This Week's Top 5 Favorite 1stdibs Items: Unique Table Arrangement Ideas!

Thanksgiving is just right around the corner and if you find yourself the host of a gathering at your home, you might be wondering right about now how you'll be dressing that table. Never mind traditional tablecloths and place mats, we've found five interesting accessories that when used alone (or even paired with one another) will make a Thanksgiving table arrangement to remember! Though, we should say, we think these items would go great with a traditionally decked out table, too.

1) A grouping of Michael Lax ceramics
These would work best with a dark-colored table or tablecloth, in order to enhance the contrast between these ceramic pieces and what they're sitting on. Place fruits, nuts, flowers, plants or other interesting items in these pieces to create a dynamic arrangement!
Price: $895
Kerson 20th Century Design

Instead of boring old tea light and candleholders this Thanksgiving, why not accompany your candles with bright and gorgeous jewelry? These bejeweled bracelets would be perfect for spreading out in the middle of your table and placing a few candles in between. These would really add some sparkle to your arrangement!

Woodard and Greenstein

3) Pair of Sterling Silver Five Light Candelabra
Candelabras have been falling out of favor ever since the invention of electrical lighting, and what a shame! These substantial but modern pieces would look positively elegant decked out with slender tapered candles.
Price: $8,800
Douglas Rosin

4) Hand Carved Cow Skull
Infuse your table with a Wild West theme with a hand carved cow skull made out of mahogany (no, no cows were harmed during the creation of this piece).
Price: $425

5) Collection of Murano Sommerso Glass Vases
Steal the stage back from the food and overwhelm the senses with these gorgeous, jewel-colored glass vases, perfect for flowers, candles and more.

Dealer: Talisman
