    I always set the table the night before Thanksgiving and one thing I remember from childhood is that my Nana always gave the children blank placecards and crayons for us to make the placecards for everyone. Our family had big Sunday dinners together at least twice a month so for Thanksgiving we didn’t really need place cards since we knew where we were supposed to sit anyways, but the homemade placecards were a nice touch and kept the ones too young to be that much help out of the kitchen!

    For a fall table setting I scatter leaves in orange and red down the center of the table. I use tall, thin tapers for soft lighting without blocking anyone’s view (unscented). The centerpiece is usually a carved glass bowl filled with pine cones and glittery christmas ornaments in silver and gold that shimmer in the candlelight. To finish it off I place a few pine cones on top of the foliage to tie it all together. The overall effect is simple, elegant, and just seasonal enough!

    My best table setting tip that I learned from my SIL is give yourself a couple days, even a week to set your table, getting your tablecloth perfect to candles, decorations, flowers whatever you like, look at it every day see what it needs or what can be taken away, guests should say wow when they enter your dining room.

    I have so many fancy dishes that I love to put out for special occasions, I tried for many years to make it “just perfect” but I have learned that it really does not matter what you have on your table, what matters most is the people who are sitting around that table with you – enjoy them! For many years from now no one will remember how you set your table, but they will remember the good times they shared sitting around it.

    PS – I still put out all of the fancy stuff and put my heart into cooking and what goes on the table, but have learned to pay more attention to the people I am sharing it with.

    I tend to keep my table decorations to a minimum (and a low height) since I don’t have a buffet: all the food has to go somewhere on the table. That doesn’t mean the table isn’t pretty…it’s just very functional too. :)

    I always make sure the centerpiece is something low profile so it does not hinder the sightline of guests. This makes it much easier for guest that are sitting across from each other to have a conversation.

    Thanksgiving day is so busy with cooking, I set the table perfectly the weekend before and cover it with a clean bed sheet until Thursday.

    This jogged a memory. When I was little, and trying to learn to set the table properly, I made up this rhyme to jog my memory:

    “The spoon and the knife go on the right.
    The fork goes on the left.
    The spoon guards the knife with all its might.
    The fork stands by itself”

    Obviously, we set a basic southern table….two forks were not even considered.

    I put salt, pepper, napkins & butter on the table so that no one has to bring them from the kitchen.

    Make your table a comfortable and welcoming place by knowing your guests and making it suitable for them. I like to serve their favorite drinks and keep in mind their style. Also, adding fresh flowers and pops of color brings cheer to any dining table. Most importantly, make your guests feel special by enjoying each other’s company! Laughter always compliments any meal!

    Place Holders for Kids: Encourage Independence and Reading/Writing
    Out of necessity, to keep the peace at dinner time, I came up with the routine of using porcelain place holders to let the kids know where to sit. The children were 1, 3 and 5 and loved the idea of having their own place marker. To encourage participation, whoever helped with dinner and/or setting the table, was able to put out the place holders. They loved deciding where our family of five sat for dinner. They quickly learned to read the names of our family members. I bought more for grandparents and guests too. Later they learned with a sharpie and nail polish remover… they could write the names themselves and even add designs. My kids are now 14, 16, and 18; they still like using them! :) Is there a way to attach a picture? I took one to share.

    I really like putting individual votive or tea lights at each place setting. There is so much to choose from in that size and it is less expensive too.

    I am fortunate to have inherited several silver patterns & I never set a table with matching silverware. I love the eclectic look of an assortment of vintage silver!

    I like to buy the mini clay pots for starting herbs or other seeds and paint them for the occasion, using gold or silver for Christmas, pastels for Easter, etc., I put each person’s initials on them and fill them with candy of the season. I Set one by each place setting as a “place card”.

    To find the perfect dimensions for a tablecloth, I take butcher’s twine and hang one length of the twine long-ways my dining room table where I would want a tablecloth to hang. I snip it at the right spot where I would want my tablecloth to end. I do the same for the width. I take the two snipped lengths of string and measure them for the exact dimensions of my tablecloth. (This also works well to determine dust ruffle dimensions. The string hangs like fabric would, so you get it just right!)

    We had a small bbq this summer and i used solo cups with their names written name on them. I put them around the table,,that way they knew where they would be sitting. It worked out great!

    I place cloth napkins in napkin rings, fan out the napkin ends and turn them horizontally so that they look like a bow. A napkin bow sits in the middle of each dinner plate, demonstrating the wonderful dinner “gift” that awaits each guest.

    When serving a meal country/family style, I like tave a tray or charger for each dish in the centerthe table, that way everything gets back in the right spot after it’s been passed and there’s no shuffling things to get that last dish back so we can all enjoy our meal.rating. of Cake stands work well to raise some higher as well to aide in setting a large meal on a cramped table.

    For more important occasions (birthdays, holidays, etc.) I like to incorporate a small favor for guests to take home into the place setting. Recently, I hosted a bridal shower brunch and placed vintage hankerchiefs embroidered with the guest’s monogram at each seat.
