The most memorable Thanksgiving gatherings always have a well-set table. In addition to cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu, you should consider the plates, serving utensils and glasses, as well as serving platters, gravy boats, napkins and more as part of the experience.

What’s Thanksgiving without gravy? Serve an amazing Thanksgiving gravy in this lovely antique white gravy boat, which will perfectly complement the dinner plates we’re recommending. The boat comes with a matching platter to catch any runaway drips.
Raise a toast to good company and good food with this set of crystal wine goblets. No matter what you’re all sipping (we recommend this delicious spiced cranberry drink), everyone at your table will feel elegant with these glasses in hand.
Carving a turkey is no easy feat (learn how to carve the right way!), which is why you need high-quality cutting utensils at your Thanksgiving feast. This beautiful carving set includes a pewter carving fork and knife, and the utensils will become a cherished family heirloom.
Swap out paper napkins for these beautiful linen napkins. The deep, rich color will make your table settings pop, and the linen fabric is pre-washed so it’s incredibly soft to the touch.
Not only do tablecloths brighten up your table, but they also make cleanup significantly easier. So adorn your table with a traditional pick like this linen tablecloth. It comes in a variety of seasonal hues, though we’re partial to the red wine color for this table setting.
If you have a haphazard array of mismatched tableware, it might be time to upgrade to a more uniform set. This vintage-inspired flatware comes in a traditional pewter finish to match other items on the table, and these simple utensils work well as everyday dinnerware, too.
