EASY CENTERPIECE MAKING HOW TO + A GOOD TIME
Creating a holiday day table that's practical, easy-to-make, and pretty is honestly a signature around here. Right? So, when Pottery Barn asked me to collaborate on an end-of-fall party I wanted to be honest. You don't have to splurge on cut florals! In this case I chose to use house plants (real and faux) because they add instant color and texture to your Thanksgiving table. Plus, botanicals bring in a beautiful natural element that pulls the colors of Autumn indoors.
Whitewood Events style is something to be admired so I invited Whitney and Kim Brannigan Photography along to help me cohesively bring it all together. You know we had a signature drink to make it easier. If you'd like the recipe, here it is!
Head over to Pottery Barn's blog to check out my Thanksgiving 101: Wood Platter Centerpiece With Whitewood Events. A quick take on it is below. What are your thoughts? Do you put real or fake plants on your table? Let me know in the comments below.
Until next time,
- Wood Container: we chose the Vintage Wood Oval Platter
- Ferns: Two live ferns in small pots – here we used Rabbit Foot Fern, but any will do.
- One Faux Plant: We choose the Maidenhair Fern but faux succulents would work as well.
Step 1: Take real plants out of plastic containers. Place on wood platter.
Step 2: Place faux plant in the middle of the two real ones.
Step 4: Place on table. Viola!
