Going Nuts at Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, I plan to go nuts.  Using nuts as my muse, I will use them to make my holiday decorations.  During my November seminar at Smith & Hawkin, in Crabtree Valley Mall, Raleigh, NC, I created these centerpieces for Thanksgiving.

 This arrangement was made with a plastic pot protector filled with water, a one inch floral frog and mums.  Fill with nuts and you’re done.




Here’s the same how-to, but with lady apples.



Here the nuts become a floral frog in a vase of water.

Don’t let your Thanksgiving preparations drive you nuts – go with nuts!
