When the Thanksgiving holiday is around, you don’t have to worry about elegant table decorations and expensive stuff for the occasion. With the simplest things, you can serve a wonderful dinner and keep a good memory without exceeding your budget. One of the elegant, yet simple Thanksgiving decorations is transferware. Transferware is a style of printed ceramics such as dinnerware, vases, mugs and any other decorative items. The use of transferware first appeared in the 18th century on pottery and vases, and then they have been widely used in the United Kingdom as printed plates and decorations. Nowadays, turkey print plates are used as common Thanksgiving themes on almost every dining table.
In this topic, we introduce lovely ideas of decorative transferware and turkey print plates for Thanksgiving dinner. They are suitable as wall decorations when hanged upon special horizontal holders, and also as dining room décor when they are aligned in an elegant way with flower centerpieces. There are different types of dining plates and depicted platters that you can use either alone or with satin sheets, flowers and candles. The color blue is the main theme for the platters introduced in this topic to show special English style decorative items, but the common colors used on the dining table are green, black and red, light blue or brown. We’ve also included a few hand drawn countryside and turkey theme platters in colorful prints. The details in these platters make them so beautiful, precious and suitable as dining room decorations instead of table pieces.
