How Do You Decorate Your Turkey Day Table?

Hey Ya’ll,

When it comes to your Thanksgiving table, do you prefer to keep your decor simple and focus more on the food or do you like to create an elaborate tablescape that incorporates your menu?

It can be as simple as beautiful food selection (i.e. colors, textures, shapes, etc.) paired with flawless presentation (i.e. container choice, placement, serving mechanisms, etc.) or so intricate that the food functions as one part of a much larger design that can include everything from place settings, place cards, menus, glassware, favors, centerpieces and more!

  1. Lovely examples of both styles. For Thanksgiving I tend to go more traditional. I use the china, crystal, and silver, and bring out the antique serving pieces form my grandmothers. I usually use a damask cloth, often with a runner, and candles, florals, pinecones, neutral toned ceramic pumpkins, etc. It never looks the same twice, but I always think it looks elegant. Of course, I’m a little biased. We did have an outdoor Thanksgiving once, and while it was memorable, that table didn’t really look like Thanksgiving to me.
