Gilded Goodness for your Thanksgiving Table

thanksgiving table decor entertaining

Yesterday, Suzanne started off our holiday gift guide with a bang.  Gifts for a hostess had me thinking about Thanksgiving, an essential day and favorite of the fall season.  I've noticed more and more gold/gilded merchandise out there in the shopping world lately.  These items would really make any Thanksgiving table pop, and alludes to the metallic touch that Christmas brings less than one month later, although, gold is really perfect for an event any time of year!  I think the gilded look puts a twist on items so they're a bit more modern than classic gold, which can often look cheap when the item actually is not.  What do you think, could you see yourself entertaining with these items on Thanksgiving or a girl's cocktail night alike?

jewelry cage (you could use this as a centerpiece with a succulent inside, reuse for your jewelry post-holiday) // dipped flatware (who said flatware was boring?!) // salad plates (with positive messages) // wine stopper // highball glasses // playing cards (for between football games) // throw-on sale (for that tryptophan-induced nap after dinner) //ikat dessert plates (for grandma's apple pie) // elephant votive (may double as place holder) // sparkle coasters (necessary for any crowd)
