Martha Stewart is the master. Not every thanksgiving table has to be topped with the usual cornucopia, or even a selection of squash. This ingenious setting is recommended for kids, but who can resist it at any age? It's a nod to the Mayflower lets you celebrate the pilgrims without having to don the bonnets and over-sized buckles we usually associate with them.
You can find a template for the centerpiece as well as instructions for these adorable boat place cards online at Martha Stewart. For those coveting the map tablecloth, head to Art.com for a great selection of vintage maps, or find one you like online and have it enlarged and printed for the occasion.
