Idea 1: An un-fork-ettable Thanksgiving wreath

Feast your eyes on this elegant and easy-to-make wreath! All you need are spoons in harvest hues of cream and orange — give it a glint of gold with a layer of gold forks! Cut out a circle from a piece of black poster board (available at Party City stores), then glue a layer of gold forks to the circle edge. When the forks have dried, glue the orange and cream-colored spoons on top, alternating between colors. Finally, hang with a piece of ribbon and write a simple saying in the center with chalk to greet your guests to the feast!

Idea 2: A toast to being thankful!

Set up a simple beverage bar of refreshments for your friends and family to help themselves. Visit your local Party City store to print stickers for wine bottles – write in festive sayings or have them printed. Keep with the color pattern by gluing a circle of green tissue paper to the bottom of a clear platter. Arrange beverages, glasses and napkins with some festive fall touches like mini pumpkins and burlap wine covers for a festive and fab drink bar.

Idea 3: Energize autumn hues with a burst of green!

Start with a neutral-colored table cover, like burlap from your local crafts store, then make a single connected placemat from green chevron tissue paper to flow from one end of the table to the other. Make the designs pop by layering a patterned paper plate on a clear charger with coordinating solid-colored cups and napkins. A mini faux pumpkin makes an excellent place-card holder — just pop on a little bow and the name of the guest you're thankful for!

Idea 4: Cook up a refreshing Thanksgiving table

For a modern Thanksgiving table, play with bold colors and cheerful patterns. Mingling vibrant shades of orange and green will really give your tablescape a trendy feel. Try including white gourds or other white accents among all the bright colors to break things up with a touch of the unexpected.
