Table the issue

Is Thanksgiving a big family get together at your house?  It is at mine and we've always had family and friends come over and squeeze around the table until we literally cannot fit any more.  I'd like to have some semblance of a Thanksgiving-themed table setting this year, keeping in mind that the table surface will be crowded with food.  This will be the first year my family will have done anything like this.  Below are a few holiday table inspirations I found on the internets!  Any easy and cheap decorating tips that you'd like to share?

I like Real Simple's simple red ribbon and placemats paired with print napkins - this can easily be translated into a Thanksgiving colour scheme

A bold coloured napkin amongst a white tablecloth and white dishes also makes a statement - although you'd have to make sure your servingware can fit with the theme as well

Maybe a glint of gold among your typical orange and browns?  (PS - The plates are at West Elm and are on SALE!)

These floating candles are easy and the glass pebbles could be changed for different colours

Create a simple centerpiece with the white pumpkins left over from Halloween

  5. I really like using natural elements to decorate. I love that photo with the pine cones! I also like the idea of using hollowed-out baby pumpkins as candle holders and little pears with name tags as place settings.
