Greenly: Bring Your Thanksgiving Table to Life

Written by .

A walk through your own backyard is all it takes to set the stage for a colorful Thanksgiving scene.

Your heritage turkey doesn’t have to be the only centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table. This year, you’ll have everything you need to create a natural, seasonal inspired table setting after a wander though your very own backyard!

Never fear. Making your own centerpiece doesn’t have to be complicated! All you have to do is bring the outdoors in. Keep things casual by swapping out flowers for foraged leaves and branches. Add texture by incorporating a few pomegranates or apples. Then finish your look off with heavy linen napkins and a few candles for warmth and viola - you’ll be ready for dinner!

It doesn’t get easier than this! A single spring of rosemary can dress up any plate.

When it doubt – keep things simple. Stick to one color for whimsical statement arrangement.

Local farmers’ markets are filled with fruits and vegetables that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Create an organic table runner by layering lots of colors and textures.
