Thanksgiving Tablescaping Challenge

There’s a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving as it’s a time of togetherness and gratitude. We hope you’ll share your traditions and participate in El Monte’s Thanksgiving Tablescaping Challenge.

Tablescaping is the art of dressing your table for a dinner party or special occasion.  Starting with the tablecloths, you color-coordinate and theme your way up to the napkins, plates, bowls, salt and pepper shakers, candles, and finish off with a vase of flowers or a bowl of fresh seasonal fruit.  Some may be crafty and design homemade place settings or have a special setting just for the kids.

Categories for the THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPING CHALLENGE will include:
