How do you decorate a table for Thanksgiving?

Your Thanksgiving table should be decorated with a beautiful blend of stylish, seasonal decor and practical dinnerware and serveware. 

Think of your tablescape in layers. Layer 1, your foundation layer, can start with a tablecloth, placemats, and napkins. Layer 2, everything you need to eat your Thanksgiving dinner, plates, cutlery, glassware, and serveware. Layer 3, (the fun bit) think decoration, from candles and pumpkins to vases of fall flowers and foliage, perfect for a Thanksgiving centerpiece idea, this layer is all about making your table look beautiful and feel more in sync with the season.

Whether you want to embrace a bright and colorful theme, or are looking to create a more rustic Thanksgiving table, create a dining space that is inviting, eye-catching, and special for you and your guests.
