I am an ambassador for World Market. All opinions and ideas shared are always 100% my own.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving will be here in just a few short weeks? I’m always on the lookout for new Thanksgiving tablescape and entertaining pieces for our Thanksgiving dinner, parties, and get-togethers. I’ve gathered up some of my favorite finds to share with you in this post, all coming from one of my very favorite stores that I visit weekly- World Market!
World Market has TONS of great Thanksgiving holiday entertaining items, as well as Christmas holiday entertaining too. If you’ve been following my blog for very long, I’m sure you’ve seen many pieces that I’ve bought from there- I am constantly reaching for them because they are not only stylish, but they are SO affordable, so a shopping trip there doesn’t break the bank!
Turkey Collection Napkins– These lovely napkins, handcrafted of cotton in India, feature a gorgeous fall border around each napkin. I love the classic harvest design featured on the napkins… so pretty and elegant!
Wood Bark Pedestal Stand– This wood bark pedestal stand has had my heart from the moment I saw it in World Market… I already own two of them!! I use these stands to give a natural rustic look to my parties and for entertaining. You can see how they added a wonderful natural feel to my fall party I recently hosted with friends, where I used TONS of my favorite World Market products to create a gorgeous fall and Thanksgiving tablescape.
Provence Dinner Plates– I love the elegant simplicity of these stunning dinner plates. The ivory color really lets the deep, rich colors of Thanksgiving dinner shine!
Pumpkin Ceramic Casserole Baker– These pumpkin-shaped bakers are a great way to add some fall to your Thanksgiving table, and are perfect for serving up some butternut squash soup (you can see where I used the white baker in my recipe here), or a casserole, stuffing, or anything that you would like to keep hot at the dinner table. I own one of these, too, and love how easy it is to bring straight from the oven to the table, and the festive holiday look it gives to our meals. Plus, it comes in three different colors!
Parchment Paper Fall Leaves– I just can’t get enough of these gorgeous fall leaves made from parchment paper. There are SO many different ways to use these pretties at your Thanksgiving table! Write on them for place cards or food labels, string them up for a gorgeous garland or cake bunting, or simply scatter around the table to add some deep fall colors and a festive look to the table.
Turkey Brine Kit– Brining a turkey is a great way to lock in the moisture and rich flavors from the cooking juices, and this turkey brine kit is a great way to do just that. This brine is a delicious blend of salt, sugar, orange peel, peppercorns, and fragrant herbs. The kit also includes a tasty cedar spice rub to give your turkey the ultimate in flavor and juiciness… my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Wood Bark Bowl– These gorgeous wood bark bowls that were discovered in Thailand are another amazing way to bring the beauty of nature to your Thanksgiving table. The bowls come in three different shapes, and each bowl is unique in the wood grain and bark detail. These would make a gorgeous addition to your Thanksgiving table, and are already on my shopping list for when I go back to World Market this week (yes, it’s a weekly trip I make!).
Ruffled Pie Dishes– Let your homemade pies take center stage in these pretty ceramic pie dishes! These feature beautiful fluted edges and a natural orange and brown non-stick finish, perfect for presenting your delicious pies in.
Hand-Carved Wood Tablet Stand– Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to follow a recipe on your tablet in the kitchen, only to have your tablet slide down to where you can’t see it, and have to touch it with your messy hands to lift it back up? (Can you tell this has happened to me?) I am absolutely in LOVE with this gorgeous hand-carved wood tablet stand that is handmade in India. The intricate carving is so detailed and gorgeous, and is a steal at just under $25. Here’s another item going on my World Market list! 😉
Vintage-Style Pie Servers– I love all of the intricate and elegant details of these gorgeous pie servers. They are made of stainless steel so they are meant to last, and have serrated edges for easy cutting through any Thanksgiving pie you plan to serve.
