Are you ready?
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and there’s no time like now to start hammering out the details.
If you are like me, you
haven’t done the first thing to prepare are determined to make the festive day smooth and stress-free. After all, the holiday is about coming together and giving thanks for all we are grateful.
BUT…….. Long before the food is served, your table will make a first impression.
Some of the loveliest tables aren’t necessarily about the china or silver, but rather the natural elements that suggest the occasion. I love fine china and silver as much as the next person, but what really makes the table for me is a thoughtful arrangement, place cards, or special linens.
As mentioned in a previous post, unique napkin folds are an simple way to add elegance to your table. If you haven’t already, watch this video as I show how easily napkin folding can be done in a unique way.
Below we are sharing some of our favorite tablescapes from Pinterest.
