Thanksgiving is known for its Turkey Trots and Gobble Walks, all taking place before the actual big Thanksgiving Feast. At these community events, we are either on the sidelines cheering on family members or actually hitting the sidewalk ourselves. Setting the Thanksgiving table beforehand may be all you need to feel a little more prepared, so after the trots and walks you are table-set-ready! Lets start with the runner, a table runners that is.

A simple table runner such as this one found at Target has a subtle linen texture that is a perfect accessory for your table. Place a simple floral arrangement with pumpkins, branches and leaves from your backyard to give an all-natural style suitable for the Thanksgiving theme.

An idea for the kids’ table is a long strip of brown construction paper with crayons allowing kids to make turkey handprints or write or draw what they are grateful for. You could also put little pumpkins on each place setting and let them color and write on them. Polaroid cameras are also a fun way to capture memories at the table.

Table setting is a trendy business these days, and with Thanksgiving upon us we hope these simple yet classy ideas can be used not only for Thanksgiving, but the other holidays as well.

From our kitchen to yours- with a dash of cinnamon and a dollop of whipped cream,
