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.

Let’s 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.  It’s 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 doesn’t 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.

Easter Tablescape Using Garden Pottery



 2106-Easter-Tablescape-F

What a beautiful way to decorate a table for Easter Supper!
 
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most stunning!  Here is an easy way to decorate your table for Easter using a few simple garden pots!

The centerpiece and focal point of the table is a large garden urn.  Buy an ivy plant at your local garden center or nursery or better yet go to a craft store and get a piece of silk ivy.  Fill the bottom of the urn or garden pot with floral foam.  Take a wire coat hanger and bend it into a circle sticking the ends into the foam.  Place the ivy in the base of the pot and wrap it around the coat hanger.

Next take a reed birds nest and place it on the top of the pot of course filled with a few candy eggs. Shown with a decorative bird on the top but you can use anything you want.   Next take small urns and fill with shredded paper and top with a green apple. The apples will pick up the color of the plates.  The hand painted stone name place cards, ribbons on glasses and brown burlap napkins are all the icing on the cake.  

This project is not that difficult or expensive.  Just break the photo down into the pieces you want to copy and create your own outstanding Easter Centerpiece using Garden Urns or Pottery.
