This weekend we have our first of two Thanksgiving celebrations and I’ve been planning my table all week! As much as I love going all out with a fancy table for the holidays, this year I’m going super simple with a buffalo check tablecloth, my grandmother’s silver candlesticks, my beloved French wine glasses, bamboo flatware and tortoise drinking glasses I found at an antique store a few years back. Simple, but super chic, elevating the pieces we use every day and dressing them up with a few special touches for the occasion. I know that the food and family that gather around my table are the most important part of the holiday, but I also love to show my loved ones just how much I adore them by setting a beautiful table, as well. The weather has been uncooperative this week for any good shots of my table, so instead I’m sharing a few snaps of my treasured pieces that I’ll be using tomorrow; the only thing I bought for the big day was an inexpensive buffalo check tablecloth; read through to the bottom for links to similar items:

Myrtle topiary / Similar silver candlesticks HERE and HERE / Similar salt and pepper shakers / French wine glasses / Similar tortoise drinking glasses / Similar bamboo flatware / Buffalo check tablecloth

Myrtle topiary – it’s no secret how much I love these; I think a grouping of them in the middle of the table is such a beautiful alternative to a floral centerpiece, as much for the fresh pop of green they bring to an all-neutral table, but also for their sculptural quality!

Silver candlesticks – every holiday table needs candlelight and simple, classic silver candlesticks are like jewelry for the table! Love THESE and THESE.

Silver salt and pepper shakers – I am always on the lookout for antique shakers; I have quite a few pairs that I scored for less than $15. Something so simple as beautiful salt and pepper shakers add an elevated touch to an every day table setting.

French wine glasses – we use these ALL the time, for both water and wine and the kids love to bring them out for their birthdays, big days at school, etc., so they can toast! I love them for their elegance and the fact that they look so much more expensive than they are!

Tortoise drinking glasses – I found a set of twelve with a matching pitcher a few years back on final sale at an antique store; they’re heavy and durable and add a beautiful pop of color for a holiday table! This is a great deal for a set!

Bamboo flatware – Beautiful, classic and the perfect amount of texture!

Buffalo check tablecloth – I like to use an inexpensive tablecloth for big gatherings that can be washed easily so that I don’t have to worry about stains. This one comes in many colors and looks like linen!
