With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it’s time to finalize all of your plans! Whether you’re hosting family, friends or both this time around, you may find yourself scrambling to pull out all the stops for your guests. Traditionally, Thanksgiving is marked by a delicious, calorie-heavy meal served around a table with all of your cheerful loved ones. Furthermore, this ensemble of food generally gets served on that “use just once a year” type of tableware.

It’s November already, and you’ve discovered that you have more guests than plates. Also, none of your plates resemble those you’ve been eyeing and desiring on Pinterest. Don’t panic – there are plenty of resources for renting the perfect tableware to use this coming holiday. Keep reading to find your local party rental.

If you’re in Los Angeles and looking for the perfect pieces to compliment your Thanksgiving this year, look no further than Dish Wish. At Dish Wish they believe in the art of the table and want to help you achieve that memorable meal. What’s great about this company is that they allow for à-la carte rentals with no minimum charge! If you have four guests, you can rent tableware for just the four people. If you have 20 guests, you can rent for all of them as well! Want to mix and match? Go for it!

One of the nice things about celebrating Thanksgiving in Los Angeles is that you have the option of dining outside! In Los Angeles, you can find a seemingly endless supply of beautifully crafted tables here at Found.

If you have most of your tableware already but are looking for something to give the table a little extra twinkle, allow me to introduce you to Nimble Well. The colored glass goblets are my personal favorite and would be such a fun, unexpected twist at a Thanksgiving table! They range from Victorian to Mid-century, so the mix in style and colors will be a quirky addition to any table. That table though! A rustic farm table from Rent Vintage is definitely big enough to seat all of your guests, and the width of the table in general will happily house (temporarily of course) all of the food you’re about to set upon it. When you’re eating on Thanksgiving Day you definitely want your guest to be in comfortable seats and not fold-out chairs from that BBQ over the summer. Peruse the velvety haven of vintage chairs available at Rent Vintage, and you’ll definitely end up sprucing up the heads of the table!

If you’re in Boston your standards are high, being submersed in the New England charm and all. Chances are you may have already accumulated a fair share of vintage tableware, but if not there is always Fancy That to help you out with last minute needs. Perhaps you don’t have a full set of your favorite china, for example. Maybe a few of your pieces have chips in them, or you need some extra seating. Renting from Sassafras Vintage Rentals is a great alternative to the commitment of buying something too expensive!
