I'm in awe of those of you that can pull together an elegant table setting so effortlessly. I've already been panicking over setting my Thanksgiving table. We're just two weeks away from the big day and I have no idea what to do. I can never seem to pull it together the way I envision it in my mind, and I can never find the right linens and tableware for that perfectly coordinated look that I'm after!
Tablecloth or runner? Placemats or chargers? Centerpiece?? Candles - tapers, pillars, votives?? Which dinnerware? It's moments like these that I want to run to the nearest Pottery Barn or Williams Sonoma and buy absolutely everything they display for a Thanksgiving table...that's the only way I'd be able to achieve a lovely table setting!
I was watching Martha Stewart On Demand show how to set a Thanksgiving table and although I would never have chosen the pieces she had, I was blown away by how beautiful the table looked once she was finished layering everything. I just don't have the knack.
So I'm going to have to pull out what I have and see what I have to work with. For those of you with the magic touch for beautiful table settings, what's your secret?! Please share!
