Tomorrow is the big day, and if you’re like me, almost all your thinking has been about the Thanksgiving meal itself: “Who likes what?” “How long does that bake?” And “how many pans can I fit in the oven at once?”   

But a holiday meal should please the eye as well as the belly: It’s not too late to plan a handsome Thanksgiving tablescape. Here’s a roundup of my favorite ideas; I hope it inspires you to make something beautiful for your own celebration tomorrow.

A tablescape doesn’t have to be elaborate to look marvelous. Over at Homey Oh My!, blogger Amy starts with an heirloom table runner, adding her copper-striped mini pumpkins, copper-tape candle holders, and bright floral arrangements from Trader Joe’s. The metal accents add a dash of glam without overpowering the simplicity of the overall look.

2220 Canton 103 Living

I think you know by now that this building is pretty much my favorite lofts in Dallas. It has a great location, wonderful views, and fabulous amenities. And it has a true, open loft layout that makes any decor look swank.

These units aren’t often up for rent, and when they do, they tend to go for a high price. Perhaps you’re in a situation where you need to move and don’t quite have any furniture. Or you’re in Dallas only temporarily and don’t want to deal with the craziness of packing up all of your decor and furnishings and sending them to a new city only to do the same thing 12 months later.

2220 Canton 309 Living 1

I have met the loft of my dreams and it is inside 2220 Canton, the Farmers Market lofts that have some incredible amenities. I love slick, open floorplans with tons of windows, especially those cool industrial vintage crankcase steel ones. Just fabulous. This unit, which is perfect for someone relocating from another urban area like, say, Chicago or New York, and wants a walkable, fun location that is close to pretty much everything, but isn’t sandwiched between the copious $30K millionaires in Uptown (nothing against Uptown!).
