Using Decorative Fruit Plates On Your Thanksgiving Holiday Table

Time To Use Your Pretty Fruit And Floral Plates For Thanksgiving

This is the time of the year when antique stores are busy as the holiday season is upon us and shoppers are looking for dishes, glassware, textiles, tablecloths for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Vintage Decorative Fruit Plates
While it is fun to add some more vintage decorative pieces to your home, you can also consider looking in your own cupbords to find plates, platters and entertaining accessories that you may already have acquired and have forgotten about.

What's In Your China Closet For Thanksgiving?

Decorative Plates With Fruit Themes For Thanksgiving 

Many of us have plates with fruits and harvest scenes handed down form grandparents and family members. Fruit and floral patterns, popular during the 1950s make great additions to the Thanksgiving table. While you might want to use a heavy charger or platter for your Turkey, you can use smaller and lighter decorative plates for condiments, side dishes, breads, fruit, desserts. 

I have picked out a few examples of plates that would look lovely on your Thanksgiving table. Now see what you can find in your own closets and China cabinets.
