Years ago I bought a rectangular shaped basket to use for holiday table decorating.
Actually I got one for the kitchen table and one for the dining room table.
They have been used over and over because it is an inexpensive way to have a very
attractive table arrangement. Usually I use Nadina cuttings with some of their
red berries and just stick them in the basket. It is quick, easy and very attractive.
Be careful with berries if you have young children since some of the berries are
poisonous. Another idea is to use small pots of pansies and put them in the
basket or any other small potting plant that is in season and later you can put
them in your yard. Just a note - deer eat pansies so don't put them where deer
can get to them. I use these baskets all year for any holiday or special meal.
Hope you holiday plans are headed in a smooth direction.

What a great and simple idea! Thanks for the warning about the deer and pansies. I may need to tell James that deer like to eat pansies. He would probably want to plant them around he and Mom's house *smile*.

I hope your mother is better. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
