In our November issue I was one of three editors asked to set a table as they would for Thanksgiving. It was a fun assignment, I brought in dishes, silverware and glasses from home - mixing in some pieces that I collect with some porcelain pieces that I made. They are all shades of white so they mix really nicely together. I made a table runner and napkins with linen yardage, incorporating the selvage edge. It can often be quite beautiful and looks like a fringe trim. Grayline linen and B & J fabrics have great selections of linen at affordable prices.
I am a bit shy when it comes to flower arranging so I made it easy by using spider mums and craspedia in shallow bowls and cups down the table. My favorite part of our Thanksgiving table is making place cards with my niece. She decided to make drawings of the flowers for everyone's place.
How are you setting your table this Thanksgiving?
