With so much focus going into food prep for tomorrow, here’s a fabulous last minute holiday decorating tip that I swear by.
If you have bittersweet growing wild in your neighborhood like I do, a couple of long branches go a long way. Just snip a few viney branches to be as long as you can. A handful of smaller multi berried twigs is great for filling in.
For my Thanksgiving table, I place a few pumpkins and gourds in the center of the table and snake a branch through. My multi-armed chandelier gets the same treatment.
If I have any bittersweet leftover, I’ll take my old grapevine wreath that probably still has last year’s tangle on it, and freshen it up with the new. This makes the perfect autumnal welcome for Thanksgiving Day and beyond – at least until I’m ready to switch my holiday gears into evergreens. (Which by the way also looks fabulous entwined with bittersweet!)
Can you tell just how much I love this stuff?
Happy Thanksgiving dear friends!
