We've never met someone who didn't like Thanksgiving—the long weekend, the quality family time, the turkey, the sleep-ins. 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 as home editors can do is make the process of setting the Thanksgiving table a lot easier. While it may seem like weeks away, Thanksgiving is fast approaching, so if you haven't yet started dreaming up a picture-perfect tablescape, now is the time.

From simple styling with your favorite dinnerware and a beautiful floral arrangement 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, bloggers, and entertainers to provide us with a healthy dose of tabletop inspiration, along with some tips to get you started. Pick your favorite and recreate the look—these Thanksgiving tabletops are deceptively simple.
