Thanksgiving 2016 at Galleria Dallas

Galleria Dallas has everything you need for Thanksgiving. And we really do mean everything. See below for some of our favorite picks for Turkey Day!



Dressing your turkey is important, but dressing your table is pretty important, too! Pottery Barn offers amazing themed tableware that’s both festive and functional. We love this adorable turkey carving platter. It adds the perfect rustic touch to any table, whether you’re serving turkey or its tofu counterpart. It goes perfectly atop this watercolor leaves table runner. The coloring is ideal for Thanksgiving or any fall dinner party, and — bonus — it’s machine washable.

You can find more dinner party must-haves by Vietri at Belk. These Lastra Cream plates are appropriate for any holiday table. They’re a little rustic in design, but they pair well with most styles. No to mention that they’re dishwasher safe for easy cleanup and can go in the freezer and microwave safely, making them ideal for those Thanksgiving leftovers. Bulk up your stemware collection with the Vietri Puccinelli glassware. They’re elegant and timeless, but more importantly, they’re durable. There’s no place for broken glass on your Thanksgiving menu!

Finally, because we could never write about Thanksgiving without mentioning pumpkin spice, stop by White Barn Candle at Bath and Body Works to pick up a pumpkin spice three-wick candle. It’s super festive and burns up to 45 hours. Plus, it comes in a simple, understated candleholder that fits seamlessly into any fall color scheme.

Home Decor


Your table might be the center of your Thanksgiving celebration, but your overall home decor definitely adds to the ambiance. Welcome loved ones with a seasonal door wreath such as this one from Nordstrom Home. The pumpkins and maple leaves scream fall, and the subtle leopard print on the burlap ribbon adds some modern interest to a traditional, rustic look.

Lounge in seasonal style with this autumn throw pillow from Macy’s Home. It will pair nicely with this dark red India block pillow from Earthbound Trading Co. It’s hand-printed in India and invites a boho vibe into your decor. To continue that eclectic, traveler theme, we love these wood tree of life coasters, also from Earthbound. They’re a stylish take on a necessary item, and they work as a great neutral accent. They’re perfect for Thanksgiving, but you’ll love them all year-round. And that’s something to give thanks for.

You already know Galleria Dallas has amazing food. So if you’re a little worried about cooking a full Thanksgiving feast from scratch, why not let us do some of the heavy lifting? Reservations for Thanksgiving at The Second Floor and The Oceanaire are open now, and if you’re interested in a full catering menu, The Grill on the Alley has a wide selection.

If you just need help with the side dishes, definitely make it a point to pick up some loaded mac and cheese or creamed spinach from The Grill on the Alley. And don’t deny your visiting sweet tooths. Swing by Grand Lux Café for some warm rustic apple pie or freshly baked chocolate chip pecan cookies.


Or maybe you’re holding a hand-me-down recipe book with everything you need for your menu. There’s still one thing we suggest: some new cookware from Le Creuset. Check out its Thanksgiving Guide online, and consider buying one of the high-quality, durable roasters you’ll use for years to come.

Gift Ideas


If you’re attending someone else’s Thanksgiving feast, there’s still plenty for you to prepare — thoughtful gifts they’ll thank you for. Pamper their tired hands with this hand care duo gift set from Crabtree & Evelyn. The gardeners hand soap and intense lotion are gentle enough for frequent washing, which is just what the holidays call for. They’re also nutrient rich, so skin feels soft despite the chilly weather. We also love the Nantucket briar hatbox gift set, also from Crabtree & Evelyn. The hatbox is reusable, and the body gel, body lotion and intensive hand lotion are all lightly scented and super high quality. It’s a luxurious way to say thank you.

Give your geekier pals something they can use right away such as this BB-8 oven mitt from Box Lunch. Or give a gift that gives back such as the Bridgewater Candle Company Feathers tin candle. For every candle purchased, a child in need gets three meals through the Light a Candle, Feed a Child project. It’s the perfect mood-setter for your feast and helps end hunger for others.


Whatever gift you decide, make sure to stop by Papyrus for the perfect thank-you card. We love the luxe glitter wreath on this one, and for hosts who entertain frequently, this cocktail gift set with a recipe book and cocktail strainer is both useful and fun.

Thanksgiving is a time for acknowledging everything you have to be thankful for — and making a point to say it. As such, we at Galleria Dallas are thankful for you and appreciate you making us a part of your holiday plans.
