Thanksgiving officially kicks off the holiday season, which means we’re in for a month (at least!) of eating,  lots of eating. But the most wonderful time of the year is also about decor and entertaining, too — but it doesn’t have to be an arduous task! With the help of a pro, you can have your table set in no time. Ahead, five simple touches — straight from Maison & Objet trade fair in Paris — that can make your ordinary Thanksgiving table extraordinary.



Favorite decor detail of the moment: our Debi Lilly Design velvet pumpkins (and new baby acorns) to dress the table, mantle and more. Layer with fresh mini pumpkins, florals, candles and rose petals for fast, easy style. Available inside Safeway Albertsons stores coast-to-coast. (Jewel in Chicago, Vons/Pavillions in LA).

Now trending: gold! Layer with gilded charger plates for gorgeous glamor at each setting. Opt for a more muted gold for a more classy look.

Cluster copper vases filled with textural, chic floral bouquets down the center of the table along with gilded pumpkin spice candles and velvet pumpkins at each setting for instant style.

Style up your dining table in a flash with neutral, on trend kraft paper, layered with a muted gold paper runner on top. When it comes to combinations, the possibilities are endless!

A sprig of seeded eucalyptus at each setting adds a soft, organic touch. Add a pop of color by introducing berries or a colored tie.
