We wanted to bring a bounty harvest to the table to show the au-natural beauty of what American farmers work so hard to provide for us. It’s also visually stimulating to be able to see the produce used for our Thanksgiving dinner feast as the centerpiece.

Vegetables used were: sweet potatoes, yams, beets, radishes, carrots, parsnips, onions, and garlic. After Thanksgiving is over and done, these veggies would still be able to hold up long enough to be used in meals days and weeks after.

Foraged greenery and berries were used to dress the veggies on the table over our own studio’s hand-dyed table linens. We used Hand-dyed ribbons from Silk and Willow that we had from other projects to tie the gold flatware.

Michelle from Calligraphy Cult penned simply elegant place cards on handmade paper and one lucky yam to put the finishing touch on the simple table decor. The entire design was under $30 and all is completely reusable.
