I am finding that I love to do things crafty, but taking the pictures and posting them on my blog has become a challenge. I probably wouldn't have taken pictures on Thanksgiving because I was so crazy busy, except, while talking on the phone to my Mom about how I decorated the table, she reminded me to take pictures and put them on my blog. Thanks Mom!
Sadly my camera batteries were dead, so these are from my phone.
As I was preparing the turkey for going into the oven, and watching PBS Thanksgiving shows. I was reminded that I'd not given thought to a centerpiece for the table. Since all of my dishes are white and so is the tablecloth, it really needed one. The show that I was watching was Katie Brown Workshop. She does all kinds of fun and easy things with not so cheap ingredients and supplies. Her centerpiece was made of a foam wreath form and some feather boas, with a candle in the center. Beautiful! But EXPENSIVE! I was looking to do something cheap! No, I was looking to do something free. Since we are fortunate enough to have a ton of trees in our dinky yard, I decided to go there.
Not pictures is the pillar candles on brown candlesticks that I added later. Dinner was at 1pm, so the candles were more for ambiance than light.
