Thanksgiving Table Au Natural

When you set the Thanksgiving table this year, let Mother Nature help. The inspirations above are from  Sunset and Martha Stewart . Fruit, leaves, herbs and even a Gum Tree Spur can create a very simple and special natural look for each place setting at your table.  Plus think of all the money you’ll save on store bought items!

Here are some tips on how to make the look work:

  • Make sure to select fruit with long stems for tying on place cards.
  • If you’re using items from the great outdoors, wipe them clean before placing them on the plate or table.
  • When using earth tones like those pictured above, go with a white or cream colored plate. It will make the color in your featured item pop.
  • If you’re going to try this look, make sure to keep the plates, napkins, tablecloth or placemat simple. If these are too ornate it will overpower the simple look you are trying to accomplish.

    […] Make your own centerpiece for Thanksgiving instead of buying expensive flowers.  Use what you have around the house, in the kitchen and in your yard like pine cones, candles, pumpkins, gourds, fruit and colorful leaves.   See how to set the table with Mother Nature’s Help: View Table Setting Ideas […]
