Around the House, That Cat of Ours

Our Thanksgiving Table

We’re in full scale planning mode for Thanksgiving over here! Hubberman has purchased the turkey, I’m gathering ingredients for our side dishes, and I’m putting the finishing touches on the Thanksgiving decor around the house.

I thought I would share our Thanksgiving “tablescape” (and the little helper I had as I was arranging things.)

Hurricane Globe Bird Nest

For the past two years, this has been my spring centerpiece in my dining room (I moved it outside for the photo.) 🙂

All I used was my hurricane globe, “sugared” eggs I picked up at Joann Fabrics last year, and a bunch of raffia I had kicking around in my craft drawer. First, swirl the raffia into the bottom of the globe to form the nest. Next, position your eggs, making sure to alternate colors of the eggs so the overall look is balanced. That’s it! Depending on the size of your globe, you can place just a few eggs in your nest, or a whole bunch! You could also use wood eggs, blown, dyed eggs (just be careful while positioning your delicate creations,) or you could use bright plastic eggs for a more playful look.
