Fresh and Modern Alabama Thanksgiving Menu
Get decorating tips from one of the South's premiere cheesemaker, Tasia Malakasis:
- The centerpiece: Give a nod to the harvest by pairing autumnal floral arrangements with bundles of wheat sheaves; wrap them in burlap and satin ribbons.
- The place cards: Instead of using written cards, fill small frames with photos of each guest.
- The kids' table: Mimic the adult table but with more kid-friendly picks: pewter julep cups, everyday white plates, and paper napkins with place mats. Wrap napkins with ribbons, and attach feather plumes for a festive headdress.
- The place setting: Keep your table simple and timeless by topping silver chargers with white plates. Layer an oversize linen napkin between the plates to add natural texture.
