The ‘grow’ plates that I did for my June sale ended up being quite popular.
So when I found a little stack of vintage plates with pine boughs on them, I thought perhaps I could come up with an autumn version.
And rather than using them in an outdoor planter, I thought they would be fun to incorporate into table centerpieces. I gave you a little sneak peek at one when I posted my dining table makeover last week.
I made some that say “give thanks” and some that just say “eat.”
Not that anyone really needs a reminder to ‘eat’ at holiday gatherings.
But a reminder to give thanks isn’t a bad idea.
It’s easy to whip up a lovely table arrangement just using things from around your garden (or maybe your neighbor’s garden, with permission of course).
I used some crab apples from nnK’s tree, some hydrangeas and some spent bee balm blossoms.
If you’d rather, you can also just place the wordy plates in your hutch.
Just remember, don’t eat your words! They are for display purposes only.
I have a few plates left and need some more suggestions for appropriate fall words to use on them. Any ideas?
