I think Thanksgiving should be simple and elegant and I carry that theme throughout my food preparation to my table settings. Allow me to share my simple and elegant tips for Thanksgiving so you can count your blessings and eat too much just like everyone else.
SWAG IS ELEGANT
Before I start, I put down a tablecloth. To me, a tablecloth simply s the single most dressy piece of the table right? It gives the look and feel that you want to convey and then you can build from there. I love that the tablecloths I choose are stain resistant and wash machine friendly.
Never do I worry about anything being dropped, because I just toss it into the washer. Simple and easy. Pick one that can be used from Halloween to Thanksgiving, get your money’s worth!
Fall Harvest Swag makes the table all come together and this piece is lovely.
All I did was place it on the table and it looks elegant right?
White Pumpkins are Simple & Elegant
Everything seems to be orange in the season. Don’t settle for orange seek out a white ceramic pumpkin.
White with gold, and suddenly simple, sophisticated and elegant are on the table!
Elegant As Fine China
Without delay, do not take out the fine china, no one wants to stand there and wash it. The china has to be hand-washed which is another obvious reason to forego usage! At least for the kids table anyway!
Dress the table up but without all the fuss, your new best friend will be a garbage can, rather than a dishwasher. No more dishpan hands, no more China, and easy cleanup are here to indulge in one of my luxury tips!
Stack on top of the other and then place a Thanksgiving Turkey Beverage napkin atop. Before you stop stacking, add on the Thanksgiving Turkey Food Picks.
APPETIZERS & PICKS
Given these points, those Turkey Picks are perfect for picking up appetizers you would rather not put forks out for.
Such as those infamous cranberry sauteed meatball appetizers and cheese chunks that Aunt Martha always brings!
Consequently, the beverage napkin will save your countertops and furniture from Uncle Joe’s drinks as they sweat.
It’s funny how much more work there is when a houseful of people come together. Also, what your peeves are may not be someone else’s so crisis management AHEAD is easier than dealing with the outcomes! Just saying.
Add In A New Family Member
We love accent pieces and then of course they become the center of topic. Sometimes there can be ‘odd’ moments and this is the item that can bring it all back together! No more speechless moments, just something to fill the air.
Hello Mr. Scarecrow! Plus, read on for a little humor. Yes I find that it is a necessity for some that have that one relative….
Up to the present time, the family has been family, but add in the Standing Scarecrow and you have a new mate! Let Aunt Bertha talk his ear off, he won’t mind! He’s all stuffed up anyway!
The Simple & Elegant Thanksgiving Table
All things considered, the Thanksgiving table does not have to take a lot of time to prepare, it just takes the right table decor to style it. Tradition is what you make it, so keep it simple and elegant and your kids will thank you! Now go dig into that pumpkin pie & add some whipped cream for me! ~ Dana
