Fab Thanksgiving

table setting 1

Most would agree that a finely dressed table at Thanksgiving is part of the experience.  Here are some great tips for creating a beautiful tablescape for your families to enjoy.  Use what you have if you don’t have the money to purchase anything new or expensive.  Mix and match and remember to have fun with it!  The important thing is to add your special touch with whatever color scheme you like.

Another great tip is to set the table a day ahead of time so you have more time to enjoy your Thanksgiving day too!!

table setting 2

Here we have a beautiful casual setting complete with charger (bottom piece), salad plate, decorative plate, soup bowl cascading up to create height. Forks to the left and spoon and knife to the right. Water glass on right and coffee cup to the left. Beautiful centerpiece complete with silk flower arrangement tied simply at the bottom and one large pumpkin and you’re ready to go!

Here is a more formal setting if you want to go all out complete with fine china and crystal. Same method; charger on the bottom, dinner plate next with bread and dessert dish on top. Forks to the left, spoon and knife to the right. Lovely Waterford Crystal wine glass to the right above the plate with the water glass tucked in slightly behind. Nicely anchored with a beautiful golden fall leaf placemat.

This is the formal centerpiece complete with pumpkins, crystal and faux bird.
