Set the Scene
Start by giving your table some holiday style with a seasonal tablecloth. Here are 18 Best Thanksgiving Tablecloths You Can Buy in 2022…and, we think it goes without saying, but we’re partial to the “Give Thanks Plaid Tablecloth”.


Display a Masterpiece Centerpiece

Do It Up With Dinnerware
Whether you want to mix and match, keep it casual, or fancy it up, these 16 Stylish Thanksgiving Dinnerware Sets will make your Holiday meal complete.


We’re Big on Buffet
Sometimes the easiest way to host is to make it a self-serve buffet! Don’t put all the food out at once. Start with some of the appetizers from above, then serve the salad course like a self-serve salad bar, followed by a cheese course buffet, and then lay out the big meal buffet-style when it’s ready! Afterward, you can set up the sweets and let everyone serve themselves!


Create a Self-Serve Beverage Area Too

If you’re busy cooking, then you simply don’t have time to make a drink for every guest. So why not serve up some pre-made custom cocktails at a self-serve station? Grab that punch bowl or pitcher and fill ’em up with fun libations, like this delicious warmed cider:


Spiked Crockpot Caramel Apple Cider
Hot caramel apple cider is perfect for a crowd! Spiked with vanilla vodka for the adults is everyone’s favorite fall cocktail recipe. Garnished with a Walkers Mini Shortbread Round for a favorite dessert too. In partnership with Crazy for Crust. Get the recipe here!


Give a Thoughtful Gift
Whether you’re hosting or an invited guest, nothing says Happy Holidays better than a sweet gift—and our Walkers Shortbread makes a great one. Check out all the options online in our Gifts & Seasonal section.


Above all else…have fun and enjoy this special time gathering again with friends and family!
