Happy Thanksgiving, design fans! I spotted today’s find while browsing yet more last-minute side dish ideas in the November issue of our sister publication, Food Network Magazine. How impressive that amidst all the lush recipes and food photography (S’more Pie! Alton Brown’s Popovers!), they still managed to fit in some lovely rustic goodies for your tabletop, like these Log Salt & Pepper Shakers from Old Faithful Shop.

Our tablescape will be a bit more gilded and high-glam this year, but I think it’s nice to mix in some forest elements as a subtle nod to what early Thanksgivings must have been like. And these little acacia shakers are so clever. They really do look like logs! They’re the perfect way to add seasonings to the season.

What are you most thankful for today? Tell us in the comments!
