Thanksgiving Decorating On A Budget

Thanksgiving Decorating On A Budget


Thank you for joining us today. My name is Debra and I am Michelle and we
work for Ryan Lawn & Tree. Today we’d like to demonstrate how you can
bring the outdoors into your home this holiday season without breaking the budget. First start by going on a nature walk around
your home. You can find leaves from a tree or on the
ground and use them as center pieces as we have here with the hedge apples or you can
use them as any other tablescape. We also have antlers that we have used from
a hunting trip where we have found them sheds. We have a great little trick for the kids
right before they sit down at their table. Take a pine cone grab your pine cleaners make
them into little feathers and you’ve got a great little thing. You can also use these for a name plate for
each table setting as well. Cut a small piece of paper with a person’s
name and you have your place setting card. We’d also like to show how you can bring the
outdoors in for your serving area as well. We have pheasant feathers stuck in here. Hunting season is a great time to utilize these. You could also use turkey feathers or if you
have branches with brightly colored leaves you could use that to add a pop of color as well. Pine cones along the walking path. Michelle tell us your inspiration with these
tree cookies. The tree cookies here we just have gotten
these from seeing a tree company at a site where we walked up and asked the pruners or
the arborist if they could cut some tree cookies. All it is is a single skinny cut from a log
that has been cut down from the tree. We’ve used it here with the cupcakes
to use as a serving. We put a vase in between there. You could use anything simple a box anything
like that to allow that different separation. We also have our cheese and our crackers on
here as well. Another great idea is to take a simple log
that has been cut. Drill some holes for tea light candles. You can use this as a centerpiece or a table
display as well. Along our nature walk we also found some pussy
willow sticks. You can also add these to a centerpiece with
your leaves you could fill a vase with pinecones and use a grapevine reef around the base of it.
