Table Runners Make a Thanksgiving Table Special

A Thanksgiving table runner sets the tone for the holiday table decoration. When it's time for the big turkey feast, you'll want the presentation of the meal to look extra special. When friends and family gather around, a pretty table runner adds that little extra that shows your caring touch.

Fall colors and motifs look great on your holiday table, so let's look at turkeys, leaves and other traditional and even some not-so-traditional designs to pretty up your table for Thanksgiving.
