Table decor with Graphic 45 Botanicabella

Do you have your Thanksgiving menu planned?  Have to say that my menu never varies from year to year, its the same.  My family would be quite upset if any of their favorite dishes were missing!  Mom helps me make the sausage dressing 'cause hers is better than mine.  Then there's the sweet potato souffle that is soooo divine, yum, it has pecans on top, no marshmallows in this house.  For my SIL and me, we have tons of creamy mashed potatoes, giblet gravy... well you get the picture!

Anyway, I wanted to create something small, but pretty, for my Thanksgiving table and was inspired by nature's vivid fall colors of red and gold.   I am limited as to what I can do because of all the food on the table. I had a quick flash of brilliance and decided to use  Botanicabella papers, jute twine, and burlap to  create rustic napkin rings and place cards.  They will surely add a homespun touch of nature's beauty to my table and still leave room for all that delicious food!

I've recorded a video showing you how I make the napkin rings and placecards.

 The placecards are made from Graphic 45 Artist Trading Tags and the are two sided.  I put names on one side and some fussy cut elements on the other.

The napkin rings are made from toilet paper rolls covered with burlap.  Add some fun twine, a pretty chippy and a flower and you've got a really pretty napkin ring with a rustic touch.

For a finishing touch, I've added touches of Stickles on the flower petals, I think it adds a nice holiday sparkle to my table.
