Whether you’re gearing up for an intimate dinner party or planning a big holiday bash, I believe adding personal touches and a beautiful table presentation always makes your guests feel like you’ve made things special on their behalf.  My husband and I traditionally host our combined families for Thanksgiving every year, so I am always looking for some new inspiration. I love the tradition of pulling out heirloom pieces that I know graced Thanksgiving tables of past generations, but I also love creating new stories and adding some modern looks.

I’ve been searching for a unique charcuterie platter for a while and fell in love with the Wooden Feast Boards by WoodKith out of Atlanta, GA.  They rescue their wood from fallen trees or trees that must be removed and then hand craft and customize each board. Each board is completely unique, depending on the actual wood, age and finish. One-of-a-kind, just like our Nilah Leather Tops!

I also think the organic (made by hand) stoneware plates from Handmade Studio TN would be striking and add some depth to a traditional tablescape. These would be stunning and give a nice contrast to lighter-colored serveware in white or gold.

How do you celebrate the art of entertaining with family & friends? Ten days and counting!
