Setting the Thanksgiving Table

Pheasant Placemats

I have rounded up some very pretty finds for setting the Thanksgiving table. I got in the mood from ordering some pieces from the John Derian for Target Thanksgiving Collection.

BTW, there are still some great pieces from the collection available online here. A few are picks shown below.

I love the stunning pheasant placemats pictured above. These would set the stage for a very sophisticated Thanksgiving table. Find them here.

This is a great price on the iconic Spode Woodland Turkey Dinner Plate.

Spode Woodland Turkey Dinner Plate

I highly recommend these turkey dinner napkins from the John Derian Thanksgiving Collection. They are cotton and linen with a lovely feel and drape. Each has a different turkey pictured and they are piped in green. A great deal at under $4 a napkin. Order online - free ship with orders of $35 - stores have very limited stock from this very popular collection.

These fabric gourds are darling. They would be great in a centerpiece or one at each place setting.

5 Piece Gourd Set

If you are having a kid's table at Thanksgiving, this kid's set with turkeys and gourds would be perfect.

  1. At your suggestion, I ordered the John Derian napkins, the tea towels and the beautiful candle with a turkey design. I am thrilled with all! I have beautiful Williams-Sonoma embroidered napkins that I've used for years, but these JD napkins are versatile enough to use for a more casual table setting, at a childrens' table or elevated with fine china. Thank you!!

  2. I bought the pheasant placemats a few years ago to go with my Spode Woodland pheasant dishes. They look terrific!
