Happy Thanksgiving! We have a lot to be thankful for this year and much of it goes out to all of you. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday surrounded by friends, family, and good food!
If you're one of the lucky ones hosting Thanksgiving 2011, you might still be wondering how to decorate your tabletop. Not everyone's a florist, but you can be one this Thursday! Here are a few tips to consider while setting your table:
- Think groups - whether it's candles, vases, flowers, etc... place them in groups instead of scattered about the table. For example, instead of placing one votive candle by itself, group four of them together for a more vibrant impact.
- Think monofloral - while visiting your local grocery store, pickup a few bunches of flowers and place each type in their own vase. It really showcases the beauty of the flower instead of detracting when mixed with others.
- Think monochromatic - decide on your favorite color and stick with it. Monochromatic doesn't have to mean one color. It means staying within a color palette. For example, if you select the color orange this year, consider bringing in shades of peach, tangerine, rust, and terracotta.
Here are a few pictures to help illustrate my suggestions. I would love to see some of your creations after the holidays. Feel free to post them on our facebook page.
