Thanksgiving: Decorating the Table
November 23, 2011 § 1 Comment
When it comes to Thanksgiving I like a simple table with natural elements. I headed to the fabric store last night to pick up some pieces to pull our table together. I knew we would be using green plates and white cloth napkins, so I wanted something clean yet festive to complement those colors. I chose a few yards of a muted green burlap to serve as the main runner, and then grabbed a roll of gold tulle to lay on top of the burlap for some sparkle and warmth. Then, down the center of the table, I’m placing miniature pumpkins with a few branches of red berries tucked underneath.
I’m so pleased with the results. And the best part? It cost me less than fifteen dollars. The only thing I paid for was the fabric and pumpkins (the berries I cut from our yard). This is proof you don’t need to spend a fortune! So when designing your table, first see what have around your house (both inside and out), then choose a simple color palette, and round out your plan with a few store bought elements.
There’s much cooking to be done so I’m off to the kitchen. I hope you all have a delicious Thanksgiving! Happy eating!
