The Della Robbia dishes and the dryer hose pumpkins are a Thanksgiving thing. Both are in a cabinet the rest of the year, but noThanksgiving table at our house would be complete without them. The trick is finding something new to do with the same pieces year after year.
Looking through my stash of cloths and table runners, I came upon this wonderful handwoven fabric from Morocco. Add an antique candle mold dotted with gourds, and there it is a new look for the pumpkins which stand out beautifully on the cloth.
What to do with napkins to add a touch of fun? I got the idea of using a toilet paper roll for a napkin ring here. Luckily, I had a fabric sample book that had some just right colors that could be used to cover the cardboard and for that something extra, all I had to do was go outside and pick up acorns from the millions that are covering the ground. With a little hot glue…..done!
Wherever you are, whatever your tradition, I hope you have a most wonderful day.
