Buffet Table Setting

Buffet Table Setting

Harvest a bushel of compliments with a dazzling Thanksgiving Day dessert buffet!

To create pretty pedestals like the ones shown above, hunt in your cupboards for glass plates, platters, cake stands, vases, bowls and other containers in various shapes and sizes.

Fill the pedestals with any number of autumn elements. We used acorns, miniature ornamental pumpkins and assorted silk leaves. Other ideas include candy corn, fresh cranberries, Indian corn kernels, cinnamon sticks, miniature gourds and pineĀ­cones.

Set the serving platters on the pedestals, making sure they're sitting steadily. (You may want to use double stick tape or floral adhesive to hold them in place.)

To finish off the lovely look, we filled a glass vase with stems of dried Japanese lanterns and set out orange candles in crystal candlesticks.
