>Use Nature to Decorate for Thanksgiving

>Bed of Leaves

One beautiful pumpkin resting on a bed of leaves is simple and organic.

Scale this idea up or down as space allows: a tall pumpkin would look lovely with just a handful of leaves at the base.

Magnolia and Pinecones

Wide bowls (or even trays or platters) can make centerpiece creation simple. Line the bottom with greenery, then fill with large items such as pinecones or ornaments.

Finally, garnish with a different texture. We used magnolia leaves, golden pinecones, matte gold ornaments, and a sprinkling of red berries.

Fall Fruits

A pyramid of fall fruits and miniature squash plated on a birch-log pedestal is a simple but beautiful centerpiece.

Do you have some easy & inexpensive decorating tips? We’d love for you to share them!
