We are pleased to introduce our new white polar bear family, The Klondikes.
This collection is available in a small, medium, or large sizes. The large bear has a snowflake cut out with a light.
Instead of using a bowl or container, create a Thanksgiving centerpiece spread. We absolutely love this table design by Kim Krejca. (view her original post here.)
Using Williams-Sonoma Great American Turkey dish towels as inspiration and a starting point, Kim used items she had around the house to create this lovely spread. She incorporated artichokes, pears, dried gourds, pomegranates, artificial white pumpkins and autumn leaves, but the possibilities are really endless!!
Another way to enjoy the rustic simplicity of a raw, cleaned gourd is to craft it into a gourd luminary centerpiece. Just be sure to use an LED tealight in your dried gourds and not a real candle.
These examples by Martha Stewart are a great starting point for inspiration! The best thing is, once you create your luminaries they will last for years to come.
November 1st means it’s time to start planning your Thanksgiving dinner and family get togethers. Let Meadowbrooke Gourds take care of beautifying your table with gourds!
