thanksgiving recipe

We're not hosting Thanksgiving this year. I've hosted in the past, and loved it, but there's no space in our little abode conducive to having lots of people over for a sit down dinner. Sigh. Someday.

Not surprising, one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is setting the table. It's a work of art in and of itself. Below is a recipe to help those of you who are hosting to set the perfect Thanksgiving table.

{One part flowers.}

Amazingly perfect *fall* arrangement.

Why not try something different this year? Deep purples feels dramatic and luxurious.

I love gathering up fall leaves and laying them around the table. They're always such a nice addition.

{Three parts candles.}

I'm not sure you can have too many candles when entertaining. There is nothing that sets the mood better.

Love the candles in mason jars.

Votives are easy and easily dressed up.

{Linens for all.}

{Place cards. Add as necessary for a little extra spice.}

We're so informal around our home, that I've never done place cards for a gathering. But I love them. So many ways to be creative and add punch to your table setting.

This is perfect.

{Dash of family heirlooms.}

Especially if you're hosting family. What a nice way to incorporate items that have special meaning for everyone attending.

{Five parts, or more, thankfulness.}

In the midst of all the busy preparations, it's important to not lose sight of the reason for the holiday.

Take time to say or write the reasons you're thankful this year. This lovely idea is great for you and your guests to enjoy.
