Etceteras: berries and cream

I’m very behind on fall and Thanksgiving decorating this year. I’m hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow and needed some additional fall d├ęcor to spruce up the eating area.

Blog Winter Berries
I used the above beautiful images from BHG for my inspiration and got to work.

My original plan was to use twigs and some faux floral berries that I had bought. Then I remembered the piles of berries in the backyard that our ficus tree has been dropping. 

I scooped up a jarful and started gluing them to the twigs I collected from our front yard. 

I arranged the faux berry twigs in this milk bottle I recently found at the thrift store. 

The colors of these berries that we usually consider a mess and nuisance are beautiful.

This time of year, fall foliage is everywhere and it’s just a matter of putting the pieces together to make a pretty arrangement.

Dead twigs, fallen berries and a thrift store milk jar have become a pretty berries and cream arrangement.


  1. Great idea to glue the berries. What kind of glue did you use?

  2. Thanks so much! I used hot glue. Just a tiny little drop on each berry.
