With the year slowly fading through the rear view, it's time to think about giving thanks, and to plan our Thanksgiving 2017 celebrations. Dress up your turkey, pies and libations by adding festive touches to the table — with hits of floral, prints in blues and greens, as well as pops of shimmer in champagne or gold, these pieces carry a feeling of luxe, without a heavy price tag. Choose one or two pieces to update your existing tablescape, or shop multiple items to reimagine your entire dinner setting. The lesson here, thankfully, is that you don't have to spend a ton to have a chic and cheerful holiday!
