5 tips for thanksgiving tablescapes

 

Hello friends.

Looking for some inspiration for your Thanksgiving table?

I am.

There are some key elememts to setting a great table.

1. Natural elements.

There needs to be something green or natural on the table, whether it is plant, flower or some organic object from nature.

2. Candlelight.

Nothing adds more ambiance than candles on the table.

Somehow everything feels more festive with candlelight dancing around the room.

3. Linen

Cloth napkins are a must, but linen takes it to the next level.

The idea of printing the menu and using it as a napkin ring is pure brillance

4. Special tableware.

Several years ago I found a set of Spode brown transferware plates with turkeys on them at TJMaxx.

I’m sure you remember seeing them.

I.love.them.

I know it is seems silly to store plates for one day of the year, but to my family it means Thanksgiving.

So #4 is whatever is special to your family and the traditions you have created over the years.

Put it on the table.

It is a day of remembrance and thankfulness. I also use the silver I inheirited from my mother.

She is no longer with us but somehow when we use the silver we alwaysย think of her.

5. Thank you’s

Something you can write on to share the things you are thankful for.

Actually writing and sharing verbally with those you love is the greatest act of thankfulness you can do.

It can be as simple as a sheet of paper that everyone writes something down, or a thankful tree with thanks for leaves.

Whatever it is, taking the time in this fast paced, plugged in,

“stop the world I wanna get off” road race, looking back over the past year and counting your blessings

is the best way to spend this one day a year we call Thanksgiving.

President Lincoln thought so too.

Thanks Abe.
