By now you may have figured out that I am chicken obsessed - both live and representations!! This tabletop is all about chickens.
From the runner that I've bragged about in the past with great fabric from England called "Feather and Egg," to the mugs and napkin holders I found on eBay a few years ago. It's fun to have a collection of items and a theme for your tabletop.
What are your favorite tabletop themes?

The tradition that I created was simplicity -- make a few fish dishes that are a snap, set up a buffet table and then enjoy each other around a roaring fire!!

For right now, my everyday before Christmas tabletop is a fantastic 12 Days of Christmas cookie jar from Williams-Sonoma, combined with a table runner that I made this summer with feathers and eggs. The red color does the trick for me. I add a hint of green with the candles in my antique English barley twist candlesticks. Simple is good. And the hidden treat is better!!

The winter landscape often offers that perfect hint of color for your flower arrangements. Here, I added winterberry and inkberry to a store-bought bouquet. Just looking at it makes me happy!

How can you resist??
Maple Cream Pie with gluten free crust
Cranberry Raisin Pie
What I love about this arrangement is the desserts are three different heights so it adds interest to what everyone already knows will be a sweet sensory overload. It also begs the question are they in height order of deliciousness? Only my Thanksgiving guests know the answer. But, really, isn't it a matter of taste?
