Your Thanksgiving guests will think you are Martha!

Planning a gathering? Here are some great table ideas that will have your guests saying "Wow!" while cursing your craftiness under their breath! (photos courtesy of BHG)

Shown above, a great way to dress up your dining chairs. You could use satin ribbon as shown, for an elegant look, plaid or gingham for a more casual table. After Thanksgiving, trade the pinecone for a Christmas ornament!

Spray paint gourds and mini pumpkins and arrange on a cake stand. The bumpier the gourd, the better!

Cool easy centerpiece! Use wine glasses and fill with seasonal fruit, like cranberries, blueberries, rasperries and small oranges. Layer in pine needles and acorns and place a tealight on top. Line several up on your table for candlelit ambiance!

Festive napkin ties. Use real or faux acorns. Pop the acorn out of the stem and replace with a faux pearl. Attach with hot glue to a velvet or satin ribbon.

Freeform table centerpiece! Arrange small gourds, mini pumpkins, pinecones and fall foliage on an oblong or oval platter for a centerpiece that looks great and is simple to make!
