Gorgeous Inspiration for Your Thanksgiving Tablescape
We've never met someone who didn't like Thanksgiving—the long weekend, the quality family time, the turkey, the mornings spent sleeping in. Every aspect of the holiday is designed to help you slow down, relax, and indulge. But for the hosts and hostesses, it's an entirely different ball game: Preordering the turkey before it sells out, delegating tasks to family members, coordinating menus, shopping lists, and sleeping arrangements can get exhausting fast. The least we can do is help you set your Thanksgiving table. While it may seem like weeks away, the holidays are fast approaching, so if you haven't yet started dreaming up a picture-perfect Thanksgiving tablescape, now is the time.
From simple styling with your favorite dinnerware and beautiful floral arrangements to more elaborate looks with calligraphed menus and layered table linens, there's always a way to make your table feel festive, no matter how much time and money you want to spend. We turned to our favorite hostesses and entertainers to provide us with a healthy dose of tabletop inspiration, along with some tips to get you started. Pick your favorite, and re-create the look—these Thanksgiving tablescapes are deceptively simple.
