How to Set Your Thanksgiving Table for a Feast

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all of the wonderful things in life, and especially for the people with whom that life is shared. At Premiere, we’re grateful for our team, our customers, and for our ability to weather this pandemic storm. Despite all of the hardships this year, we have so much to be thankful for, and we want to share a little bit of our knowledge with you to help make your 2020 celebrations a little less stressful.

First, determine how many people will be sharing your Thanksgiving table(s). Make a list of everything you already have to accommodate your guests and note the rental support you’ll need to make the Celebration complete.

Tables – This year, consider asking your guests whether they’d like to sit separately from others (due to high-risk factors for COVID), and consider setting an extra 30” round table to ensure socially distanced seating in small spaces! Taking proper precautions shouldn’t prevent family or friends from celebrating this special day.

Chairs – Odds are that you have some chairs, but maybe not enough. That neighbor you usually borrow from for game night might be hosting their own Thanksgiving at home this year. Premiere can help with the overflow, or, if aesthetics are important to you, consider renting a full matched-chair set.

Table Linens – Whether you’re renting tables or using your own, odds are you’ll need table linens. We carry many different sizes, colors, and materials to complete your fall look.

Linen Napkins – This year, make more of an eco-friendly impact by renting cloth napkins. You’ll  have less trash than with disposable paper napkins, and you don’t even have to wash them. They’ll come to you sanitized and ready to use, and we’ll wash and sanitize them upon return.

Dishes, Flatware, and Glassware – Nobody wants to do all the dishes after your full from the biggest meal of the year, and why should you? Odds are you’ve been cooking and baking for hours, so why not relax and spend more time with your family this year? Just scrape your plates, then place them back in the crate and we’ll wash them for you upon return!

Serving Platters, Bowls, and Utensils – If you don’t have all of the serving pieces you need and don’t feel like borrowing, or maybe you live in a small apartment by yourself, but just want to host Friendsgiving without having to buy and find a place to store everything forever, considering renting what you’ll need! We have a huge selection of all different sizes.

And More! – If you’re feeding everyone you know, or helping out at your church or community center with feeding those less fortunate, you might need cooking equipment, chafers and hot boxes to keep your food hot. Premiere has everything you might need to help make it a meal to be grateful for. We even have hand sanitizer dispensers, buffet sneeze guards, trash cans, and more.

Don’t forget the kids! – Let’s be honest, when we were little ones, all we wanted was to be grown up enough to sit at the big table, but now that we have a few more years under our belts, all we want to do is get back to that kids table!  Set up a mini-version of the adults table, or keep it simple with butcher paper instead of a table linen, but whatever you do, don’t forget about the kiddos!
