It’s Thanksgiving, you’re slaving away in the kitchen and you haven't even thought about decorating the table. Don’t let this happen to you! With a little planning, you can set a beautiful table in practically no time. Use leftover decorative pumpkins and dried corn painted in bold colors that pop to create a stunning freeform centerpiece. Leaves from the backyard, painted red and affixed to inexpensive napkin rings, make cute place cards. Cheap, chic and done in no time. Bonus points if you set the table with my Effortless Table plates like I did here.
Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
