Here are some of my favorite last minute ideas for decorating and entertaining this autumn season. Whether your hosting the big event on Thanksgiving Day or just having a few friends over during the long holiday weekend these ideas are really easy and add that extra touch that your get-togethers always have!
I have a few season specific decorative pieces that I reuse every year like this gorgeous ceramic pumpkin. You can get one from 1-800 Flowers.com with a beautiful fresh Thanksgiving flower arrangement for yourself or a friend. I filled my pumpkin with flowers, grasses, peppers, and succulents in a farm fresh palette.
Staying with the farm fresh theme, set vintage berry baskets filled with similar floral on each plate and you’ve got a stunning tablescape that looks good enough to eat! Add a bit of personalization by simply slipping a place card in among the flora and fauna!
I find these little berry baskets to be the perfect size to use as multiples as I did on the dining table or to add just the right festive touch on the dessert or buffet table.
Just line the basket with a small dish, bowl, or can. Cut a piece of floral foam to size and thoroughly soak the foam before placing in the dish. The foam will make it very easy to create your piece as it holds each insertion in place and provides hydration to keep your flowers fresh!
