dining table in green room

Chances are high that you or your in-laws have Irish heritage in your blood that you love to celebrate especially at Thanksgiving. While a visit to the old country to take in the Wild Atlantic Coast and lively atmosphere of Dublin City is the ideal way to honour your Irish connection, it’s not always possible to take the transatlantic flight. Instead, bringing an authentic Irish touch to your Thanksgiving family dinner table setting is the next best thing.

Here are some favourite Irish dinner table setting pieces that you will adore.

Irish Cutlery

Every Irish home sports a cutlery set from a leading Irish silverware brand. These cutlery sets are made to last a lifetime and traditionally passed on from one generation to the next. They also make wonderful wedding gifts. Favourite brands include Newbridge Silverware and Belleek.

Irish Crockery

For a beautiful traditional Irish feel at your dinner table, choose Nicholas Mosse Crockery sets. Made using the traditional sponge printing method, these designs launched 20 years ago and are still going strong today. Diem Pottery is another popular choice for Irish tableware. Choose the green colour scheme to bring out the green grass of Ireland theme.


No dinner table setting that pays tribute to Irish heritage is complete without Irish crystal. Some of Ireland’s most iconic brands such as Waterford Crystal and Galway Crystal will be sure to elevate your dinner setting.


Give your Thanksgiving get-together a wholesome rustic touch with Ballyshane Boards made from real Irish wood. Perfect for serving up cheese and crackers or afternoon nibbles.

Finishing Touches

Complete your dinner table setting with some special touches this Thanksgiving. Introduce some colour and vibrancy with McNutt of Donegal napkins or add the wow factor to your dining table with a pair of Galway Crystal crystal candle holders.
