5 Easy and Quick Thanksgiving Table Decorations

I love parties that are over the top with decorations and tablescapes but sometimes simple is more elegant.  Especially at Thanksgiving, it seems that we automatically want to concentrate more on those around the table than the decorations.  Besides that, if you have your table full of wonderful decorations, where do you put the food if not on a buffet?

There are many occasions that the center of the table, the runner, is the buffet table.  That's when individual touches come into play.

Simple ribbon tied around a napkin, folding a napkin, or by placing tea lights at each setting saves time and money allowing you more peace of mind.

Use what you have on hand.  Because even if your dishes or silverware aren't complete sets, they will add authenticity and personality to your table.
