It’s a week until Thanksgiving and you’re starting to panic, you have 20+ guests arriving and you haven’t even thought past the turkey and stuffing! I’m sure we’ve all been there; the focus around Thanksgiving tends to be more about the food and less about the decorations. However, by taking just a little extra time to plan out the look of your table, the atmosphere of your special event can take on a whole new meaning.

Place Settings: Even the smallest details will bring a personalized touch to your table. A simple name tag or a fresh autumn sprig or colorful leaf, are all easy ways to achieve this.
