Last week I posted my tips for making your holiday dinner successful (and less stressful)...and I really do follow those tips. So this week I am doing tip #3…setting the table in advance!
But first…I have 2 confessions to make when it comes to fall holidays and decorating.
The first is that I spend a lot more time planning and decorating for Halloween than I do for Thanksgiving (even though I am usually serving dinner for at least 12 people).
The second is that I don’t like orange very much. So all of the pumpkins and fall leaves that are traditionally part of fall decorating rarely make an appearance at my house.
Both of those confessions have a lot to do with my choice of purple for my Thanksgiving table:
1. I had a roll of purple damask lace left over from my Halloween party that I wanted to use.
2. Purple is not orange (that’s pretty obvious).
And that’s how my silver and purple Thanksgiving table setting came to be. Keep reading to see how it turned out!
