Setting The Table: Part One - Tapers
Taking the time to set a gorgeous Thanksgiving table is a great way to welcome your family and friends.
One way to evoke a warm, welcoming feeling is with candlelight. The soft illumination instantly brings life and warmth to your room. A classic table setting uses taper candles in holders as the primary focus. This look adds a bit of height and elegance.
Here are a few ways you can incorporate taper candles into your tablescape.
Include seasonal elements like greenery and pinecones around your tapers to bring a bit of the outdoors in. Add baby pumpkins, gourds, or acorns for an autumn touch. Finish the look with sprigs of berries and some ribbon for a pop of color.
Stick with the timeless look of a long row of simple tapers, laid out on a beautiful tablecloth or runner. You can even set some small tea lights or votives around the bases for an extra glow.
Whichever option you choose, be sure to use flameless LED taper candles. This ensures that your table will be free of dripping wax and safe for the whole family. Most feature a timer so you don't have to worry about turning them on and off. And, they fit in most standard taper candle holders.
