Having the right utensils speaks volumes
Prepping the Turkey, making the stuffing, the sprouts, the roast veggies and of course the cranberry sauce all call for a selection of state-of-the-art cooking utensils. Who doesn’t want to look classy whilst cooking a Martha Steward-Esque feast? The feeling of satisfaction using beautifully crafted measuring spoons is one of those small joys, in fact using anything beautifully made creates a flawless experience. When it comes to silver items in the home George Jensen not only pioneers the way; this brand steps up the level of luxury with their world-class designs.
Master the art of dressing a table with these essentials
Add freshness to your existing table vibe by incorporating new season elements into your tablescape. Pro-tip: no matter which color combination you opt for, make sure all the color elements work in harmony and complement each other. Traditional “Thanksgiving Colors” include cranberry reds, camel browns, and fall yellows but don’t let this limit you, there are no rules. Super chic tablescapes featured on Vogue are illuminated by throwing gorgeous turquoise tones with traditional colors -and it works like a dream.
Alternatively, if you want to adopt a Baroque style tablescape, and feast like it’s the last supper, make gold the primary color – think of a Versace runway but in table form. Because an American tradition could always use a bit of European influence, especially if you’ve recently traveled through the region, you’ll know Italians do it well.
Finally, the old-world craftmanship of Baccarat is something never to be missed. Their designs make a setting instantly more luxurious and refined. Be it candle holders, vases, wine glasses or decanters, the crystal designs will make you feel like you are serving your guests with a piece of art. This heritage brand has those pieces worth investing in, the craftsmanship and quality of the crystal mean everything they make is a pleasure to use.
