Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many of us welcome friends and family into our homes. Becky Levin Navarro of Pearl events Austin came by to give us tips for setting the table like a pro. First, incorporate fall colors into your decor. Whip out the fine China for the adults and keep centerpieces low. The beautiful fall inspired centerpieces Becky showed us are from Westbank Flower Market. Another idea to keep in mind is making the kids feel special to. The famous ‘holiday kid table’ is sometimes dreaded to sit at… at least it was for me. The adult table is usually a ‘no kids zone’ decked out with shiny, pretty and breakable stuff worth more than your net worth. However, Becky transforms the ‘kid table’ into a kid-friendly version b She gave us cute DIY ideas to spruce up the table keeping the kiddos entertained. For example a centerpiece that is edible: a apple transformed into a turkey. Becky gave us some awesome inspiration and tips for using disposable ware without it looking cheap. It’s a easy cleanup and it’s not breakable. Becky set the kid’s table with paper festive dishes, cocktail napkins and chic plastic ware. She even mimicked the adults champagne flutes with plastic flutes for the kid’s sparkling cider.
