Although I've made a Thanksgiving turkey or two and side dishes, I've never hosted a Thanksgiving meal. Since becoming grown ups and moving here, my hub and I have always traveled back home to the Pittsburgh area or gone to my sister's house in Hollidaysburg. While I may not have hosted the biggest food fest of the year for many Americans, I do know how to set a --- in a word from the Food Network's Sandra Lee --- tablescape. Comfy chairs are a must, and I love having two head chairs that are different from the side chairs at a table. It keeps it from being so stuffy. I like simple table runners rather than a tablecloth. Tablecloths are annoying. They catch on your legs and get in the way. Besides who would want to cover up that beautiful table. Always, always, always add a bit of vintage to everything. At least that is my motto. I'm pretty sure we had these green glasses growing up. I wanted to use vintage handkerchiefs for napkins, but they just didn't look right with the rest of the tablescape. But I still love the idea. I love these wooden plates. I'm not sure how they'd hold up over time, but for a special occasion why not. Pairing the wooden plates with gold silverware is just almost too beautiful for words to me. I'm a total weirdo like that. Pastry stands to highlight the tasty end of a fabulous meal feels fun, and each place setting gets a golden apple with a name tag pinned to it. 1. High back chair, Cymax Stores 2.
