Luscious Thanksgiving decor using material such as leaves and cuttings from your garden!
I dropped in on my client, Jill’s, ”gourmet garden” today and in the process saved her about $10 dollars on decor for her Thanksgiving table!
I found all of the “decor” in her garden and some of it I picked up from the ground.
“Shh, don’t tell Jill!”
Table decor can be as simple and fragrant as this foliage and fruit collection set around a candle lamp
I wasn’t there on a creative call, I was just there to do a little weeding and pruning, but in usual Shirley manner, my creative juices flared when I got a whiff of Jill’s rosemary!
Trim your rosemary, but don’t throw away the cuttings! Cook or decorate with it.
I made a clean cut on some broken limbs and saved the foliage for my creation and picked some lemons for Jill to use in her kitchen.
There were three delicious pomegranates ready for picking, so they had no choice but to be part of the “mad creation!”
The curvaceous leaves on the fig tree caught my eye too.
I gathered my leaves, rosemary and fruit and started on my very simple and fragrant arrangement
The candle was crying out for some company, so I came to it’s rescue!
The impromptu arrangement is pretty, fragrant and best of all, edible! Win, win, win.
Does your garden or yard have interesting fallen leaves, seed pods or fruit that you can use for holiday decor?
Don’t be shy, there is no “correct” way to decorate.
Put something together that makes you smile and makes you feel like an artist.
