Add a colorful touch to your holiday gathering with these
Wondering what to do this year for your holiday decorating. With family coming for Thanksgiving you want
to add a touch of color and warmth. They
key is to surround your home and create a tablescape with warm colors &
terracotta tones. Add burnt orange
blooms, petite pumpkins, and rustic touches with plain clay flowerpots.
The terracotta pottery has a warm tone to it that
compliments the orange and rust colored flowers. Line your table with pots of mums and
geraniums so that after the holiday they will still last and you can enjoy the
pots for months not days.
Use clay flowerpots as place-cards, to hold crayons for children to use and
have them decorate a picture you can all share.
This is not the time for bright spring colored planters or plant
materials. Rust, orange, wine, forest
green, deep reds, terracotta, browns & burnt tones.
Try to sprinkle a splash or two around the house. Place flowerpots on side tables on the entry
hall. Of course, adding a few pumpkins or gourds always decorates things
up. Donít forget to put pots, pumpkins
and mums at the front door so that your guests will be welcomed with a splash
of color and a touch of the Thanksgiving holiday. Fill pots with candy corn and sweet treats. The point is to have fun, come up with clever
ideas and enjoy the holiday.
