    because the size of our apartment in new york was prohibitive, we never really hosted any formal dinner parties. at most, we'd have a few friends over for drinks - and even that would get a bit cramped. but now that we're in a house, I'm much more excited about entertaining and have been trying to learn all about everything that goes into hosting a fantastic dinner party. one aspect of hosting that particularly appeals to me is the process of putting together a great tablescape to help set the tone of your event.
    we'll be traveling this year for thanksgiving, but I've still really enjoyed scrolling through photos online of beautiful thanksgiving tablescapes. people are so talented! a few of my favorite tables are pictured below - and, who knows, maybe I'll try to recreate one of these for next year's thanksgiving celebration!
