Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Having a beautifully set table just makes a meal that much more special. And what meal is more special than Thanksgiving? I’m showing you how I made this simple Thanksgiving place setting for your guests. It’s mostly free, and you can put it together very easily, even if you’re someone who isn’t super crafty.

I like going with a neutral, warm color palette with mostly whites, tans, oranges, and browns. Add some fresh greenery down the middle of the table and a few candles throughout to add a glow.

You will need:

  • Leaves (1 for each guest or place setting)
  • Gold push pins
  • Gold pen
  • Paper or cardstock
  • Twine

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Start by writing each of your guests names on a separate piece of paper or cardstock.

Take each name and use a push pin to push through the leaf.

Gather your linens in the middle and tie with a piece of twine. Place on top of each dish and place each leaf on top.

Sweet potato casserole and other Thanksgiving recipes

Sweet Potato Casserole and other Thanksgiving recipes

Thanksgiving is probably one of my most favorite holidays ever! For me, it’s all about the sides and the leftover sandwiches the next day.  This sweet potato casserole is my favorite and something I look forward to all year long. I’ve lightened this recipe up, and it’s perfect for those who are dairy free or vegan. Scroll down for my sweet potato casserole and some other Thanksgiving recipes to bring to your table.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 sweet potatoes cubed
  • 2/3 cups milk of choice (I used oat milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup Dandies vegan marshmallows (optional)

Directions:

  1. Start by peeling and chopping your sweet potato. Place in a pot of boiling water and cook until tender (can pierce easily with a fork).
  2. Remove from heat and strain the water from the potatoes in a colander.
  3. Place your potatoes, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl or your Kitchen Aid and mix until pureed.
  4. Transfer the sweet potato puree into a prepared baking dish and put to the side.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together your pecans, brown sugar, flour and a dash of salt.
  6. Add in your melted butter to the nut and sugar mixture and combine. This will be your topping.
  7. Spread the nut topping over the top of the sweet potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake on 350 for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Optional – before serving, add some marshmallows. (I found these vegan ones!) I make a few strips on top with the marshmallows so that way those who don’t like them can have without.
  9. Bake in the oven before serving uncovered for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the tops of the marshmallows and pecans are golden brown.
