Thanksgiving brings to mind a vision of bounty — of the harvest “safely gathered in,” and plenty of food, friends, and fun. With these ideas for table settings and centerpieces, you can put your own touch of “abundance” on the table even before dinner is served! Baskets of gourds or fruit are always appropriate — but have you ever made a basket literally out of acorns or other nuts in shells? Candles are a super touch; pair lime-green candles with apples in a large glass bowl, or tall cranberry-toned tapers with red glassware, truly striking with white dishes. A colorful table runner printed with autumn leaves is a fabulous base for a grouping of the “real thing” — dried leaves, gourds, or other seasonal fare. And, on a polished tabletop, a string of tiny pine cones and pumpkins down the center is magic.

Beige or white china complements orange, gold, and red candles; black-edged plates with a bright treat in their centers — Indian corn, fruit, flowers, autumn leaves, or even an artichoke! — are great “place cards.” Edge clear plates with sprigs of bittersweet; against gold-trimmed china or glassware, it’s fabulous. Or, dress up ordinary items: tie a velvet ribbon around each set of knife, fork, and spoon and fan them out next to the plates — or use acorn-shaped “hot pads” for the table — and simple things become special. And how about a “Thanksgiving tree” centerpiece, hung with acorns you’ve painted yourself? These ideas and many others here should spark your imagination: so go ahead, have fun with your table this holiday!
