This and That . . . {+ two last minute Thanksgiving Table Settings}

The other day I posted easy fall centerpiece ideas that would also be perfect for Thanksgiving. For today, I came across these great Thanksgiving Table Settings from Country Living that I wanted to share with you before the weekly This and That {sales, discounts, events and more}. My favorite is the ribbon napkin holders as this can easily be used for any holiday and can serve double duty for weddings as the place card. Simply write your guests names on cardstock, punch holes on both sides and then thread your ribbon of choice thru the holes after wrapping ribbon underneath napkin.
