Decorating Your Table with Seasonal Foods

A beautiful table using what is at the grocery store is a solution to all of those family dinners coming up. When I saw it, my imagination went crazy.


I love pumpkins and have used them for years now along with gourds, pine cones even dried leaves it is always pretty. Never did I think to hollow out the little pumpkins to put votive candles, tooth picks, name cards anything you can think of. If you use the pumpkin for baking, it can be dried out and serve food in it: function, beauty, and no clean up.

I thought of artichokes. If you clean them and separate (pull leaves back enough), they hold the little votive candles. They look so cute while you enjoy eating the artichoke hearts in the dish as usual. Dividing the avocado? Same thing, why not put the dip inside the shell instead of a separate dish?

Peppers are so colorful, they would brighten any table. Either buy extra or use part of the food itself to make a holiday or special dinner very original. Most of it is just not throwing away inedible before using it to enhance the table.


Candlelight makes everything look special. Votives cost cents if you look around (especially before, or right after Halloween). How special any table can look with a little thought before throwing out the trash?

I truly agree. I like to use the pumpkin to make homemade pies, and then carve the outer shell and use it to decorate my porch with in my apartment complex. Great idea!
