The seasonal tradition of gathering around the table at Thanksgiving becomes a bountiful harvest of love, family , friends and food! This year plan ahead and set your table to show off all that yummy goodness!
The simplicity of an occasional pumpkin on the table and a napkin tied with rafia will set the tone for any Thanksgiving meal.
Candles are always a plus on any table setting!
By adding a bright orange fabric runner on the table adds a lot of drama to your meal!

I love the simple styling of these pumpkins. It adds a lot of color and drama and isn’t hard on the budget!
This is easy to do! Hand painted candle sticks from a local hobby store!
You can achieve this custom look by going to Wal Mart. They are selling leaf plates in the holiday section of the store!
This is a great time to show case unusual antique silver !
When you have a large group in your home its nice for the guest to find where to sit by simply placing name tags about each plate!
More than any other season the grocery store is a great source for designing a beautiful table!
Here is an example of a more contemporary design.
This is my personal favorite! I love the square orange glass plate and a simple pear for color! This is very sophisticated!
If the weather is nice then take the party outside!
Orange and gold are not the only colors for fall. I love these white pumpkins and off white candles!
For a more casual setting use place mats!
You can never go wrong with a clean white table cloth!
The grey charger plate adds just the right balance for all the warms colors of Thanksgivng!
However you set your table this Thanksgiving! Enjoy and save room for desert!
