5 Dining Pieces Every Hostess Needs for their Dinner Parties

Are you looking to host the best Thanksgiving party at your place this year? While the guest list and the food are wildly important, we all know that décor and presentation matters too!

Although many may say that what you serve is more important than what you serve it in, there’s still nothing wrong with going above and beyond by investing in some great classic serving pieces.

Here are five versatile pieces that will not only be helpful for this Thanksgiving, but will also work for any future event you may host in your home.

The Cake Stand

Let’s get down to the main event: dessert. Whether you made your pie from scratch or bought it from the store, you can make it look even more enticing by placing it on an elegant cake stand.

Multi-Size Serving Bowls

Now that we’ve got dessert covered, it’s time to figure out what you’re going to use to serve your main-course meal items. Between salads, roasted veggies, and potatoes, having multiple bowls in multiple sizes will definitely come in handy! These rustic metallic bowls from Bed Bath and Beyond will not only be practical, but will also help make your table look great!

The Ice Bucket

In terms of convenience, having an ice bucket will always come in handy when you’re hosting a large party. The fridge will inevitably be packed full of food and drinks, so why not use an ice bucket at the table to help with the chilling process. It’s functional and adds an elegant aesthetic.

The Pitcher

 Nobody wants to be running back and forth to the kitchen every two seconds to fetch water for all your guests. Keeping a pitcher of water, juice, or iced tea on the table is a great easy way to make your job as hostess a little simpler.
