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!

Man Cave Must Haves for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking up a special gift for the men in your life. This year, instead of the photo keepsakes, sports gear, fishing poles, and camping accessories, how about you try something new: give the gift of a man cave. We’re not talking dartboards and mini-fridges in the garage. No, this year Dad deserves a space that is as mature, entertaining, and unique as he is. This year, spoil the man in your life with a mature man cave, a sophisticated space that will show him just how much you appreciate all he does and who he is.

Must Have #1: The Comfy Couch. Dads work hard, and play hard. Whether it’s a long day at work, raking and mowing the lawn, constant household projects and honey-do lists, or practicing baseball with the kids, it seems they’re always on the go. When it’s finally time to take a break, a big, leather, overstuffed couch is the answer. The Hooker Furniture Carlisle Power Motion Sofa is all that and more. In addition to the highest-quality red leather, this must-have piece of furniture also reclines. What says relaxation more than reclining leather after a long day? Finish the couch off with some Surya Accessories decorative pillows and an Otso  throw to up to comfort and add a touch of style.  Want to share the sofa with your closest friends and family while you watch the latest action thriller?  The American Leather Comfort Theater sofa with Infinity System™ allows dad and guests to independently adjust their seating in infinite ways that offer supreme comfort.

Must Have #2: The Bar & Game Table. No man cave is complete without a bar. Take the typical bar cart to the next level for the Father’s Day man cave with the I.M. David Bar and Game Room Blackjack Bar. This shapeshifting staple piece transforms from elegant bar to blackjack table with ease, making it an ideal piece for any occasion. Add some I.M. David Bar and Game Room Bar Stools to really give this space an upscale pub feel. Don’t forget the finishing touched. Global Views Ribbed Decanters are elegant yet masculine decoration pieces, and are also the perfect solution for storing whiskey, scotch, or water.

Must Have #3: Entertainment is Key. Whether it’s watching the big game, playing a video game, or settling in to watch the evening news, an entertainment center is absolutely a necessity in any man cave. The Stickley Home Entertainment TV center with shelving is an excellent choice. Not only does this piece fit a TV that will meet Dad’s viewing needs, but the shelving serves as an ideal place for Dad to showcase all of his photos, pieces or art, and collections from Father’s Day past. Set it up with his favorite keepsakes ahead of time for a real Father’s Day surprise that won’t quickly be forgotten.

Must Have #4: The “Grandfather” Clock. A tall clock is surely a staple in any upscale man cave space. Stickley Furniture’s Ashville clock is an impressive piece that is sure to make an impact in the room. The Asheville clock is derived from a towering floor clock that stands in the legendary Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. This piece will truly make this room stand apart.

Must Have #5: In the Details. The perfect finishing detail for the mature man cave is a carefully crafted, quality floor covering. You can’t go wrong (and Dad will agree) with the Stickley Dahlia floor covering. This piece has it all, from quality materials to intricate design details, and the color palate is just right for Dad’s special space. Complete the décor of the space with a rustic touch. Incorporate some Uttermost Hoyt Wooden Wall Panels to really give Dad a modern rustic feel.

Remember, when creating the perfect space for the man in your life this Father’s Day, strike a balance between function, style, and comfort. Most importantly, be sure to have the man in your life check back to the Ennis Fine Furniture site before Mother’s Day for tips on creating a home retreat space just for you!
