Week 35 – Decorate for Thanksgiving


In Colorado it just may be nice enough to sit out on the patio and if not it can always be nice to look at it from the window.   You can also bring some of the cool weather plants indoors to decorate for Thanksgiving.

Samaritan House-arrangements we made for Thanksgiving

Centerpieces we made for Samaritan House last year. Pie pumpkins, flowers and ribbons and bows.

Take a pie pumpkin (because they’re smaller) and cut off the top and scoop out the insides.  Place a potted plant inside, add a bow or some other decorations for a fun table centerpiece.  If you still have some cool weather plants outside like kale or pansies you can use them in your centerpiece.


You could make these minus the spiders for Thanksgiving.

I still like the old-fashioned cornucopia that you can place squash, gourds, indian corn, vegetables, and dried grasses with some decorations to make a nice centerpiece.

Outside on the patio you can use the obelisk we made a couple of weeks ago filled with indian corn, squash and gourds.  Pile around some pumpkins and some straw bales if you have them with gourds and squash.

Happy Gardening & Happy Thanksgiving!!
