Why not continue the theme with some candles, some low centerpieces, a little of this, a little of that... I always have fun making sure my table looks good before the food gets served, I think it adds a lot to the whole dining experience. I want to give you a couple of ideas here.
Last year a friend made these for a thanksgiving potluck and I gave serious thought to copying them this year, but I already had an idea in mind. Let me show you an example of an almost totally edible centerpiece.
And here's my idea for my table. I have several of these plates, some votives, fresh cranberries (which can be re-purposed after dinner) and some leaves I gathered in Butterfield Canyon a few years ago.
I'm going to intersperse them with some green candles in a cut glass holder and twine some yellow leaves on a vine around the candles as well. There are a lot of these
outside right now. I just don't want to go out and cut some til the big day. I promise to try and take a picture of the table when I do.
How are your thanksgiving plans coming? I'm heading down to the kitchen in a few minutes to start making the mince pies.
