Two years ago we hosted Thanksgiving at our house. My grandmother had just passed away earlier that month and so it was a special tribute for me to be able to use her gorgeous china.
I also used pine cones as card holders for place settings. A hollowed out pumpkin made a lovely vase/centerpiece. Martha taught me how to fold napkins into a "lotus", which made the perfect place for the pine cones. It all came together quite nicely!
Send me your table settings if you'd like to share them and I'll post them here!
