One of my friends wanted some help with ideas on styling the table. I love bringing the outdoors in for the holidays and branches is something I used for an anniversary party too. I love the rustic look but I’m a glamdoll by nature so sparkly, glittery, metallic hues are a must. Gather branches from your yard or the park and spray paint them. Turkey day is all about family and I think those warm feelings we get calls for a warmer color scheme. So opt for browns, golds & bronze colors.
If you still have leaves on the bushes you can spray paint those as well. I like this look. Maybe a visit to the local Dollar Store will yield you some results. They always have a cheesy floral section. Spray paint those and place each stem in tiny vases. You can probably get some vases from Goodwills or thift stores for cheap. Don’t be afraid to use mismatched ones as varying heights adds visual interest. Besides, if you spray painted those, you will end up with a monochromatic look that’s sure to be impressive.
Feathers, dry foilage, branches will make for a nice centerpiece but put this on the food table because something so high will obstruct the view of guest. Nothing worse than not seeing who you’re talking to across the table.
