To Decorate or Not to Decorate

Hosting the turkey dinner this year? Besides getting all the fixings ready, how do you decorate the table with harvest festivity? Is your centerpiece homemade or do you keep it simple with cloth napkins soft to feel? Or do you fuss with a floral arrangement - is it paper, silk, plastic or the real deal? 

You can make it like the kids’ table with the basics and lots of room. As John Hughes reminds us, It's like being at the kids' table at Thanksgiving - you can put your elbows on it, you don't have to talk politics... no matter how old I get, there's always a part of me that's sitting there.”  My favorite place to sit if you can get clearance!

Today's message, whether you decorate or not - I hope you don’t go flying over the Thanksgiving speed bump and jettison right into December. With the warm temperatures this past weekend, lots of folks put the holiday lights on the trees. Don't illuminate just yet. Let's enjoy Thanksgiving please!

P.S. It’s Monday before the feast so let’s get creative and engaged. Post your favorite decorating tips or if you forgo the decorations, post why you do what you do! I’ve posted two of my top picks from so share yours, too.   

If you like this blog, remember to post and become a friend on our fan page at or follow me on twitter (where there are even more shared tidbits) or subscribe on the blog to receive posts daily via email or a feed. Either way, we hope you follow the postings somewhere in cyberspace and share it with your gardening friends. Questions, comments or thoughts, contact me direct at Happy Gardening. Annie
