Design Tip of the Week (11.17.08): Getting Your Holiday Table Set

The holidays are around the corner and if you're an aspiring Martha Stewart you are probably thinking about what your tablescape is going to look like. So in honor of the beginning of the holiday season, P4D wants to help you put together a table that will complement your gourmet meal....or will help to detract from a dry tasting turkey and burnt yams.

Using a fall color palette with and a hint of the best color of the fall season, PURPLE, here are some tablescape necessities to create a fun table that will get your guests eyeing more than the stuffing.

Start with this rich chocolate brown table cloth with gold accents that add a little bit of an ethnic feel.

Play to the gold and top the table with a pretty gold runner.
Now for the PURPLE! Add these purple placemats and matching napkins from Fiesta.
And tie it back to the color scheme and the ethnic theme by adding these gold napkin rings.
Finish your look with an original centerpiece to act as a focal point. We LOVE this idea posted by the Decorating Diva that uses vegetables as candle holders.

P4D will bring you more Holiday Table Setting installments throughout this week to get you all ready for Thanksgiving!
