Wow, the year has flown by and in just a few days Thanksgiving will be here. We keep hearing about the economy not being as strong as it used to be, so what I thought I would do is suggest some entertaining ideas.
And Thanksgiving table decorations that are low-cost and that you can add to your holiday party ideas portfolio. Let’s start with a centerpiece of colorful Thanksgiving flowers that you can pick up at the market.
Use a color scheme of orange, yellow, red, rust, white and green tones and pick up sunflowers, dahlias, Gerber daisies and hydrangeas that are readily available at the market or flower shop.
One of the entertaining ideas I suggest is to take these Thanksgiving flowers and arrange them in items you already own like glass vases or water pitchers. Other holiday party ideas for Thanksgiving include taking natural elements such as a pumpkin, hallowing out the center and then using the pumpkin as a vase for your Thanksgiving table decorations.
An interesting twist on Thanksgiving table decorations is to take a sunflower or Gerber daisy, cut the majority of the stem off leaving a couple of inches and then use rocks or glass stones to anchor the stem down at the bottom of a low glass vase and fill it with water. Add a floating candle if you wish and there you have a stylish, low-cost arrangement using a selection of Thanksgiving flowers. What I also like about this arrangement is that you can recycle the elements for other occasions as well.
