I found that leaves, pine cones and cinnamon sticks
are a good way to decorate
the Thanksgiving table
without spending a fortune.
So here are my suggestions:
♥ Visit the nearest park and pick up some pine leaves, pine cones, mistletoe branches and plane leaves of different colours (red, yellow etc).
♥ Make assortments of dried flowers, leaves and combine them together to make whimsical wreaths.
♥ Buy some cheap white candles and decorate them with cinnamon sticks and mistletoe branches. The heat of the candles will warm the cinnamon sticks and that will make your home smell like cinnamon roll bunnies and we all love these, don't we?
♥ On the dinner table use pine cones to place the guest cards, so that you let your guests know where is their sit.
♥ Hang on the walls some plane leaves of different colours attached on a string. For a more festive look, add some glitter glue on one side of them!
♥ Cut some vertical thin slices of small branches and engrave letters to synthesize a welcoming phrase. Hang your creation on the wall above your table
♥ Last but not least, use some pine leaves for decoration when wrapping your guest gifts or when writing their place guest cards. It is a little detail, but has a great effect on the festivity feeling.
Let me know if you find these ideas useful!
