Fall Craft: Thanksgiving Place Settings
Bring nature to the table this year with these harvest-inspired miniature gardens.
Whenever I am the hostess for the holidays, it is not uncommon for my guests to bring me gifts, bottles of wine, or even an apple pie. But whenever I host, I love giving a little something to my guests to take home too. A great way to do this is with a personalized place setting.
Whenever I am out and about on my daily adventures, I am always looking for deals on vessels that would work nicely for the holiday place settings. I love scouring flea markets, thrift stores and tag sales. At the last flea market I attended, I found these amber glass dessert cups. I bought all 12 for only $20! The amber color would surely pop on my Thanksgiving table. You can get creative with the planting vessels. Try using terra cotta pots, tea cups, flower pots or canning jars. Trying out all the possibilities and combinations is half the fun.
