This holiday season, Food & Wine is going over the top with our series "Give Thanks, But Make It Extra"—a celebration of all things opulent, glittering, rich, delicious, and joyful.

This year for the fall holidays we're taking a break from the moody hues and traditionally serious table settings. Thanksgiving is about sharing things—celebrating both the family and the community we care for with great food and drinks. To make things feel a little more special we suggest amping up the ambiance with fun, festive additions from cookware to candles. Items here run the gamut in terms of investment, but there is something great to elevate every table and space for every budget. Read on for some of our favorite tabletop ideas for Thanksgiving in 2021.
