There are few things I like better than creating something beautiful with items I already have on hand. It’s been a running theme in my holiday table decor.
Last December I used vintage sheet music found the bench of a piano we inherited to make place mats for a festive Christmas dinner tablescape. This past April I brought in spring flowers and our own brown eggs for a pretty, yet simple Easter holiday table. Both tables were decorated in a rustic way that suits our little homestead.
I gravitate toward natural elements for my holiday tables, mixing wood, textiles and metals. A touch of nature, be it fir bows, spring flowers, or seasonal produce, brings the pop of colour and contrast.
Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend and my table is set.
