Upgrade Your Thanksgiving Table Settings
If You Have a Vintage Mishmash…
Roll with it, using every beautiful pattern at once. The trick is to clarify the chaos (and turn down the granny factor) with
a neat, crisp canvas: Plain white linens let you indulge your eclectic tendencies and show off all your favorites. If you
happen to have a collection of mismatched goblets, throw them in, too—they look logical if the shapes and sizes are similar.
For decoration, try a row of tiny cabbages in small glasses down the middle of the table. Add a personal item (here, a jade
bust) to play up the found-treasures charm of the scene.
