Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and I don’t know about you guys but I am so excited for all the delicious food and great company! We are hosting this year for the first time, and I am frantically trying to find the *best* recipes for each staple and just hoping I don’t screw it up!

Whenever I host a formal dinner party I always find myself trying to remember the right ways to set a table. And I’m not talk about the forks versus spoons (but while we are on that topic, have you heard the tip that the letters in each silverware are the same amount of letters in the words right or left?! That’s always how I remember which side the silverware goes on, even as a 29 year old! Meaning, fork (4 letters) goes on the left (4 letters), and spoon (5 letters) goes on the right (5 letters) and so on.)

I thought it would be fun and helpful to create a place setting based on some research I did (who knew there are so many opinions on formal place settings), and what I found to be the most functional and realistic for our dinner parties.

There you have it! Save this to your pinterest board or phone as a quick reference when you’re getting all set for your Thanksgiving dinner party! And if you aren’t hosting, now you can feel confident offering to help set the table. I bet that help would bless any hostess you are visiting!
