Company coming? Welcome them with warming displays to celebrate the season.
THANKSGIVING BUFFET DISPLAY: Decorate the buffet as if it were the fireplace mantle, the center of hearth and home. Twinkle lights, threaded among an autumn leaf garland, add warmth like a wood fire. The garland also hides cording and creates a base and unifying element. Use different heights. The autumn pedestal arrangement is the focal point, but it is balanced by candle sticks at different heights. One candle is elevated on a depression glass cake stand. The look is finished with a lavish rust & gold wired ribbon bow.

TABLE TOP HEDGEROW: The appropriate place to perch a colorful ceramic turkey is nestled in a vine hedgerow. Natural botanicals promote the idea of a tuft of meadow where a turkey might hide. Our bird is sitting in a small grapevine wreath. Another small wreath anchors the ripe yellow pears perched on top of another depression glass cake stand. Roaming vines thread themselves in and among the elements, punctuated by more pears and silk leaves & berries. Fresh red rose hips are the crowning touch, contrasting well with the yellow pears and “growing” out of the vines surrounding the turkey. This arrangement is also low enough that conversation is not inhibited at the dinner table. Add tea lights at the corners of the display and light during dinner. The fresh pears, vines and rose hips were harvested from our own country garden.
