You all know I love Table settings and this table is so pretty. Brought to us by the Blog Simplified Bee – Lots of lovely ideas here.
Although this tablescape is very warm and loving, I do have a few of minor grips.
I love the plates but if you haven’t inherited them, I do not want you to go out and buy them for one meal, there are many other ways to make a solid colored plate work. It is not just the cost, but the storage, we need to put away and remember where they are in time for next year. Major hassle at a busy time.
The second thing is the wine glasses they have nuts in them, these would need to be removed if you are to use the glasses. Questions: are the nuts washed and where do we put them when they are tossed out of the wine glass and can we eat them, where are the nutcrackers? I could go on…
The third thing is Candles. I love candles. In this setting the votives are unnecessary and take up space that should be reserved for food. I also think they are a fire hazard, very easy to set fire to a loose sleeve at this height. Also, it should be pointed out that it is never a good idea to have scented candles on a dining table, we want to smell the food, not the candles. The hurricanes are beautiful, but take up a lot of space. It perffectly fine to have some decorative things on the table during appetizers as long as they can be remove quickly and without disruption. These are a complex arrangements that would have to be lifted away in three of four moves each.
The Thanksgiving table needs to have a lots of room for food, the sharing and passing of it. So, ditch the clutter and embrace the turkey. That’s why we are here. Family, Love and Plenty. The food should smell good, taste good and look good. If you have that you are good to go.
Often times a table like this is done to show the decorators skill and it is beautiful and on the surface practical, but on closer analysis it is not.
Sorry folks, but an overdecorated table is usually very inefficient.
