Mini pumpkins are everywhere! You might even have some left over from Halloween. Simply cut a hole large enough into the top of each pumpkin and insert a tea light candle. Scatter them down the center of your table and put one at each place setting. When the day is done, you can throw them away or compost them. The days of scraping wax off of your crystal candle sticks after dinner will be a thing of the past!

For a slightly more elegant look, use plain satin ribbon tied in a simple bow. Because the ribbon has a more delicate feel I liked the addition of a small thyme sprig.

Instead of placing flower arrangements in the center of your table, use a small glass votive candle holders filled with fresh herbs! I used rosemary and thyme and then wrapped each container with a bit of jute twine. Each guest will feel extra special with there own individual arrangement.

Laying out my serving platters and bowls is essential to staying organized and making sure everything fits on the table. I like to mark each serving piece with a sticky note, making it easy to remember what goes where. It's also handy because guests can assist you in placing items onto the table. They will not have to second-guess if they are grabbing the correct "big white bowl" as you shout from the kitchen (chances are there are more than one)!

Use simple jute twine, wrap it around the napkin multiple times and tie a double knot to secure for a simple napkin ring. I placed a rosemary sprig to add a touch of color to my monochromatic table. Guests will also love the aroma.

I hope one of my simple ideas makes it onto your Thanksgiving table!
