Save Time and Set your Table Early

You already have so much on your plate (no pun intended), while you prepare for guests to arrive for Thanksgiving dinner…set your table a day early and you’ll thank me later! No matter how many people you are cooking for, setting the table takes time. Why devote valuable minutes to folding napkins and stacking plates, Thanksgiving morning, when you could be turkey brining or taste testing your side dishes?


Setting the table is like putting together an outfit. It doesn’t matter if you are matching a pair of pants with a blouse, or napkin rings and plate chargers, the same principles apply! I decided to keep it simple this year and add only a few seasonal trinkets and name cards, to the table. I did not want to compete with the china’s natural beauty and elegance.

The Vintage Jewel 5-piece place setting by Lenox is a beautiful contrast of  blue, platinum and 24 karat gold against classic white china. Adorn your table with a refined tablecloth or slip an understated charger beneath your plates and you’re ready to entertain. With little to no effort, the Vintage Jewel collection and  flatware will regally transform any dining room.

Rather than the matching Vintage Jewel drinkware, I decided to add some Waterford Lismore Nouveau wine glasses to the mix. I swear crystal glasses somehow make the beverage that you are drinking taste better! There are not enough occasions to get fancy and drink wine out of crystal stemware…so do it up this year. Are you with me?

    Your table looks so magnificent! I have this dinnerware, and absolutely love it. It’s not too feminine, not too masculine. I really want a charger like yours to give it that art deco panache. Can you share where you purchased the charger?

    Thank you,
