Look, Thanksgiving deserves its three weeks of November all to itself. Nobody's horning in on Christmas' time. Thanksgiving is a less stressed, better version of Christmas. It's like the delicious appetizer before Christmas. The decorating and preparation is calmer, more understated, elegant, dignified and poised. Erinn Valencich over on HGTV shows us that Thanksgiving decor has gone way beyond pilgrims and turkey statues. If you want to get in the mood, just take a look at these sophisticated tablescapes that will inspire you to get Autumny creative. I'm doing the top one with the white pumpkin.
It's pretty much a guarantee if you pour some of your DIY Decorating magic into this gathering, you'll begin to understand why it deserves it's own unadulterated time.
