Get your home Holiday ready! Cooler weather means we stay inside and decorate for Thanksgiving rather than working in our gardens. Here are some ideas for your Thanksgiving table decorations.
Pumpkins are not just for Halloween. Put an arrangement of pumpkins in the center of your table surrounded by candles and food. You will easily see over the pumpkins to your guests on the other side of the table and no worries about the leaves or flowers from an arrangement falling in your food.
Small gourds arranged in a basket adds more interest in color and shape. Curved, colorful gourds arranged with small pumpkins that are orange, green or white, and unusual shapes add interest to your table at a nominal cost.
The appetizer table can be made festive with a “turkey” made from food – round crackers, a cheese ball, and pretzels. Simple, fun, and eye catching.
I have often used a special napkin fold for Christmas dinner but never for Thanksgiving dinner. Here is an easy “turkey” napkin from a World Market blog that could be done in advance to take the pressure off last minute preparations
