Look for Versatile Pieces

Your coffee table is a prime place to display seasonal decor, but that doesn't mean you're relegated to in-your-face pumpkins and gourds for fall. Invest in metallic pieces that you love and can reuse the rest of the year. Here, a gold vase and urchin add a little extra glitz for fall.

Create a Festive Centerpiece

Bring in the harvest of the season to make a striking tabletop display. Create a festive centerpiece in a metallic pot, and tie it all together with candlesticks, chargers, and flatware. Mix your metals or stick to just one. The choice is completely up to you. Image via Dimples and Tangles.

Dress Up Your Tabletop

Add some sparkle to your Thanksgiving table by mixing in metallics with an antique silver tray. This one gives order to a collection of candlesticks. When the candles are lighted for your gathering, the tray will reflect and provide an enchanting glow. Don't have an antique tray? Try your hand at scoring one at a flea market or thrift store, or feature a family heirloom in its place.
