15. Aside from the other accurate observations here, I'm sorry, but - it's just ODD.

Was she trying to put a modern twist on some greater Thanksgiving theme? Okay with the little pumpkins (I believe they're actually gourds) and pine cones. I LOVE pine cones! Nearly obsessed. I must have worked on eleventy-bazillion craft projects with pine cones by now. But - driftwood and a jumbo clam shell? Is this for some upcoming Holiday-at-Mar-a-Lago thing? These are visual mixed metaphors that just don't mix well. Unless the theme is "A South Sea Island Thanksgiving!" in which they've stuffed the turkey with pineapple and other tropical fruit, and they're serving the big family meal on banana leaves or something.

I'd be more tempted to fill that clam shell with a whole lot of shiny plain round mini ornaments, in different colors. No texture. It is a nice shell (says one who enjoys collecting them). The driftwood makes it look trashy, though. But the big shell thing is a misinterpretation. Doesn't fit. If the big white shell is the main design element, then everything else needs to be holiday-colored. How 'bout gold, red, and green?

Ivanka's taste and style choices are often questionable. For example, the tight, sexy, asymmetrical dress she wore to Daddy's State of the Union speech was celebrity cocktail-party stuff. NOT for an event of this kind. This table theme really misses the mark.
