Covid-19 and the resulting safety precautions have changed the way many families will celebrate Thanksgiving. Elaborate feasts might be scaled down, moved outdoors, or held virtually. Though the structure is different, the style needn’t be sacrificed.
Potomac based designer Anne Walker of outdoor home accessories and design company Farm & Feast said, “Outdoor entertaining has been on the rise for a decade, but now more than ever outside is the place to be. Whether you have a formal outdoor living room complete with stone fireplace and patio, or a balcony outside your apartment, or something in between, your Thanksgiving holiday will be most successful this year if you gather outside.”
As per Springfield Connection, “If the temperature is mild this year, a turkey dinner outdoors can allow one to achieve both elegance and safety. Durable and shatterproof serve wear is a must when dining outdoors, suggests Walker. When setting an outdoor table, consider rustic accessories so that the design flows with the natural surroundings. Add warmth to a virtual celebration by using traditional table accessories. “We brought some additional character to our table by mixing antique brass napkin rings,” said Queen. “Not everything needs to match, and this is one way to make a tablescape feel unique and curated.”
