Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Whether you are planning a friendsgiving party, a family dinner, or a celebration for two, here are easy-as-pie ideas for making your table beautiful so that you can focus on the people and blessings you are thankful for.
Workers in the cut flowers industry are often among the most vulnerable in the world. Fruit and veggies make beautiful fillers in place of flowers. Here, we used oranges, apples, and tiny pumpkins. Pair them with in season greens from your own back yard and when your guests go home, they can take some along!
Add character to your table with thrifted finds. Habitat for Humanity Re-Store and the Salvation Army Thrift Store are two of my favorite places to shop – and they support a great cause!
Mix casual and classy when “accessorizing” your table. Get fancy with a candelabra, but stay comfortable with mason jar glasses and napkins. Click here to shop some of my fair trade favorites from The Little Market.
Use warm tones like gold and copper in favor of silver and chrome.

Don’t stress over decor. Enjoy the time with family and friends, say thank You for the blessings in your life, and let this season put into perspective what are the big things and what are the small. Then treat them accordingly. Savor … and not just the pumpkin pie.

One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is taking turns saying something we’re thankful for. Consider implementing that into your family dinner this year and you can even start early with our Gratefulness Challenge!
Think of one thing you are thankful for each day in November and post it with the hashtag #morethankful.
