Give Guests a Preview

Elegant letterpress menu cards add a nice finishing touch to the place setting and tell guests what yummy dishes are coming. Personalized, they will become mementos of the event for everyone to take home.

Add Black for Big Impact

Use a black place mat, napkin, and charger, but lighten the look with a white dinner plate. For a more traditional Thanksgiving color, try linens in chocolate brown.

Choose a Charming Mascot

Provide a bit of whimsy to your gathering with a cute little critter. Pewter place card holders paired with letterpress cards pay homage to the humble squirrel.

Repeat as Necessary

Rectangular tables scream for repetition. Todd used four arrangements and two dramatic silver antler candelabras to complete his look.

Select Something Large and Something Small

Select Something Large and Something Small

The best-looking tables mix up the scale. Choose something big for dramatic impact, and finish with something small, such as these little votives. Success is in the details.

Send each guest home with a token of your gratitude. Todd treats guests to scented candles in beribboned black boxes. The fun squirrel card reminds guests of his mascot and the wonderful meal they shared.
