We thought we had pretty much covered anything and everything you might need or want for Thanksgiving in our Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials but turns out, every year we find more great “essentials”. Yes, it is true that our aesthetic evolves every year. For example this year, we are really into using tea towels for napkins and love the elegant acorn salt and pepper shakers.
