Ah Thanksgiving. A time to remember those sometimes wacky, sometimes touching, sometimes just right holiday meals. Now it’s time to make new memories. It can be a lot of fun to dress up your Thanksgiving table with vintage items. From a vintage turkey platter, to a turkey centerpiece, to a lovely old cake stand. Make it beautiful. Make it fun. Make it your own!
A centerpiece can be a fruit and nut filled cornucopia, a vintage turkey figurine, a primitive dough bowl or maybe antique candle holders. And don’t forget to put it all on top of a beautiful tablecloth!
For your dishes you might want a lovely old set of porcelain dishes. Limoges maybe? Amber glass? Or it can be fun to collect varied souvenir plates all year long then give each guest there own individualized place setting. Just make sure those souvenir plates are food-friendly, as some are not.
Desert? As good as your pumpkin pie is, an antique sterling silver pie server will make it even better!
You’ve got one more week. Come on into Midtown Mercantile Merchants. We’re open every day until Thanksgiving and you can find a lot of things to dress up your holiday table.
