thanksgiving. turkey + cooking + entertaining = madness. or usually, so it seems.
but it doesn't have to.
in the hopes of keeping things simple and beautiful, i put together a table using natural elements found in my local grocery store, like unshelled nuts, cranberries and apples.
i hand-lettered things i am grateful for on the runner beneath the dishes. guests can add to the list as well as gain inspiration for the gratitude boxes at each place setting.
madness doesn't have to ensue this holiday. just use what you have on hand and keep the essence of the holiday the main thing. enjoy and happy thanksgiving!
