DIY Thanksgiving

It’s November, so naturally there’s one holiday that’s on everyone’s minds: Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a very important holiday for me. I like to take this day to spend time with my family, design a lavish dinner, reflect on the year that’s passed, and give out holiday presents to my loved ones (around Christmas season, I'm usually traveling, designing wedding celebrations around the world). We’ll talk more about my holiday celebration later, but for today, I just wanted to let you know that throughout this whole month, I’ll be posting one new DIY project per week for a design element for your holiday table.

The picture from above is from my own holiday table last year. We took silk leaves (but you can use real ones from your backyard) and glued them on to a glass vase, layering the leaves to add dimension and texture. Then we took raffia and wrapped it around the vase as a simple finishing touch. Add some flowers and you’re ready.

Here's a close-up shot of the grape centerpiece from the table. 

What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving decorations? Do you have any family traditions you do every year?

Stay tuned for later this week when we post our first Thanksgiving How-To...


  1. To decorate a Thanksgiving tabletop, I like using chic flowers such as Orchids and lush Hydrangea and throw in some little pumpkins into the mixture. To celebrate with our family, we have Thanksgiving LUNCH each year so we have more hours in the day to spend with eachother. We usually end up having 'dinner' before the night ends too! :)

  2. Excelentes diseños Sr. Preston
