Simple Table Settings Inspired by Nature

Boost your spirits this holiday season with some simple table decorations inspired by nature.

Save trimmings from your fresh cut Christmas tree, purchase greens from the garden center or gather a few from your landscape. Cut the stems to size before placing a few in a vase of water. Add some berry laden crabapple or holly branches for additional color. Include bare twigs for added interest and form in your arrangements.

Set a few greens beside each place setting or on top of a folded napkin set upon each plate. Add a bit of fragrance by using sprigs of Rosemary or lavender instead. 

Use a container of pinecones or acorns for your centerpiece. Add some oranges, pomegranates or other colorful fruit to your table settings.

Even as many of us are planning smaller celebrations, setting a nature-inspired table can make any meal special.

A bit more information: Make a small wreath from grapevine trimmings or other pliable stems.  Dress them up with a sprig of greenery and use as a napkin or place card.
