Thanksgiving is one of the biggest holidays in the USA, celebrated in all states up, down and across the country. It is believed that Thanksgiving was to commemorate a harvest festival back in 1621 by the Pilgrim fathers and was declared a national holiday in the USA in the early 1940's.
Celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November followed by a bank holiday Friday, which is now commonly known as Black Friday, this four-day weekend is seen as one of the most important holidays of the year, definitely one to get the family together and enjoy a traditional celebratory Thanksgiving meal.
Whether you're American or not, hosting a Thanksgiving dinner here in the UK is a lovely reason to get family and friends together. But how to decorate the table for your Thanksgiving dinner? Here we look at a few styles you might like to bring to the table.
1. A classic or rustic setting
This is well suited to a rustic dining table like the newly launched Ringwood mango wood dining table and a great theme for a Thanksgiving dinner with a very traditional touch. Pumpkins are a big part of Thanksgiving in the US so you could set a rustic theme for your table by opting for natural fauna, dried flowers and also some gourds. The tableware to use for this theme should be chunky, homely earthenware in neutral colours.
2. A contemporary setting
For this, you will want ultra-modern tableware, modern simple lined minimalist candlesticks, white plates to almost achieve a retro look that would complement the striking design of the top of the Canford mango wood dining table. A simple table setting and serving dishes that will sit easily on the striking diamond patterning of the tabletop.
3. Go glam

Merge glamour with an industrial dining table to achieve the trending look of the season.
