The Thanksgiving Tablescape

The best part of preparing for the Thanksgiving meal is taking a break from the cooking to create the table. You know what my dad always said…”Sell the sizzle…then the steak.” Set a table that says to your guests that you have been waiting just for them. Your table can’t be an afterthought.

This year’s table is a cornucopia of frosted fruit, acorn candle holders, fall picks and garlands with a sheer bronze beaded scarf for splash. My friend Cindy Dyer stopped by just when I was decorating. Her advice: “Just when you think you are done, throw in some more. Make it pop!”

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
