Thanksgiving Inspired Tablescapes

It's that wonderful time of the year!  It really is.  You just have to take control and let yourself be inspired.  Extra dinners with family and friends are quickly approaching.  While you're still working on the menus, here are a few inspirations for centerpieces and tablescapes.

But first, a word from the turkeys:

You don't mean to . . . you don't, do you!

You don't mean to . . . you don't, do you!

A roasted pig looks better on the table, don't you think?

That being said by our fine feathered friends, let's set the table! 

The following is one of my favorites.  The bouquet colors don't quite fit with Thanksgiving but of course that can be remedied by making or purchasing a fall arrangement.

I love these centerpieces.  They're so easy to put together!

Simple, yet stunningly beautiful centerpiece!

But on a grand scheme, especially for a wining buffet, this will blow the minds of your guests:

When you live in a coastal town, as do I, a nautical tablescape is quite natural to have on any holiday . . . in fact, any day of the week:

Tablescapes can be glamorous or very traditional or formal or playful.  But for those of us who prefer just the comfort of a lovely table, family and good friends, just a touch of love and simplicity fits best--as do the following table settings:
