Thanksgiving Inspirations

It's November!  The month when we really focus on being Thankful for all our Blessings.  I thought I would get together some tablescape inspirations for you just in case your the one hosting the annual Thanksgiving feast this year.
If you want to go all out, take a tip from Country Living and layer on the Autumn Charm.  Menu Cards and Pillar Candles are wrapped in turkey cameos for a touch of elegance.  A ruffled runner, lots of mini pumpkins and Maple leaves add to the lush feeling of this table setting.
 A different view of the same table, I love the layered plates (they don't match) but they all pull a color from the Autumn spectrum.
 This table from Better Homes and Gardens, uses natural elements to bring Fall's bounty to the table.  The simplicity of one maple leaf tucked into each napkin is pure understated elegance.
Adding the pop of green by simply placing a Granny Smith Apple on top of a Brown Damask Napkin is pure genius. The rest of the table is different shades of brown and white, but this table by Burlap and Crystal, is just lovely
This Centerpiece by Country Living is a wooden trough filled with Fall Leaves, pine-cones  acorns, winter squash,  apples,  and two pillar candles. I love the Autumn Bounty feel it brings to this buffet table. 
This is my table setting.  I found this table cloth at the  ARC thrift shop and I found the turkey salad plates and candle holders at Home Goods. It's almost a pastel setting, but I love that it's so calming, and romantic.  The fall bowls were for a give-away and the vintage looking pieces are by Teena Flanner

This pastel setting is by Martha Stewart, I love the pale greens, ivory and whites together.  This is simple elegance at it's best.
I love this woodland setting by Better Homes and Gardens.  I almost expect to hear birds chirping. White Birch branches  berries, pine cones, mini pumpkins and vases of birdseed bring this vignette to life.
Don't forget to send your guests home with plenty of leftovers.  You can find boxes at your local craft store.  Embellish them with ribbon, stickers and tags that you can find at your local craft store (in the scrap-booking section) or print them up on your computer.
If you have any questions about any of these ideas, please just ask :)
