Is your fine silverware showing its age? Instead of breaking out the polish, complement the tarnish with a rustic display. Use burlap napkins and twine, and add a dried colored twig or flower stem from your garden.

Forget the tablecloths this Thanksgiving. Put down a woven placemat and provide your guests with more than one napkin—one for the lap, and one to wipe hands. Mix-and-match the colors.

So you’re having a buffet dinner. Don’t make everyone pick up their plates at the table, get their food, then go back to the table. Leave the plates at the buffet, and give your guests beautiful place settings sans saucers.  Give everyone their own cranberry sauce, grapes or berries, and mixed nuts. Add a branch for accent.
