Setting a Beautiful Table this Thanksgiving
A plentiful table setting creates the perfect place for giving thanks.
Autumn, “the golden hour” of seasons, is a perfect time to layer up your table. While Thanksgiving seems to be greatly anticipated and then gone in a flash, it marks the beginning of celebratory gatherings. Kicking it off featuring a table laden with beautiful wares, abundant flowers, foliage, fruits, and vegetables is not as hard as it looks.
Mini pumpkins, gourds, apples, and pears gather around the table, layered atop each other for a base to work from. Adding in bunches of florals and unique greenery punches it up a notch, but keeping those arrangements at lower levels so you can see your loved ones across the table is important. To continue with the idea of layering, use place cards leaning against mini acorns to give a nod to fall. Whether you use placemats or a beautiful tablecloth, chargers or salad plates on top of dinner plates, the point is to fill the space to create a cozy, curated table that invites your guests to tuck in, give thanks, join together in the breaking of bread, and celebrate.
