holiday table

One of the fun things about hosting Thanksgiving was the excuse to use my various serving dishes (which definitely don't get used for normal dinners around here - not doing extra dishes when it's just the two of us!) and set the table all fancy. I have all white dishes and serving platters/bowls, so they go with everything and I can change things up for various occasions with different linens. We had our dinner late, so I took a few photos of the set table before it got dark out... it was loaded with food soon enough.

I went with a gold + rustic/fall colors theme, with gold chargers from Target and some fallish napkins and a table runner I already had around. I tied in the table with the banner I made for the mantel, bringing in some twine on the candle and to tie placecard tags to the napkins. I punched the tags out of gold paper and put stickers similar to the banner font to mark each person's first initial. A super easy but festive set up - which could be very easily changed to a December holiday party table by switching out the runner and napkins.
