A Proper Table Setting

After I had written the last post, I had realized that it might be helpful for you all to know where to find these items that are supposedly going to occupy your Thanksgiving table. I do, however, also realize that you might just have the basics already ... but you know what? It never hurts to window-shop and it certainly never hurts to change things up.

Here are a few table items that I am coveting for my own Thanksgiving table.

Caterer's 12-Piece Dinnerware Set - $39.00 - $49.00

This is great for those of you who will be having a large crowd coming to your house for the holidays. And the durable storage boxes are a big plus.

White Scalloped Serving Bowl for $20.00

Serve fruits such as clementines, pears, grapes, or persimmon in these bowls and you've got an instant centerpiece for your table.

Fleur De Lys Dinnerware - $10.00-$16.00

Fleur De Lys Serving Bowl, Square for $38.00

Into-The-Woods Butter Dish for $28.00

One of the fancier butter dishes I've seen and now need to acquire.

Sur La Table® Porcelain Gravy Boat for $19.95

There should always be a plate underneath the gravy boat or else you'll get gravy everywhere!

Amalfi 5-Piece Amalfi Flatware Set for $114.90

Pricey but so beautiful. Love the detailed embellishments.

Vintage Hotel Flatware - 5 Piece Placesetting
Vintage Hotel Flatware - 5 Piece Placesetting for $79.00

The fact that these pieces are "vintage and found" make them so special and unique.

Olive Wood Five-Piece Flatware Setting for $250.00

Again, pricey but have you ever seen anything like it? It's rustic and warm but elegant all at the same time.

Maxfield Flatware
Maxfield Flatware - $95.00 - $349.00

Love that each piece is slightly different giving it that collected-over-time feel.

water goblet tulip
Water Goblet, Tulip Stemware for $28.00

I think these might be the ones that Ina Garten uses...

Edge Wine Glasses for $11.95

I think Crate and Barrel has some of the best selections of well-priced drinkwares. Here are a few more of my favs from them.

Nora Wine Glasses for $9.95

Viv Wine Glasses for $3.95

These are the ones we've got and they are absolutely wonderful. Although, the Edge Wine Glasses would be great for the holidays...

butternut and warm gray runner
butternut and warm gray runner for $72.00

Toile Au Couleur Tablecloths, Khaki
Toile Au Couleur Tablecloths, Khaki
$95.00 - $115.00

Marseille Tablecloths, Dijon
Marseille Tablecloths, Dijon
$35.00 - $62.00

Aileen Table Runner
Aileen Runner
$119.00 - $154.00

If you've been really good followers of my blog, you'll remember that I did a whole post on Table runners in September, but I had to add the ones above since they are perfect for Thanksgiving.

I'm going to have to stop here since it's starting to get really long. There will be a Part 2 so wait for more Table Setting goodies!
