Happy Thanksgiving - Table Inspiration

With Thanksgiving in a few days, many of us are preparing for our big feast. Whether going out of town to visit family or hosting your own Thanksgiving, we all could use a bit of table decor inspiration. Taking advantage of the colors of fall to adorn the table, use candles, flowers and even produce to make your statement. Adding a clean and simple place card will add a touch of modern to your traditional Thanksgiving.

A whimsical Thanksgiving with paper leaves or a fanciful tree as decoration for your table. Bring in the fun colors from some ripened pears and a fall squash.

For a more formal table setting use candlesticks and fresh flowers adorned with gourds and your very best china.

Add some spunk to the table using white pumpkins and an array of vases. Add a graphic table runner and place mats for a more contemporary feel.

Create a graphic Thanksgiving with a fun message on each plate and a great place card. Even set a children's table covered in paper for the kids to draw on while they eat.
