the thanksgiving table, part II

so tomorrow's the big day! hopefully your linens have been pressed, your pies have been baked (i made a delicious looking pumpkin one this afternoon), and your home is filled with the warmth and sounds of family and loved ones. while i find it extremely important to have a gorgeous table around which to gather, i shouldn't forget the thing for which i'm most thankful: those that gather around it with me! here are a few more ideas to inspire you! happy day-before-thanksgiving!

it's definitely going to be too cold in north carolina for this idea, but if you live somewhere warm this time of year, i think sharing a meal outside would be so much fun!

i saw this idea done recently at an open house and it was so totally cute: use real pumpkins as serving dishes! love it. also, i like votives in tall glass vases. a very good idea for the table - with all the passing and reaching, open flames can always be a little dangerous at my house!

i ripped this out of a pottery barn catalog recently. while this table is a little bit over-the-top for my taste, i am completely obsessed with the idea of bringing natural elements indoors. who knew sticks could be so classy? this works with lots of natural things, too: pinecones, holly, evergreen boughs, berries, etc. take a walk in your yard and be creative!
