Thanksgiving is only a few days away — for those that have dinner hosting responsibilities, here are some easy, creative ideas on how to decorate the table.
For a fun and seasonally appropriate accent to any place setting, arrange a combination of autumn leaves and chestnuts around the table.
Similarly, look to the gourd family to assemble a stunning nature-inspired centrepiece. Set a number of pumpkins and/or squash in the middle of the table and throw in dried flowers and pinecones for an extra effect.
Swap out white napkins for ones with a cosier palette fit for October, and use wooden serving bowls and utensils to give a rustic feel.
Nothing says fall like a splash of plaid, so dig out your favourite tartan blanket or tablecloth.
Another use for turkeys
Besides being delicious, turkeys make great napkin rings. Craft your own colourful set with a handful of inexpensive pipe cleaners, or pick up these bronze-finished examples from Crate and Barrel.
In case the above has sparked some passion for DIY — grab some felt, feathers and googly eyes from the dollar store and put together these Thanksgiving table place card holders, to communicate where every should sit in the cutest manner possible.
