Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away? The holidays always sneak up on us, but we are so excited to kick off the season with a delicious Turkey dinner with all the fixings.

Our Home for the Holidays menu was handcrafted by our chefs with recipes from their childhoods. From the cornbread stuffing to the sweet glazed carrots, each recipe holds hints of the past with fresh ingredients and the flavors you expect from Copper Canyon & Stanford Grill.

Of course, we can’t forget the wine! A Pinot Noir goes wonderfully with a turkey dinner, though many choose to start off with a white or some bubbly during the prep time.

If you’re looking for a simple way to decorate your table, try this elegant look with festive fall leaves and tea lights sitting in copper mugs. It adds the perfect amount of color to your table while leaving plenty of room for the most important part, the food!

Holiday Tablescape

If you’re stuck on ideas of how to elegantly decorate your table this holiday season, we have a couple ideas to wow your guests.

Seeing the incorporation natural elements in a tablescape is always lovely. We suggest using foliage of the season like pine leaves, mistletoe, pine cones, or even cranberries! Use your imagination, but a run of pine tree branches up and down the table, with a sprinkling of cranberries for a pop of color is very festive. 

That’s where another idea comes into play: use the colors of the season as well. Plenty of red, green, gold, and silver. These can be incorporated most easily with the linens. The look of elegant gold napkins at each table setting is always eye-catching. 

Hopefully these few quick tips will come in handy and spark more table decor ideas! Be sure to share with us your favorite holiday decorating ideas.

Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving Table Decor Ideas

Thanksgiving is fast-approaching and it’s about time to start putting the finishing touches together, tablescape included. Here are a few tablescape ideas we think will take your holiday decor to the next level and bring in the spirit of the holidays.

Reflecting the warm colors of the season like reds, oranges, and yellows always gets us in the Thanksgiving spirit! You can use these colors in the linens on the table and don’t be afraid to mix and match! Rustic tables are my favorite. For example, really simple glassware, a wooden table without a tablecloth and using herbs as a garland runner is just stunning. Not only does it look gorgeous, it brings in the smell of fall with the rosemary, sage, lavender and thyme bunches.

Another great way to incorporate the season into your table decor is to take advantage of the fall foliage and its harvest. Placing fallen autumn leaves of all colors up and down the table, as well as a scattering of cranberries for a pop of color gives your table a nice warming and traditional feel.

Replacing traditional candle votive holders with hollowed out pumpkins is another creative and festive way to incorporate the season into your tablescape. Highlight those squash and pumpkins!

Also, I always think making a photo collage with pictures of dinner guests is a nice conversation starter as well as great way to show your appreciation of them!

Happy Thanksgiving!
