DIY Thanksgiving

I absolutely fell in love with this idea when I saw it on the Better Homes & Gardens site. It is a block of floral foam cut into a sphere, and soaked in water. Then it is covered with orange mums with the stems cut really short and stuck into the foam. There is a twig in the top with leaves to make it look even more realistic. Sitting it on top of a cake plate is simply luscious, and perfect for a table setting. Oh, a single mum in an egg cup at each place setting would be sooo cute. I can't wait to try this. I just hope I can find miniature mums. Love it!

It looks like marigolds would work also...that's what those look like - something that was growing in my husband garden all around the perimeter of the vegetable garden!! LOTS of them and mini ones too!!! You could have them if you lived near us! LOL
