"Give Thanks" Harvest Table

Welcome dear friends and new readers!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Today's post is a quick, fun tablescape I created this morning. 
 You see the adorable little boxes were a gift I received in the mail 
today from my Lowe's friend Samantha.

They were the perfect touch to my Thanksgiving table!
 I love it when that happens!

I already had purchased the two boxwood topiaries from 
Lowe's last week for $10 each. 
 What a great deal and I can enjoy them for the holidays 
and then plant them in the garden later.

They came in red containers, but I simple covered 
them in tea towels matching my wallpaper.

I folded them longways then again for some interest to the height of my pots. 
Then I secured then with clothes pins, worked like a charm!
 To make sure they do not leak on my table I 
added a plastic baggie around each one as well.

Bigger evergreens will need plenty of water if they are inside. 
 But just water when needed. 
 The good thing is they will not shed needles like some living trees.

I will enjoy this setting for the long weekend.... 
then it's time to get the Christmas stuff out!

(I may or may not have started decorating... I'll never tell!)

  4. Brooke, I love the painted boxes...did you make them yourself ? Your garden is lovely. Had to go take myself the tour since I love gardening myself. Don't know how you have the time to do it all.
