I have always appreciated a great presentation on any occasion. When I was little I loved setting the table. I would even wake my sister up with breakfast in bed because I loved arranging a tray. Seriously. At eight years old. She would promptly tell me to get out of her room and let her sleep but I was quite satisfied with myself for my presentation and didn't mind being kicked out. Ahhh aesthetic oblivion.
The table setting has continued into my adult life. So much so that while cleaning out my office area I came across some extra fabric from this little install and stopped everything to set up a table scape. Again, seriously.
I love the play of colors - bringing in navy and purple is a fun contrast to the expected reds, browns and oranges that you typically see at Thanksgiving. Oh man...now I want a turkey sandwich...
