Tabletop Ideas for a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Like Eddie Ross said for his article on Lonny magazine, the key to a stunning tabletop is to edit it. You need to put just enough elements to create drama and interest. One way to achieve the look is to mix vintage and modern.

This is a fall tabletop that Eddie created with Jaithan Kochar for the October/November 2010 issue of Lonny magazine. Do not worry if you do not find the right color of napkins. Use an old trick, Tintex fabric dye to transform plain white napkins. It works very well. I did it many years ago with a pair of jeans that I wanted to be reddish pink. I am glad that Eddie reminded me of this easy DIY project. You can buy Tintex at some drug stores and at fabric stores.

Easy Food Presentations

On the same issue, I spotted two modern rustic ways to serve simple food to your guests this Thanksgiving. The glassware is from Steuben.

To my Canadian readers, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving while our American friends enjoy Columbus Day. I can inspire you if you need last minute menu ideas for your Thanksgiving dinner.
