3 Last-Minute Hacks For The Perfect Thanksgiving Tablescape

Another year, another Thanksgiving where we find ourselves a tad behind schedule for the influx of family soon to be gathering in our dining room. While it's true we may not have the whole prepping-in-advance thing down just yet, there's no reason anyone else has to know that. To get our tablescapes up to par on the fly, we teamed up with Smirnoff to create three easy, beautiful decor hacks that will impress even the judgiest of the bunch (ahem, Aunt Carol). Now all that's left to worry about is how to dodge those questions about our relationship status.
