the thanksgiving table, part I

with thanksgiving a little over a week away, i'm assuming that those of you hosting a meal this holiday are scrambling to get things together to decorate your home and table. as important as the food is to guests, having a stunning table on which to share it is equally important and here are a few fun pictures/ideas to get you inspired!

this one is fairly traditional but i love the different levels!
i love two things about this setting: 1) the shiny pumpkins (what a pretty and simple idea. once can of spray paint and...done) 2) the untraditional use of blue. i don't think you really have to use red, orange, yellow and brown to make a stunning holiday table.

i really like this idea. start with a white tablecloth, scatter it with leaves, real or artificial (use double-sided tape to keep them in place), and cover them with another sheer tablecloth. so pretty!
this one is my favorite! i never thought these ugly "chinese chestnuts" as we call them here could be cute but this is probably my favorite placecard idea ever.

i like this arrangement of eucalyptus branches and osage oranges!
