Traditional is good. Stale is not. We’ve gathered together a few ideas we love for the holiday table, Thanksgiving especially. Instead of pumpkin, think pomegranate. Instead of faux fall leaves, try all American cotton stems. From DIY to ‘just go buy,’ these six ideas will add a natural touch you can make as modern or throw back as you wish..
Real Cotton Sprigs
There’s something magical and winter-appropriate about these cotton sprigs. Cotton on the stem still feels wildly American and traditional enough to tuck at each placesetting along with the good silver.
Okay, you’ve got to source your own log in this case, but we love this look, also from Terrain. We can imagine these candle-holding stakes wedged into birch too!
DIY Leaf Lanterns
Flora Forager shared this DIY with us last year and we’re still swooning. Turn a nature walk into a craft session – quite possibly the perfect pre-dinner activity for kids.
