Place cards for the holiday table😋
This is a fun project that my family actually loves to work on without complaining. It is part of setting our table for our family before sitting down to give thanks for all the wonderful goodness around us.
This year we are setting a smaller table, but the work is still there, and we need place cards to be clear who is sitting where. Yes for the three of us !! Our fun project started with gathering our supplies. We get creative and try to be colorful, interesting, and unique.
Please watch my video for more photos on how to make fun, natural, beautiful place cards with your family👍 Have a wonderful, safe holiday season💕
Fresh Herb plants as gifts
Herbs have a wonderful fragrant, and add so much flavor to any food. I have used herb plants as center pieces for many years, and this year offered them as gifts to our thanksgiving guests.
Rosemary and thyme plants are two of my favorites, and have a beautiful flowing shape. To cover the pots first wrap them with colorful gift wraps, and add ribbons and ornaments for more color and shine.
Herbs are also great hostess gifts.

Using an accent furniture to create excitement
It might not have a practical use, but the piece stands out because it complements a room’s decor, and gets your attention by creating excitement and not blending into the background.
What is considered an accent piece:
A chair with color and fabric that presents your style, lamps, large paintings, mirrors, chests, planters, multi size wall decors, baskets, ottomans, and trunks.
Small accent pieces add interest to your room. Choose pillows, bookends, vases and candles.
Small accent pieces can add color and texture to any room:
Not just a platter
These platters by Gorky Pottery are so beautiful, that we used them to cover an entire wall.
