Weekly Spotlight: Set the Table with Turkeys

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

This week, we’re finalizing the items we’ll need to set the table for Thanksgiving. And besides the most important turkey of them all, we’ve included a few extras to create the perfect look (plus a few non-turkey essentials) in this weekly spotlight.

The Starters

Harvest Melamine Dinnerware | Forged Loop 5PC Flatware Set | Pumpkin Wagon Salt & Pepper Set | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Flatware and dinnerware are obviously essential for dining, and luckily you can refresh your collection with new pieces from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. Our melamine collection features a few beautiful colors, but none is better for this time of year than the Harvest Orange. Our Flatware Set is handcrafted out of stainless steel that offers a unique look with appealing durability. And back for another year is the Pumpkin Wagon Salt & Pepper Shakers, a fun way to serve and store the two basic seasonings on your table.

The Dressings

It’s no secret that we love wool table runners, and the Turkey & Gourd Felt Applique Table Runner is one of our new favorites because of its rustic country aesthetic and neutral color tones. Plus, the whimsical turkey and gourd imagery is quite unique. To complement this table runner and the season, our Large Turkey Leaf Candle Holder (two shown below) can be dressed up with small plants, and placing a candle inside creates warm mood lighting perfect for dinnertime.

Thursday’s Theme: Simple Fall Centerpieces

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Leaf Harvest Table Runner | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe Fall Centerpiece – the perfect way to mark the harvest season, add a little more warmth to your home and prepare for visiting friends and family. For some autumn inspiration, today we’re offering up some ideas to create a simple yet stunning seasonal centerpiece.

Table Linens

Placemats and Table Runners can be used all over your table, of course, but you can use a Table Runner or a Placemat as a setting for a more elaborate centerpiece. Use matching fabric or complementing colors – whatever suits your style best.

Baskets and Containers

Ideal for floral arrangements, holding pumpkins or apples, flower blossoms, candy and other seasonal goods, the centerpiece possibilities are endless with baskets and decorative containers.

Minor Details

Small details can make any centerpiece look larger than life. Get out your favorite fall collectibles, display seasonally-inspired tealight holders and/or mini wreaths, and collect some pinecones and fallen leaves to scatter around your table (or place in a basket, vase or container). These can be quickly placed and require minimal freshening up throughout the season.
