Preparing a Formal Dining Thanksgiving

This week I took to our formal table for a few tricks on keeping it looking, well formal.  Our formal table is the most used piece of furniture we have.  We eat there, entertain, I use it as my office during the day and we homeschool on it when we need the space.


I’m not sure what I was thinking when I chose beige chairs.  I love them but, I dread to see them dirty.  In an effort to save the table, I prep it and scotchgard every piece of fabric I can possibly spray. {I even scotchgarded my tennis shoes because they are that worthy of it.}

Cover It

Use seat covers, the great thing about a seat cover is they change the entire look of a table and dress it up.  I am digging the Everyday Elegance seat covers.  They are waterproof, washable and look fab on my table.    I always have a seat cover under my toddlers seat.  It makes clean up easier and my chair is protected from his random mess’s.

Tablecloths are another must, they set the tone for elegance and protect the table.   I also don’t have to mess with polishing the table.   I love embossed prints and deep fall colors for Thanksgiving dinner.


 Don’t forget to add a centerpiece to your table, flowers and candles are always a great choice.

Serve it up

Chargers under plates, cloth napkins and  glasses create a great look at the table.   Don’t be afraid to serve everyone in stemware, it looks fancy and adds a touch of coolness.  Skip the plastic wear and opt for silverware.


Everyday Elegance seat covers are part of the Mompact November giveaway.  Enter here to win 2 sets plus a few other goodies in the giveaway.  Also available for purchase at Flourish.
