Gorgeous Thanksgiving entertaining ideas

Are you ready for fabulous Thanksgiving photo overload? Chris of Celebrations at Home submitted this absolutely gorgeous Thanksgiving display, including a wine and cheese appetizer table, the tabletop for dinner and an after dinner coffee bar. I'm not sure which is my favorite, they are all so unique and pretty. I'd love to be a guest at this Thanksgiving affair.  And if you are hosting Thanksgiving and still planning last minute details, look no further!

All the details as told by Chris:

"I wanted to inspires readers to think "outside the box" for Thanksgiving decorating and pull things from around their home, as well as use a more modern color palette.

I created 3 areas for entertaining: The Tabletop, the Wine and Cheese appetizer bar, and the after-dinner Coffee bar.

I used old news print along with scrapbook paper, craft punches, stamps, and other adhesive embellishments to dress things up and make them coordinate with one another.

For the seated table I used old books, small statues, and an array of collected items to make an interesting centerpiece. A bunch of flowers for $15 adds life to the table and each place setting is complete with a mini pie and a Lucky Wishbone to make a wish with, and pull apart with another guest.

The wine and cheese area uses interesting vessels and display items to serve the food from. This is also where I set up a "thankful branch" with tags available to write on.

The coffee bar is a great place to end the meal with special add-ins like flavored liqueurs and chocolate mold stir sticks. Everything is unified by the colors and vintage-inspired details."
