We’re headed to Dallas next week to spend Thanksgiving with family and I’ll be taking these feather and corn husk place cards with me!
If I’m not making the meal this year, I figured I could at least bring table decor! I had extra corn husks and feathers from my Thanksgiving wreath so I made these little bundles to pair with a place card.
I was going to set up this ‘practice’ Thanksgiving table in my dining room, but the other day my friend Candice mentioned she was having Thanksgiving outdoors. Such a fun idea – I have never even considered an al fresco Thanksgiving meal, but I guess in Texas that is totally doable. If you are lucky enough to live in a warm climate, this table decor would look just as great on a picnic table as a dinner table!
In addition to the glittered feathers and corn husk place cards, I added a glitter touch to a few more natural elements like this cattail centerpiece.
The package of cattails cost $6 from Hobby Lobby and I just painted some of them with a light coat of Martha Stewart glitter paint. It took only a few minutes.
I also used the glitter pain to cover a few leaves to scatter down the table. Since there aren’t really fall leaves here in San Antonio, I used preserved fall leaves from the craft store. I just painted one side.
