Thanksgiving Tabletop: Beachy Elegance

Many of you may be spending Thanksgiving in a warm climate or perhaps you are heading out to the beach regardless of it being off season. With a view of the ocean or a sea breeze nearby, you may not be in the mood for a traditional Thanksgiving color palette. Instead pickup on your beach surroundings and go for Ikat pattern placemats or tablecloth in stone blue and gold. Weave in some seasonal elements such as sparkly gold leaves and fall flowers, along with a mix of heirloom silverware and vintage glassware for an an inviting table that is dressed up "just enough."

Simple yellow fall flowers, casually arranged in a Nantucket like basket add some beachy warmth and serve as party favors too. 

For easy to put together place card holders, use saved champagne and wine corks. Simply cut a groove across the top and slide in a folded blank 3x5 index card with designated name. In keeping with the theme, place the cork on top of a shell shape dish or shells from the shore.
