Best of Pinterest : Thanksgiving
November 17, 2015

It is that time of year again! Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and here at Save the Date® we have gathered the best tips for an easy planning experience and a gorgeous table that will wow your guests! So whether this is your first time hosting or you’re already a pro, Save the Date® has got you covered. We’ve put together an inspiration board that will tempt you to experiment with everything from color palettes to floral arrangements AND give you the “how to” cheat sheet to make sure you don’t forget a thing. We’ve also got tips on guest etiquette and great gift ideas for your host/hostess!

To get in on the fun, post a picture of your Save the Date® inspired table setting, and tag @savethedatenyc for a chance to be featured on our Instagram!

See below for a sample of some of our favorite pins, and be sure to visit our full board here for more!


For a fresh take on the traditional table setting try experimenting with a neutral color palette or adding a craft paper table cloth to the mix!

If you’re more inclined to use color, try a fresh floral arrangement that combines fall colors with pinks and purples. Adding candles is also a great way to add dimension to your table!

If this is your first time hosting be sure to check out these hacks from Buzzfeed. Some of our favorites are the big batch cocktail recipes, the food prep schedule, and the all-important turkey thaw guide!

Most importantly, you don’t want to show up empty handed! Whether you’re bringing champagne, a candle, or a new set of coasters, be sure your host/hostess knows how appreciated their efforts are.  Below is a short list of some of our favorites:

1. Jo Malone™ Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Candle
2. Vintage Flower Storage Bowls Gift Set of 5
3. Everyday Cotton Throw

And last but not least, don’t forget to be a gracious guest.  Be sure to offer you help when it’s time to prep and clean up, keep phone use to a minimum, and always send a thank you note.
