A Moss + Mushroom Centerpiece
With Thanksgiving just two weeks away, we're prepping our table for bountiful harvest celebrations. This year, two of our favorite décor pieces are taking center stage on the table, alongside fresh botanicals, glowing candles, and whimsical mushrooms. The charming centerpiece above recently sprouted at our Styer's location; we checked in with Display Coordinator Suzie A. to learn how it was made.
Suzie says, "For this centerpiece, I focused on an item that can be a staple for any holiday decorator-- the Candle Centerpiece Trough. It has just the right depth for planting, plus a trio of built-in taper holders for lighting the table. My design was inspired by "Pot et Fleur" arrangements, which mix planted components with fresh cuts and other embellishments. I started by situating the trough in a brass tray filled with fresh moss, resting on some low plant stands. In the trough, I included some fresh cut nine bark leaves and rosehips, sprigs of Calocephalus, and our decorative mushrooms. Finally, I added in some of our tall taper candles, and a Pressed Metal Leaf Garland."
Suzie's Thanksgiving décor also extends above the table, thanks to our new Garden Chandelier Hook. She tells us, "The wreath over the table is another great addition to the harvest look. I paired the hook with one of our grapevine wreaths, which can easily be updated with new accents as we move into the holiday season. Around the wreath, I added fresh leaves and rosehips from our garden to coordinate with the centerpiece, and layered in a matching wreath of metal leaves for added depth and interest."
