The Thanksgiving Tablescape

The best part of preparing for the Thanksgiving meal is taking a break from the cooking to create the table. You know what my dad always said…”Sell the sizzle…then the steak.” Set a table that says to your guests that you have been waiting just for them. Your table can’t be an afterthought.

This year’s table is a cornucopia of frosted fruit, acorn candle holders, fall picks and garlands with a sheer bronze beaded scarf for splash. My friend Cindy Dyer stopped by just when I was decorating. Her advice: “Just when you think you are done, throw in some more. Make it pop!”

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  1. Oooooh! Ahhhhh! How beautiful!

    And I’m glad to know the “rule for tablescapes” – which is the opposite of Coco Chanel’s rule for accessories – she said when you are ready to leave the house, take one accessory off.

    I think I like Cindy’s rule better :-).
