By now, you’ve tallied the guest list, plotted your Thanksgiving menu and are seeking inspiration for some extra side dishes and desserts. When next week rolls around — all that planning behind you and a job well done — don’t let your dishes fall flat on an unadorned table. Giving your dining room (or den-turned-dining space) a fresh Thanksgiving feel doesn’t have to be that difficult — or costly.
First: Assess your style. If your home features minimalist furniture and a monochromatic color scheme, you’re not likely going to throw a cornucopia in the center of your table. We have Thanksgiving table decorating plans for three distinct environments: Rustic, Modern and Traditional.
