Guest Post: Nautical Thanksgiving Table

With Thanksgiving only a few days away, we are putting the final touches on our festive tablescapes. Last week, we brought you a guest post by Katie Benson of #TableSettingIsMyLife with some adorable ideas for your Thanksgiving kids table. Today, Katie used her home on the Sandy Hook Bay as inspiration for this Jersey Shore Thanksgiving tablescape. 
While many people associate coastal design with summer, adding a few beach accessories to any fall centerpiece can set your table décor apart.
Even if your home is nowhere near the ocean, why not add a little seaside flair to your dinner table? After all, the first Thanksgiving was a coastal one.
Did you know there was no turkey served at the original Thanksgiving? In fact, it is widely believed by food historians that the pilgrims served shellfish, such as lobster, clams and mussels! 
So this year, why not think outside the fall foliage box? 
Using common beach accents alongside your traditional Thanksgiving décor gives your holiday a relaxed feel that will have your guests imagining the sand beneath their feet and the salt in the air!
