We're hosting Thanksgiving this year and I couldn't be more excited. Firstly, because it happens to be my favorite holiday and, secondly, because of my love for a well dressed table. This year, gold tipped leaves inspired a table setting that turned out both earthy and sophisticated. Vintage Russel Wright dishes, a colorful runner, berry filled twigs, wood and brass create a look and a feel that complement our home's mid-century design well. Take a look and find out below how to quickly gild leaves for the upcoming holidays.
Gold Tipped Leaves
Magnolia leaves (they're thick and won't crack as the paint dries), gold paint and twine.
Tie twine to the leaf stem. Dip the tip directly into the paint. Hang and let dry for 1 to 2 days.
Best Wishes for a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
