Setting the table with those special touches White Plates: They go with everything (especially an added pattern)! With a thin metallic rim, these plates add more dimension than a plain white dish might.
Color, $44 each.
Textured Placemat: These add depth to a table setting and are easy to clean. They're cork-backed and fully wipe-able.
AshBlue, $65 for a set of four.
Large Buffet Napkins: Large cloth napkins keep guests happy. We love the oversized orange print on an off-white background.
The Beveled Edge, $70 for a set of 6.
Mint Julep cups: Add traditional Southern items to your table like these silver min julep cups, which double as low-lying vases. These are our own and are in use 12 months out of the year. Recycled Glassware: These up-cycled wine bottles are great for tea, water and cocktails.
Obelisk, $10 for each tall glass. Harpeth Gallery, $35 for a set of four short glasses.
Tree Trunk slices: Trivets that instantly make for a welcome table.
World Market, $20 each.
Stone Turkey: This small stone turkey makes for a simply perfect centerpiece.
The Beveled Edge, $90.
Our fantasty Thanksgiving table? It's set outdoors at mid-afternoon next to a roaring fire pit. As the sun start to set and a brisk fall evening moves in, we take the party indoors for coffee and dessert. That scene might never actually materialize, but the ambiance can with a few carefully curated items. Use them indoors for an organic twist on the traditional meal. But most importantly, keep it simple and plan ahead—two tips that will have everyone saying thanks.
