I was thinking about Thanksgiving and how to dress up the table with color and texture that would compliment the seasonal feast. Keeping it simple and natural, I started pulling some things out. I had everything on hand for this project, except some fresh fruit which I picked up on a quick errand to the market. Do you remember the planter box hubby built for me out of fence board? Well, it’s been painted once again, creamy white in a rustic sort of way.
The box resembles a gathering basket and was filled with fruit, nuts, berries, wheat and colorful leaves.
I placed a leafy garland on the bottom of the box and started layering the bountiful harvest, scattering walnuts on top for extra texture.
And while taking pictures of the centerpiece I decided to pull out some of my dishes for more of a visual effect.
This type of arrangement placed in the center of the table leaves plenty of room for yummy side dishes or dessert items.
All of this came together in a very short amount of time….so if you are looking for an easy centerpiece to dress up your holiday table, just add some fruit, berries and nuts in a bowl or box and you’ll be set.
Til next time….
