(That's glare, not crud, on the fork and spoon; I checked.)
Today I was in the grocery store and was choosing flowers, when I noticed a bunch sitting in a jar of cranberries--fresh cranberries.
Then on Pinterest I saw a bunch of flowers resting in a mason jar filled with lemons. I decided to combine the two ideas, keeping the flower purchase to $8 and shopping my house for the other stuff.
I had the glasses already tied with yellow bows from some other occasion. And I had the cranberries and lemons because I'll be using them in recipes.
And I got a harebrained idea to make this tray at 2:30 in the morning. I painted it a year ago but chose tonight, of all nights, to cut out magazine foods and Mod Podge them on. I might or might not actually use this serving tray on Thanksgiving, but at least it's ready.
And finally, I found this idea on Pinterest. The apples are real. So is the paper, and the people whose names are written thereon. Looking forward to having a dozen folks around the table soon.
