Come Party With Me: My First Thanksgiving — The Look

For your first Thanksgiving don't worry about decorating your entire house, instead make sure everything is CLEAN and light a fire if you have a fire place. Focus your energy on creating a gorgeous table setting. Start looking for table decor now — a few weeks before the dinner — and set the table several days before Thanksgiving. Cover the table with a deep chocolate brown cloth. On top of this, add a colorful red and orange runner, and matching placemats. For a beautiful yet affordable centerpiece, arrange collected, dried leaves, pumpkins, and dried wheat. Simple, shiny plates put attention on the food and not the dinnerware. Light candles and fill vases with autumn colored flowers. Invest in a large turkey serving platter, festive napkin rings, and a wine glass set complete with water glasses.

I say clean AFTER the party. When guests arrive, keep the light dim so they can't see that you haven't cleaned.
