Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, and simple joys. This gives us the chance to slow down, enjoy delicious comfort food and relax with good company. A chic and cheerful table makes this holiday event that much better, but nothing prevents you to spice up your Thanksgiving tablescape with a more sophisticated approach to give thanks in style. Here are seven ideas to add your own sophisticated touch to your Thanksgiving gathering:
1. Platinum accents instead of gold or copper
Gold and warm color accents are staples of fall entertaining. Give the tradition a twist and use platinum instead for a more contemporary look. You can find platinum bowls here on Amazon.

2. White pumpkins
White pumpkins are becoming increasingly more popular for holidays. Maybe it’s the allure of the romantic white shade that makes these stylish accessories a must-have item. Or maybe it’s the fact that white is an easier color to match than their orange counterpart?

An accumulation of up-cycled glass bottles as candleholders will give height to your tablescape.

5. Feather place cards
Some of the loveliest tables aren’t necessary about the china or silver, but rather the natural elements that suggest the occasion. Use beautiful pheasant feathers for their delicate pattern and tie them with a ribbon knot with a place card attached.

7. A minimal twist on classic place settings
If you’re more from the traditional side, you can still give an understated and sophisticated look to your place setting by playing with contrasting white plates with thin gold rims.
