The Thankful Table


To get started on selecting the perfect centerpiece for your "Thankful Table" choose something low, so your guests don't have to crane their necks to see each other for making conversation.  Consider the shape of your table: Oblong tables look great with a long and low centerpiece with candles.  Round tables look best with round shaped centerpieces.  If candlelight is formal for your dinner, a cornucopia is the traditional basket for Thanksgiving.  



These solid milk chocolate turkeys make a fun treat for your place settings.  If an origami turkey folded napkin sounds time consuming, try some festive ribbon tied on a simple fold instead.  We love the idea of using paint pen to write your guests names on mini pumpkins as place cards.  A large pumpkin can be used for everyone to write on it what they are thankful for.



How will you be serving your Thanksgiving dinner?  Sit down, family style, or buffet?

If you happen to be serving a buffet, an upright vase of autumn flowers makes the perfect accent for your feast on display.  We hope our ideas have been helpful in choosing fresh flowers and accents for your celebration.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at
