Thanksgiving Tablescapes



 2947

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we wanted to show you a few super easy tablescapes that we think are wonderful.  Many use garden containers and others you will see you can use whatever you want.  Glass jars, ceramic vases and even a stunning display using no container at all.

Letís start with this table arrangement shown above.  As you can see the center of the table is dominated with a large garden planter that is over flowing with colorful gourds.  Fill in around the container with green plant materials that bring a realistic touch.  The base of the garden urn is covered with more pumpkins and gourds and dried berries.  This is a large and dramatic look.  By using such bold bright colorful materials, you can stick with clear glass and simple place settings.

Our next idea is a simple thank-full tree.  Have each guest write on a paper leaf what they are thank full for this past year.  Tie each leaf on to a branch of the thankful tree.  To make the tree, collect garden branches and stack them into a lovely vase.  Place the vase into the center of the dining room table.  This creates an inter-active beautiful centerscape that is lovely.

This idea is really neat because no garden container is used.  The center of the table is draped with silk fall leaf boughs.  We love the way it drapes over the sides and lands on the ground.  There are a few candles set among the leaves but that is all.  Itís so simple and yet amazing that anybody can re-create this idea.  Easy Peasy!

The final tablescape uses 2 white pineapple vases that are filled with straw.  With the fall leaves draped over the chandelier the table doesnít need any more color.  The white vases add an elegance that is subtle and dramatic.  Using your garden containers, vases & planters make creating a table that is memorable and beautiful is much easier than you think.

Thanksgiving Decorating Tips



 DIY Decorating a Thanksgiving table with garden pottery

Add a colorful touch to your holiday gathering with these tips.

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.


Turn Flowerpots into a Thanksgiving tablescape

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.

DIY Thanksgiving Placecards using clay flowerpots

Create lasting memories and good fun by making these Thanksgiving place-cards

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and share your home with loved ones.  As everyone gathers together for a wonderful day of celebration, we would like to share a few craft ideas that will make the day more fun and decorative.

These personalized place card are made from miniature clay flowerpots and are so easy to do.  We have one for adults that should be made in advance and another for children.  These are as simple as a few glue sticks, feathers, candy, or markers.  Have a place set up in the morning so when the children arrive they have a place to sit and get started.  Make sure that there is always adult supervision.  This will give the children something to do why the adults watch football and cook.

Adult Project:

Gather 3Ēclay flowerpots. We have them in many sizes including the 3Ēso click here to shop.
Acrylic paint in black, white, red and blue.
Paintbrush
Craft Foam in black, yellow, green & purple.  These come in sheets at the local craft stores.
Scissors
Thick white crafts glue
Black Fabric paint pen

Decorate the pots by painting each black and allow to dry.  Choose a color to paint the band around the top of each pot. Let dry.  Make white dots on the rest of each by dipping the handle end of the paintbrush in white and dotting the pots surface.
Add brims by tracing a circle from black foam about Ĺ inch wider all around then the pot opening using a glass lid. Cut out.

Make the buckles by measuring the width of the band, cut a rectangle from foam that measures about 1/8Ē deeper than the band.  Cut out a smaller rectangle from the center. Glue the buckle to band and let dry.
Lastly, personalize each pot hat with the paint pen.
