Will you need to include a side table to accomodate more guest, a children’s table, or for beverages and desserts this Thanksgiving? If you do I say don’t treat the side table as an after thought – Make it an integral and beautiful part of your decor.
Maybe your Thanksgiving will be an intimate dinner for two? How about setting up a small table for two instead of sitting amongst empty chairs at the dining table.
There are many ways to make a side table special. Here are a few suggestions:
1. Adding a small vase of flowers and/or candles works wonders.
2. For children I add plastic placemats, use plastic cups or I add a glass top to protect the tablecloth.
3. For a beverage table I always place a large tray on the table and place the ice bucket and beverage bottles on the tray.
This is what my Thanksgiving side table will look like this year.
Now all that’s needed is food to enjoy a wonderful dinner.
I hope the suggestions help and you make your guest comfortable too. Even if they don’t sit at the big table.
Until next time …
