gathering. To compliment the mains, I’ll be whipping up my famous mashed potatoes, corn and a veggie tray. Maybe some cheese to spice things up as well! I’m just looking forward to being surrounded by loved ones for the day, and enjoying some quality time.

Thanksgiving Table for Two | The Setting

When planning your quaint Thanksgiving table for two, think about layering your settings. Start with your tablecloth. I picked up this beauty at a local Madison Mathews sale. Sadly it doesn’t look like they currently sell linens online, but always worth checking out if you’re local to Charleston. I highly recommend a few of my favorite online linen sources for printed fabrics: India Amory + Amanda Lindroth. Or of course Etsy. From there, I love adding a bit of texture by way of a woven placemat.

When it comes to plates, I typically lean to the side of a solid {albeit, ‘basic’} dinner plate, paired with a seasonal or colorful salad plate that brings some personality to the table. With this set up, I opted for a classic very Thanksgiving-esk accent plate. I wouldn’t normally recommend purchasing salad plates that are this seasonally specific, however sometimes you can’t pass up a good William Sonoma sale. They always deliver when it comes to their seasonal selection of tabletop year after year.

Last, but most definitely my favorite aspect of setting a Thanksgiving table for two, is your glassware selection. I always say – have fun with glassware! There’s always a time and a place for your traditional clear glass trio, but when I entertain, I find my glassware is the place I most like to infuse texture, varying heights + pops of color. While some may not be as passionate about glassware, it’s the element that brings a concept full circle.

What to Wear for Thanksgiving

I think Thanksgiving {and the holidays in general} feel a little different for all of us this year. So you may be opting to take a more casual approach for your Thanksgiving lunch or dinner. However for me, dressing to the occasion gives me the feeling of normalcy, so in true Kristin fashion, I’ll be rocking a fall dress for our family festivities. Whether you find yourself at a Thanksgiving table for two, or amongst a small group of family + friends, here are a few outfits ideas that suit the holiday.
