I went very natural this year on my table-most is from our new property. Have a great Thanksgiving, all!

Bittersweet, pumpkins, feathers, sunflowers,grasses, leaves-so much of what you can use is right in your backyard-have fun and be creative! (All of these were made by friends,family and me)

Thanksgiving Planning

Sadly I am JUST starting to think about how to decorate my table for Thanksgiving this year. I looked back to pictures I took last year for some inspiration…I love putting the flowers in a clear vase loaded with cranberries (they don’t get mushy for a week)…all receive a chocolate turkey…..sprinkling corn (just buy popcorn) and Lindt chocolates wrapped in gold make a pretty filler…

Thanksgiving 2011

This is how I decorated my table last year. I took my Williamsburg Apple Tree Form centerpiece and instead of using apples or fruit, I used small pumpkins.Then I trimmed some of my vines in the house and wrapped those around the pumpkins. Needing more color I then went for a walk and gathered pretty leaves and put those in as well.I was happy with the result!

Fill Em Up

A great way to add a little interest to your Thanksgiving table is by filling glass vases with either corn,candy corn or cranberries and put large candles on top. Cranberries are great because you can also use them with flowers. They can last as long as the flowers do without getting mushy. If you don’t use a lot they sort of float to the top  and look great also.
