It is a beautiful reality.
I wanted to extend this imagery to our table, the literal "gathering place" of the season. And so I opened up my cupboards...and I gathered. I gathered plates and wine glasses, yarn and paper. I made these simple napkin rings, inspired by the beauty of nature, and then used the twine throughout the various elements.
Then I wrapped the same yarn and twine around the edge of the placemats, which are actually just cardboard mailing envelopes! The color of the placemats can either coordinate or contrast with the color of the wineglasses:
I used 12x12 scrapbook paper to add another dimension to the placemats:
And used my favorite...cranberries...as the finishing touch.
I love that this setting was created using things I already had. Because, as Thanksgiving reminds us, what we already have is PLENTY.
There is much to be grateful for.
Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling!
I hope you feel right at home :)
