Talkin' Turkey

I know that at this time of year we are inundated with images of turkeys (the living, not the cooked, type). Unfortunately, this much maligned bird is usually portrayed in a kitschy and at times tacky way. I personally love the turkey motif and find that the poor bird is not as ugly as many think. In fact, turkey motif items can be quite chic, believe it or not.

Tiffany & Co. has a few turkey related items that would set a stylish tone to any Thanksgiving tablesetting (they can be used for any fall or winter tablesetting, for that matter). My favorite is the sterling silver turkey carving set, of which I am lucky enough to own. Who wouldn't want to carve the holiday turkey, roast, or ham using these?

Tiffany has also designed a marvelous earthenware turkey that could be used as a table centerpiece or on the sideboard. I think it would look best in a slightly more casual environment.

For an elegant note to the Thanksgiving table, Mrs. John L. Strong has bronze-embossed turkey place cards. These would look great with guests' names written in calligraphy.

And for a touch of Tom Turkey at a reasonable price, why not buy some of these turkey candles from Gump's?
