Key elements to consider for Fall Holiday decorating...a guideline

Let's set the table!
I have fond memories of helping my mother and grandmother set the table as a child. But in today's world, many of us are eating at the kitchen bar, or in front of the tv, or at our desk. Thanksgiving might be one of the few times we completely set the table. Let's "take a moment" and look at three basic table settings - basic, casual, and formal. I've provided diagrams so you can see where to place each plate, napkin and fork.

Purple at Thanksgiving? Absolutely.
Haven't decided about your table setting? Try something a little surprising and use PURPLE in your Thanksgiving table decorations! Actually, purple is one of the most common colors for the fall season. Personally, I think that an all purple table would be amazing but, probably too much... but it looks great when combined with warm colors like gold, orange, yellow, cream, white or burgundy. And because purple comes in shades of lavender to deep wine, there are even more decorations you can try. Get some purple napkins, add some silvered or orange pumpkins and pick up magnolia leaves and other greenery from your yard. Combine it with some inexpensive flowers and candles from one of your last minute runs to the grocery store, and you'll have a wonderful , casual centerpiece!
Not sure about using purple? Pops of bright color mingled with green always work!

These bundles are on my Thanksgiving table every year
Take fresh or canned whole green beans and wrap into bundles with bacon secured with toothpicks. You can cut the bacon in half and make smaller ones or use a whole piece for larger portions. Plan on at least 2 bundles per guest. Place in a pyrex dish and cover with italian dressing--Wishbone works best but any vinaigrette will do. Cover and place in frig overnight until ready to cook. Cook at 350 until bacon is done. I've cooked them for 30 min up to an hour. Be sure to remind everyone to remove the toothpicks before eating or they'll be in a for a surprise! 😂
Come sit with me and let's design your room.
