This is the time of year we gather around the table to spend time with our close family and friends. Why not have fun with your table, here are some ideas to get you started:

Make sure the dishes you pick are a great match for your style and budget. You can find items at discount stores such as Wal-Mart, Kohl’s or Home Goods, websites,  shop sales at department stores or home good stores like West Elm and Crate and Barrel. Sometimes you can find great deals at flea markets or garage sales also. Look for unique items to complement your dishes, like great stemware, different napkin rings, or linens.

Can’t find a complete set of something that tickles your fancy, why not try mix and matching two different sets? Doing this will allow you also to change the style of your table when you feel like it without having to purchase a whole new set.

To make it all work concentrate on unifying theme-such as  color, style, shape. Personally I like to start with a classic white dinner plate and add different salad plates, bowls and glasses  to give a pop to the table. Have fun and don’t be afraid to try something different, even a new set of candle holders or fun linens can make a table look completely different.

To get some idea’s flowing take a look at these sites, if your Thanksgiving table was eye inspiring I would love to see!

Have a great Thanksgiving, enjoy your family and friends!
