Anyone who has ever hosted a Thanksgiving dinner party knows that it's easy to overlook certain tabletop essentials until it's almost too late. You may be hosting a dinner for 12 but realize at the last minute that you only have nine steak knives or six red wine glasses. Unless you've accounted for all these tabletop essentials a few days (or even better, weeks) before the big day, you're left in a pinch—mixing and matching cutlery or asking a sibling to bring an extra serving platter or napkins.

One easy trick to avoid the last-minute panic is to do a test run of your Thanksgiving table decorations a few weeks before the big day to ensure you have time to order all the missing essentials—from a large serving platter to serve your turkey to enough linen napkins for everyone around the table. Think of it as a rehearsal—ensuring that everything will go off without a hitch on the big day. If you find out that anything is missing or if you simply want to upgrade a few things, we handpicked the best Thanksgiving table decorations you'll want to use over the holidays and beyond.
