How to Create a DIY Thanksgiving Wreath for Your Front Door

In this tutorial I’ll explain everything you need to know to create a front door wreath for the Thanksgiving holiday using fall colored flowers, grapevine, hot glue and your choice of ribbon (optional). For this tutorial I’ve chosen to use peonies, but you can choose to use any flower of your liking, including hydrangeas (always popular), dahlias, or even magnolia flowers.

Saturday Sparks: Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Yes, I know Thanksgiving is weeks away but judging by how quickly Halloween sneaked right up on me I thought we could all use a bit of inspiration to help us change gears and get on our turkey day entertaining hats. My husband and I are hosting his side of the family this year, so I need to get all things headed toward Thanksgiving, including food, decorations and organization. (I’ll think about Christmas the day after that.)
I’m starting with the centerpiece of Thanksgiving, the table, and have found several beautiful and some whimsical ideas to jump start the planning of the timeless tradition of breaking bread (and turkey, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and such) with family and friends. I love the more simple ideas for sanity’s sake, but I also adore the elaborate layered images of pumpkins, pies, plates and platters. I just can’t decide on a favorite. What about you?
