Thanksgiving Table

Easy Thanksgiving entertaining ideas

Life is great, when you’re grateful.  2012 has been an incredible year for my family and I.  I look forward to slowing down and celebrating it today!  Here’s a peek at this year’s Thanksgiving table…

I always try to design a table that is inexpensive and doesn’t take a lot of effort.  This year’s was no exception.  In fact, I spent $3.99 + tax – for the flowers.

For the sake of ease, I set out serving utensils and preset the table.

It’s not to late to print out Thankful For cards for your Thanksgiving dinner.  They add a little decor, but double as an activity for guests while you’re finishing dinner.

The wheatgrass was snipped from the back of my wheat sheath wreath and tied with velvet ribbon.

I arranged a bouquet of white mums in a tarnished mint julep cup.  The mini white pumpkins have been used in a variety of ways throughout our home over the last couple months and were repurposed for our Thanksgiving table.

I also incorporated the burlap table runner and a few unscented candles.  I don’t like to overfill the table so that there is plenty of room for drinks, rolls, etc.
Fall decor
I left the antique dresser fairly bare so that it can host bottles of wine and a pitcher of water, but I accented it with two week old mums {rustic, right} and a pumpkin.
The dining room is next on my completion list!  Window treatments and a rug will complete the space.  Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
