The holidays, while seemingly far off still, have a tendency to sneak up on us. This year we're determined to be prepared. And while we don't think we'll be able to wrestle hosting Christmas dinner away from our mothers, we are going to make a play for Thanksgiving. We're aiming to impress, not only with our awesome turkey basting skills, but with our gorgeous tablescapes, too. We're thinking less Sandra Lee gaudy and more rustic chic. The Pottery Barn Gilt Charger ($11) is the perfect plate to play host to our cranberry sauce and unlumpy gravy (we will pick out all the lumps by hand if we have to!).
