Seriously, it took me five minutes. Granted, I used the same plates and placemats that were already displayed in our dining room but even if I had to add these, it would be close to a “Five Minute Thanksgiving Table”.
What is the trick to this fast table setting? Using swags as a centerpieces. Swags are meant to hang above doors or hallways, and they usually have a bendable metal frame. All I did was straighten out the swag to eliminate the curve and add it to the center of the table. In this case I used two since my table is so long.
Then I added these leaf napkin rings to some bright orange cotton napkins. I placed the napkin above the plate so the napkin ring would stand out a bit more.
The finishing touch was the green goblets. Well, the real finishing touch will be the turkey but that will take a bit more than five minutes to finish up!
This is a very quick and easy tablesetting even if it takes you longer than five minutes. I will share another thanksgiving table setting later this week so stay tuned. In the meantime, share with me your favorite ways to set a thanksgiving table.
