When serving a bold and flavorful Thanksgiving dinner, the theme should carry over to the table setting. You don't need a tablecloth to add a sense of formality; a satin and embroidered runner is equally as festive. Set placemats in front of each chair and top with a shiny brown charger and white plate. Arrange the utensils and napkins on the placemats next to the chargers. Add white and red wine glasses to the upper right of the plate. Serve the food on light brown platters and the dessert in individual ramekins. Tea lights in globe candle holders create an illuminating and slightly romantic ambiance. Homemade leaf placecards provide an element of whimsy and a lush bouquet of plum flowers completes the look.
