Don't stress over the Thanksgiving table... sometimes the simpler, the better. Purchase mini pumpkins and/or decorative gourds at the grocery store. Clip berry branches from your backyard. Layer apples and pears together on a large platter and nestle a few sprigs of your favorite greens in between. Fill different sized glass jars with an assortment of nuts and stagger them down the center of the table. Hollow out additional fruits to use as candle holders. Now take out your most humble dishes, bowls, candlesticks, and pitchers and have fun with the arrangement.
