The Season of Thanks: A Guide to the Perfect Thanksgiving Holiday

It’s the time of year to give thanks. This season is full of reflection on all that we have to be grateful for. At the top of our lists of thanks are friends, family, and the opportunities to come together and celebrate the relationships we so cherish. What better way to say thank you to the ones we hold dear than putting on a perfect Thanksgiving meal for family and friends? At Ennis, we want to help you wow this holiday season and truly say thank you to those you love with style, elegance, and class.

A table fit for a feast. A perfect Thanksgiving gettogether starts with the perfect family dining room table. When it comes to a Thanksgiving dining room table, we say the bigger, the better.  Stickly Furniture’s Haverford Dining Table is a must-have. Not only does this table impress in size with three 16” aproned leaves allowing for the table to expand to 126”, but it also packs a punch in elegance and style. This feature room piece has a solid mahogany top and a unique pedestal support with fine brass finishings. This is just one of the beautiful dining room tables featured at Ennis Fine Furniture.

Pull up a seat. Seating your guests is made easy with Ennis Fine Furniture’s abundant collection of traditional dining room chairs, benches, and less traditional seating options that are both stylish and comfortable. Bench seating is very popular during the holidays for not only versatility and ability to adapt to may spaces, but also for the close, comforting feeling benches bring into a room. Stickley Furniture’s Upholstered Dining Room Benches are a great add on to accommodate your extra loved ones this Thanksgiving.

Play up the heads of the table and give your honored guests the royal treatment by adding elegant and upscale Thomasville Fiorita Chairs to your holiday arrangement. These unexpected add-ons will create a five-star feel to your Thanksgiving table.

Serve up your meal in style. From your plates, bowls, and silverware, to your dinnerware, cups, and gravy boats, how you serve your Thanksgiving meal is almost as important as the food served upon it. After spending hours preparing a Thanksgiving meal with love and attention, it’s important to pay as much attention to your presentation. When it comes time to unveil your Turkey, you can’t go wrong with simple and elegant snow white Global Views Platters. These will add a touch of class with the crisp white presentation, while also making sure the attention is on the perfectly browned main attraction. For drink presentation, we would recommend opting for decanters. Global Views Leo Bulb Decanters and matching glassware are the perfect addition to any holiday table.

Don’t forget the details. Picking the appropriate table décor to set the holiday mood is a must. This year, ditch the traditional red poinsettias and instead impress your guests with some fine art pieces that won’t soon be forgotten. Start by playing on the traditional red of the holiday florals with a bright Fluted Oval Compote from Global Views. Next, add in Uttermost Hazuki Metal Sculptures. Made of hand forged metal, these sculptures feature a distressed gold leaf finish with dark espresso undertones and a light tan glaze. The beautiful natural leaf shapes will allow the last lingering of fall to fill the room before the winter holiday season officially begins and snow takes the place of warm autumn leaves.

From our family to yours on this holiday, Happy Thanksgiving. We hope your holiday is blessed with friends, family, good food, and cheer!
