How do you set your Thanksgiving table? Are you the elegant-use-your-china type? Or are you the more casual and anything goes type? At one time I did use my china on Thanksgiving, however I no longer have formal China. I do have a rustic style set of dishes and accessories that I use only on Thanksgiving. I take them out and clean them and admire them once each year. Sounds silly but that's what I do. What about you?
Check out the beautiful table settings below for ideas. The images are linked and the websites are also full of more Thanksgiving ideas!
Do you know or care to know how to do a proper place setting? I sort of have my own way and it's close enough to the "proper" way. Below are examples of formal and informal table settings.
Proper Place Setting Formal and Informal
Don't ever stress over "formalities". Just do whatever you like and make it your own.
