Counting Down to a Great Tablescape

Thanksgiving is one of the best times to really put your decorating skills to task. The table design can’t be too cluttered because it has to accompany the enormous spread of traditional dishes, but it has to be pleasing to the eye and let your guests know that it is not your typical dinner setting.

I have just fallen in love with a fellow blogger and designer. His name is Eddie Ross and he is a senior style editor for the holy grail, Martha Stewart Living. He is a Top Design contestant, a designer, and a blogger. His blog is so addictive that I have lost hours scrolling through his gorgeous images of flea market finds paired with Target buys. This man is amazing!

Here is one of his ideas for a simple table setting.

This is a very rustic setting and gives a nod to the historical beginnings of our Thanksgiving traditions. What’s so wonderful about this particular setting is that Eddie has paired antique utensils, this is a monogrammed Cristophle spoon with…TARGET napkins!

This was actually a table setting for a simple, Fall dinner for Eddie and family. But I think it can certainly make for a perfect Rustic Thanksgiving setting.
