A Thanksgiving table does not have to be fancy. A fun placemat, flowers (or a touch of nature) and one or two fall accent pieces is all you need. Using white dinnerware and serve ware helps keep it simple and classic.
For this table, we used a round petal placemat with a simple napkin and homemade place cards. We brought fall colors to the table with a burnt orange water glass and turned it up a notch with a fancy wine glass. The ivory flatware used is perfect for Thanksgiving. We were fortunate enough to have this beautiful pumpkin cake as the centerpiece. If you don’t have that as your centerpiece, add a flower display or large hurricanes.
