Is The Table Set Yet?

When setting your table for Thanksgiving this year - embellish your napkins for an elegant table!

Here are some of our favorite things to use:

1.Go out and gather some acorns - if it is missing the bottom, hot glue a pearl, or another "gem" in the top for some festive fun! Glue the acorns onto your ribbon, or a stick to tuck into the ribbon.

2.After tying the ribbon onto your napkin, tuck in a few leaves - either real or artificial

3. Tuck some wheat into the ribbon - if you want, spray paint the wheat to your liking - silver, gold or copper...the hot, hot colors to accessorize with this season!

4. Make a napkin ring out of grapevine and put some sprigs of bittersweet in with it - they could be parting favors for your guests.
