How to Decorate for Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving Table Settings
24 November, 2020

Yes, Thanksgiving will look a little different this year. But when it comes to decorations, we say: go all out, as you’re able. Because one thing we CAN control is creating a festive environment you’ll be proud to show off on Zoom.

Here are some easy ways to dress your table:

Place cards
Even if your family adheres to unofficial “assigned seats,” place cards turn a meal into an occasion. Little helpers can customize them to each attendee, and it’s an easy craft that will keep them away from the kitchen.

Recyclable table runner
For a rustic chic look, consider layering butcher paper over your finest tablecloth. This also makes clean up super easy: after dessert, you can just strip it off and recycle all the portions that are free of food stains. Plus, if you provide crayons, it can even become a collaborative masterpiece.

Light the mood
We know that a touch of ambiance goes a long way. That’s why you can dim and adjust our C by GE Tunable White Smart Bulbs to your preferred level of brightness. Plus, you can tune them to the perfect light temperature. For Thanksgiving, we suggest a warm, soft glow that will cast your feast in a very cozy light.

Small centerpieces
Whether you’re a traditional cornucopia type or want to incorporate natural elements from your neighborhood, small centerpieces add a festive flair. Keeping them compact means you don’t have to lean around them to have a conversation—and it also frees up valuable real estate for all that food.

With these simple tips, you can make the best of this year’s celebration.

Happy Thanksgiving!
