Decorating for Thanksgiving

Taressa George

The Thanksgiving holiday has crept up on us again! And everyone is coming to our house for dinner. The menu is actually organized and down on paper. All that remains is the actual cooking and the perfect centerpiece for our bountiful Thanksgiving table. For instant fall flavor, I'll pull out my driftwood candelabra, scour the back yard for any usable foliage, berries, etc. I check the leftover Halloween items for any gourds, pumpkins, etc., that I may be able to spray paint and use in the centerpiece. With those items gathered, I make a run to the local crafts store to grab some candles and interesting filler items I can tuck into the empty spaces. Since pillar candles can be expensive, I decide to go with only 4 candles and put some of the small pumpkins on the pillar holders.

Watch this short video that shows us putting together this easy-to-make "updated cornucopia" centerpiece. It's so easy to turn this 7-candle candelabra made of reclaimed driftwood into an elegant centerpiece using a combination of natural and store-bought elements. It will be the highlight of the holiday table.

And it works for every holiday. Right after Thanksgiving, I'll take this apart and turn it into a centerpiece or mantelpiece for Christmas.

Mango Wood Salad Servers

Taressa George

Nkuku specializes in eco-friendly and fair trade products. After traveling and working in Africa and India, Nkuku was formed with the objective of promoting and developing the traditional skills of local artisans, then bringing their work to the global market, while promoting fair trade and establishing a source of income for local artisans. Nkuku combines contemporary designs with age-old techniques, natural materials and sustainable methods of production to ensure each product is truly exceptional. Mango wood is a sustainable wood. Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit but once the trees reach a certain size and age, they stop bearing fruit. It is then that the trees can be cut down and used to create wood products. The removal of the old trees makes space for farmers to plant new mango trees. None of the wood is wasted and the sale of the wood offers supplementary income to mango farmers.

These attractive, over-sized salad servers show the smooth, natural grain of the hardcarved mango wood. The Long Handle servers make a stylish accompaniment to the Sarisha Salad Bowl. Mango wood is a sustainable wood that comes in many shades from light to dark. Long Handle servers are 18"l. Smaller servers are 12"l.

Argyle Wine Rack

Aluminum is a lightweight, heat-resistant and malleable metal with a beautiful silver-tone luminous texture that can be recycled multiple times without loss of its metallic qualities. Aluminum cans are easily recycled and turned into beautiful, useful household and decorative items. According to the Aluminum Can Council, recycling of just one aluminum can can save enough energy to run a television set or a computer for nearly three hours!

Sleek, modern accent. Interlocking diamonds of polished recycled aluminum form a contemporary wine rack that holds seven wine bottles. Accented with brass. Assembly required.

Sea Stone Bottle Stopper

Taressa George

Sea stones are made by the sea, gently rounded through years of rolling in the ocean. They are carefully collected from rivers and beaches all over New England. The owners of Sea Stones have a deep respect for nature and our planet. For every smooth stone they collect, a rough quarry stone is "planted" for the water to tumble into smoothness. They also replant 10 times the number of trees harvested in the creation of the Solo bases and their other wooden products.

Each of these SeaStone bottle stoppers is a unique piece of pure ecology that is in harmony with wine's organic character. Shaped by ocean waves into soft, ergonomic forms, a sea stone makes the perfect handle and allows the bottle to be easily opened and reliably closed. The metal body and solid rubber plug seal perfectly. An elegant accent on any table. Each comes with a hardwood base for storage.

Sea Stone napkin rings are a simple and stylish complement to any table setting. The innate beauty of Mother Nature shines through in the clean design and draws the eye and hand toward the organic aesthetic of the stone.
