Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite holidays to decorate a table for. I love a decorated dinner table, I don’t know what it is but they are just so delightful to look at. Whether it is the colors, the glow or knowing it is going to hold quality time with family and friends, I look forward to dressing up the table every year.
A few weeks back my husband and I took a walk through the park and the trees were right in the middle of shedding their leaves. They were beautifully scattered across the ground and I couldn’t help but start collecting them. I thought how beautiful they would be on top of a dinner plate and how inexpensive they would be to make. Any way I can create a beautiful seasonal table on a dime, I am in!
The possibilities for these leaves seemed endless and I chose to turn the leaves into painted places cards, or I guess place leaves. I also created “I am thankful for” cards. In addition to looking beautiful, it gives guests a fun way to share what they are thankful for.
