Cyd from The Sweetest Event


Heirloom Pumpkin Serveware Collection – $19.95

I am not typically one for bits that are too themed, but I really can’t get a lot of these heirloom pumpkin serving pieces. I really like the selection of shades and shapes.

West Elm

Smoked Glassware – $32

Available as champagne flutes and red or white wine glasses, the amber color of the contemporary stemware set has me falling in love. It’s perfect for harvest year!

Pottery Barn

Antique Silver Tiered Stand – $129

I am loving this 3-tier stand using its pretty vintage finish. It’s perfect for holding plenty of pre-dinner treats and nibbles at your holiday celebrations.


Oval Baker – $58

I always love stoneware dishes for baking because they readily serve double-duty as pretty serving pieces. The wealthy autumn-inspired color of the one makes it a Thanksgiving treasure.


Smoke Dahlia Napkin Set – $24

Skip paper cries for holiday celebrations and elect for real fabric napkins at a pattern you love. I can not get enough of this tomato color on these.

Pottery Barn

Acorn Pie Server – $19

Pretty serving pieces are a staple at any Thanksgiving table. I really like the textured alloy of the autumn-inspired pie host.

West Elm

Recycled-Glass Votive Holders – $4

Simple votive candles are perfect for a major holiday party. They add a festive glow to the table, but their low profile keeps them from getting in the way. I love these from the plum color that is available online.

West Elm

Thanksgiving Platters – $29

These pretty porcelain platters with metallic silver accents are great for Thanksgiving and may only be my favourite things.


Sushi Queen Flatware – $24

Pretty flatware immediately adds a bit of sparkle to a party table. I really like the clean, chopstick-inspired layout of these bits.


Autumn Gifting Bundle – $34

The holidays bring plenty of excuses to dream up great hostess gifts. I love this gifting apparel, complete with all the essentials for wrapping pretty presents.


Le Creuset 16-Ounce French Onion Soup Bowl at Cherry – $21.95

French onion soup bowls using practical handles are perfect for serving up your favourite seasonal soups, like butternut squash bisque.

Pottery Barn

Montana Gravy Boat & Ladle – $29

A hostess may never have too many gravy boats come time for Thanksgiving! This one has appeal with classic, clean lines.
Here’s a hint: try one at the end of this table to get less mess as they have passed around.


Avoca Plaid Throw – $168

Keep a few comfy throws on hand for guests to snuggle up by the fire between dinner and dessert. This year I am loving wool and flannel plaids.

Twist Bistro Table – $399

For additional chairs or serving surface, I am loving this pretty wooden bistro table.

Pottery Barn

Emma Cake Stand – $45

Just because you aren’t serving cake up does not signify that a sweet cake stand isn’t perfect for Thanksgiving — use it to function curry or hold a heap of yummy muffins or cookies.

Calypso St. Barth

Gold Table Cloth – $165

I love the soft golden and timeless pattern of the tablecloth; it’s perfect for the holidays or any special occasion.

Calypso St. Barth

Oil & Vinegar Set – $150

I am always a sucker for a set of oil and vinegar stopper bottles. These are chic!


Solace Dinnerware – $3.95

Stoneware dinnerware readily transitioned from everyday to vacation, particularly with inspired finishes and shapes.


Tea-And-Crumpets Child’s Apron – $24

Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse for an impossibly adorable blouse. This one has quite ruffles — ‘nough said.


Folding Seat – $36.95

Significant holiday dinners call for additional seats. These folding chairs still look chic in a pretty chestnut finish.
