Yesterday Sara Kate asked for photos of your Thanksgiving tables. We'll post a roundup soon of the beautiful tables that you've sent in. Meanwhile, here's mine. Well, I actually didn't get one good shot of everything on the table on Thanksgiving itself; I completely forgot, in the hustle and bustle of cooking. But I did get a few shots of the placesettings and centerpiece. For the centerpiece we bought a few bunches of inexpensive white carnations, which are really so lovely when they are featured for their own sake and not as filler in grocery store bouquets. And usually I don't like using food for decorative purposes that won't allow it to be eaten later, but I make an exception for cranberries. Floating in water is rather similar their natural habitat, after all. For each placesetting we just ironed each napkin , placed it in the center of the plate, and added a little placecard tied to an apple with red and white twine. This was very easy and quick - even for a cook in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner. Keep on sending us those Thanksgiving tables - we love seeing them.
