Thanksgiving is a perfect time to take a moment, stop, think about all that we have to be grateful for and give thanks. This can be done anywhere but there is something about going around the Thanksgiving table and having each person express what they are grateful for in their own words that brings us back to what this day is really all about.
The centerpiece can be a reflection of the incredible bounty that comes from nature. Thanksgiving is a time of harvest and what better way to depict this than a cornucopia over flowing with fall goodies.
Candles add a lovely glow to the fall colors and scattered gems on the table. A variety of heights in the decorations adds interest to the eye. Tall candles are great as long as they are slender and don’t block the view across the table. Remember to use unscented candles too. You wouldn’t want any candle smells in conflict with the dinner you have been creating for days!
Tablecloths, napkins and dinnerware in fall colors and harvest designs help make the statement of abundance. They remind us how grateful we are to be together, about to share the wonderful feast that will soon appear on these plates!
Place an inspirational quote on each persons plate printed on fall stationary. A quote that expresses the meaning of Thanksgiving, Gratitude and Blessing to you. A grateful heart can inspire those around you. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
