Dress your table

My friends and I have been trying to make holiday dinner reservations to no avail. Some restaurants are booked, others are by invitation only. A few cannot guarantee that our enormous party will have tables together. Since when is 12 an exorbitant amount?

So it appears that we may be dining at one of our homes. That's fine. But what we really crave from our holiday dinners is the ambiance. We love the decor, the flourish.

It now falls to me to gather some mod Thanksgiving table decor ideas. And no, a simple runner will not do. We'll be serving our meal on simple white dishes, so there is little chance of the settings clashing with the centerpiece.

One of my fave ideas comes from Deborah Drury, owner of Deborah Drury Interior Design in Lexington, KY. She suggests painting the pumpkin a color of your choice for some added modern flare.
