You’re hosting Thanksgiving this year – Yay, you! As you map out errands and order your organic turkeys from Alfalfa’s Markets (psst, click here to order) remember that the table sets the mood. With the proper decor, your family and friends will sit down to a memorable meal that will combine graceful touches in an elegant, yet appealing presentation.
The mood sets the food
Before you start scouring Pinterest, attempting to do your best Martha Stewart, Alfalfa’s Markets is here to help put your holiday table decorating at ease. Thanksgiving is all about family, food and gratitude. We’ve combined a few simple ideas to help unleash that creative spirit, without breaking the pocketbook:
- Let’s be real. Thanksgiving cooking is full of comforting and wonderful scents that conjure up warmth, but the dining room doesn’t necessarily need to smell like the kitchen too, right? Alfalfa’s Wellness department has gorgeous scented and unscented candles, including aromatherapy oils that are not only healing, but can help make a room become more vibrant and romantic.
- Head to the Alfalfa’s produce aisle and check out our gorgeous selection of pomegranates, citrus and herbs. A beautiful spread of cinnamon, clove, rosemary, sage, and oranges combined with whole walnuts, pumpkins, squash and persimmons can provide a stunning setting. Bonus, you can eat the table setting later!
- Succulents and flowers are always a gorgeous table accessory. Our floral department has a wide variety of seasonal arrangements. We can help you decide between a rustic or a regal bouquet, depending on your theme.
- Incorporate nature and the elements we have in Colorado! Pine cone foraging while on a hike is one way to bring the natural beauty of Boulder into your home.
