The Holiday Table:

For Friendsgiving and Beyond

There’s nothing better than surrounding yourself with those you love to share a meal. But holiday gatherings can be stressful, especially for those brave enough to host. Whether you’re the 24-hour brined turkey type or your cranberry sauce comes straight from the can, it’s the company that makes the holiday. The rest is gravy. Warm neutral linens and crisp porcelain make your menu pop while your glassware arsenal should cover all manner for quaffs, gulps and enthusiastic toasting. It’s about elevating without exaggerating, so let the food (and your mother-in-law) do the talking.

When in doubt - start simple. Easily ‘fall-ify’ your favorite champagne cocktail with refreshing autumn flavors. Cranberries, pomegranate seeds or a dash of apple brandy work great in a classic glass.

Thanksgiving need not only be Turkey day. Warm, neutral table linens and colorful, seasonal ingredients prepared in the spirit of of the holiday work just as well at friendsgiving as with the in-laws.

Balance tradition with your own thing. Elevate without intimidating. Candles and pops of festive color make it an event. And no one ever said negronis don’t go with everything.

Autumn weather brings a craving for comfort. And there’s always room for dessert. A simple pear pie or apple cake served on crisp white will get you real brownie points (skip the brownie though).
