Enhancing autumns’ holiday tables

To make the holiday tables fun and beautiful this autumn, you can add neutral-colored rocks, sand, or dry foods to a glass container. Colored corn husks are incredible fall decorations for your Thanksgiving table as well. Creating a relaxed and festive atmosphere at your dinner party by using hay bales instead of chairs for sitting and food instead of plastic decorations is a beautiful idea.
