Countdown to Thanksgiving: The Perfect Place Settings

With Turkey Day right around the corner, one thought crossing your mind at the moment may be how to create a beautiful, yet unique holiday spread for the table top.  Oh the options! Do you go with the gourds and dried leaves?  Twine and kraft paper menus?  Turkeys shaped out of cardboard and fall-colored tissue paper?  As endless as it may seem, let’s focus on adding life to your tablecloth by bringing in fabulously patterned dinnerware.  From high to low, you can outfit your cupboards with lively designs that take the pressure off having to adorn the table with not much more than some floral sprigs and festive cloth napkins.  Here are some of our favorite plates for your festive holiday gathering…
