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.
Beautiful and simple are the words for the day. Here’s to getting your table ready to give thanks,
There was talk I was hosting my family for Thanksgiving this year.
It ends up I will be hosting Christmas instead, but I could not help but wonder how I was going to decorate all of those holiday tables.
You see, my husband and I both come from large families, so a family gathering is never small. A beautifully set table-or two or three- makes any meal a special occasion. And what dinner could be more important than Thanksgiving?
Even though I like to entertain and want things to look pretty, I don’t have hours and hours to spend setting several tables for my large family. Who does??
Setting a table takes time, so I like to keep it SIMPLE. Simple is almost always better in my world.
I created this Thanksgiving tablescape for a television segment last year for NBC-13 Daytime Alabama, and I am thinking recreating it when needed. It is very simple, pretty, and softly layered.
I’ve also been inspired by several tablescapes I have seen on Pinterest recently. Here are a couple that caught my eye.
I hope you feel inspired to set a table that’s dressed to impress.
Have a great day, everyone-
