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
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.
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.
