Thanksgiving Table

We are a day away from Thanksgiving and thought The Hidden Garden would give you a few tips on how to add those extra touches to your dining table decor.

* consider wrapping a brown or rust toned ribbon around a rolled napkin
* use raffia or another natural twine rather than ribbon if you are going for a more rustic look

Place Cards
* place a small pumpkin at each guest setting. Place a small slit into the top of the pumpkin and put the name card into the slit
* cut a slit on each side of the name card and slip a ribbon through the slits. Tie the ribbon around the napkin with the escort card at the top

* incorporate colored votives on the table (ambers, reds, greens)
* wrap fall leaves around your votives
* cut out the center of a mini pumpkin or mini artichoke and place a votive candle in the center

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
