My Favorite Ideas for Your Thanksgiving TabletopNovember 18th, 2011
I’m not one for “earthy” decor, but I do love this idea of using Fall leaves on the tabletop with a sheer tablecloth. As Martha instructs:
“Display autumn leaves beneath a sheer tablecloth, and the dining room will look as brilliant as the maple in the front yard. Place leaves between paper towels or waxed paper inside a phone book for a week to dry and smooth them. If needed, use double-sided tape to attach foliage — in any grouping — to a standard white tablecloth. Then place a sheer cloth, such as organza, on top”
You all know that I am a sucker for anything gilded. Spray painting some gourds and pumpkins is the perfect way to blend autumnal charm with a dash of fabulous. And I love how this colorway complements my inspiration in yesterday’s post.
