I am definitely the more casual style table decorator so love the second example using everyday dishes, fall tones and gourds. I love how you elevated the little gourds and pumpkins on the glass cake pedestal.

Thanks, Sue! I like the leaf-shaped placemat, myself. They’re only $1.99 at BB&B, so if you spill on them (and I always spill something), it’s not a big deal.

I just wanted to let you know, I was at a friend’s house today helping her decorate her table for Thanksgiving and used your “elevated gourds on cake pedestal” idea. It looks great! I didn’t catch those leaf placemats the first time, those are cool. I am notorious for spilling cranberry sauce and red wine.

That’s great, Sue! Glad to hear you were inspired. Those placemats are great for spillers. They’re really inexpensive so you can stock up and there’s no heartbreak if you soak one with Cabernet. Check them out here: Felt Leaf Placemats
