While the food is the real centerpiece of Thanksgiving I thought that this year’s table deserved some attention as it was all either gathered or edible.
I was out on a walk the day before Thanksgiving and was struck by the color of some of the trees. You see here in Southern California green (or brown, when there is no rain) is the main color year round. We do have a few deciduous trees around and so they stand out in the sea of green. I decided that some of the leaves were worth gathering for the table. I brought them home and washed them in the sink then pressed them in dish towels to dry and flatten. On Thanksgiving morning, my husband and I were out for the morning walk and I decided with his help I could give some of the trees a trim. These branches made for the finishing touch on our Thanksgiving table.
