Thanksgiving Guide for a Grateful Hostess

Thanksgiving Guide for a Grateful Hostess

Thanksgiving: a time for gratitude, family, and of course, delicious side dishes. As the hostess, it's your pleasure to set the tone for food, ambiance and style to curate an unforgettable evening. This year, elevate your Thanksgiving gathering by combining style + comfort that invites your guests to do the same.

Set the tone with a stylish color palette

When it comes to comfort, think plush velvet cushions, soft cashmere throws, and oversized armchairs that invite your guests to sink in and relax. Opt for warm, earthy tones that evoke a sense of coziness, such as deep burgundy, rich chocolate brown, and warm golden hues. These colors will not only create a welcoming ambiance but also add a touch of sophistication to your space.

Dress for comfort + style as the hostess

As the hostess, you are the epitome of elegance and grace. Choose an outfit that reflects your personal style while still allowing you to move freely and comfortably. A sleek black set paired with statement accessories will make you the center of attention. Don't forget to complete your look with a pair of stylish yet comfortable heels that will take you from the kitchen to the dining room with ease. Willow | One Shoulder Lounge Set provides the perfect silhouette for hosting in style. 

Tablescapes to evoke warmth + conversation

Thanksgiving is not just about the food; it's about creating lasting memories with your loved ones. Set the table with crystal glasses, textured plates and a signature cocktail. Add a touch of warmth with candles, fresh herbs + dried citrus, creating an inviting atmosphere. Invite guests to share words of gratitude on their name plate that can also double as conversation starters - We love this bright table scape inspiration from @littlehouseonchestnut

Post-Dinner plans

After a day of cooking, entertaining, and indulging in delicious food, you deserve to relax. Invite guests to play a game of cards or enjoy a post-dinner stroll as you slip into something more comfortable. The Stella | Mohair Sweatshirt is the go-to. The cozy mohair texture offers unparalleled softness and warmth, while the universal dust grey color makes it easy to compliment your loungewear bottoms or Jeanie | Utility Wide-Leg Jeans

Serve up some seasonal cocktails + tasty (decaf) coffee drinks for your guests as you appreciate one another's company and recognize your blessings. A bourbon pear spritz, like this one, combine the fall flavors of pear + some spiced ginger ice cubes. [Inspo recipe by]

This Thanksgiving, create a comfortable and stylish atmosphere that will impress your guests and allow you to enjoy yourself as the hostess -- there is so much to be thankful for
