It Is Little Touches-Bronze Pine-cones



I always like to have a little gift for my guests who come to my house for dinner. This Thanksgiving I have taken pinecones from last years Christmas Woodland theme (since I still had a bunch I had added eye hooks to), spray painted them bronze, added some ribbon and will tie them around each person's napkin. Then they can take their pine-cone home with them. Think about the little touches. It does not have to be complicated, expensive or elaborate. Just a little touch to say you care.

Is there anything you are making for Thanksgiving you are excited about? Believe it or not, I am still trying to decide what I am cooking, besides the traditional stuff. Maybe a pumpkin soup with pesto drizzled on-top or browned buttered pear tart or pomegranate/dried fig salad, who knows what will creep into my mind??? xoxo

Your pinecones are lovely and so unusual!


simply beautiful! Mica


What a beautiful idea! Makes me wish I were a hostess this year instead of a guest. Hope you and your family have a very happy Thanksgiving.


Your "non-traditional" dishes sound divine. I want to eat at your house!


What a fun idea Clarice! You'll have to let us know what you end up cooking. I'm the pie person, so I'll be doing pies -- my favorite!


Clarice, this is SO charming!!!!! :) What an excellent idea. :) I'm going to be whipping up a few goodies to take to my parents' house on Thursday. I just recently blogged about figs. Love them! I think your pumpkin soup with pesto sounds divine (I LOVE pesto). :) Have a fun Sunday! xoxo Theresa


What a lovely and thoughtful gesture. Your guests are lucky people.


Dear Clarice,

What a wonderful, simple idea! We're going to spray paint and glitter our pine cones pink :).

We're excited about making a stuffed pumpkin that we read about in Mother Earth News. You fill it with stuffing and baste it with butter, while baking for 2 1/2 hours. It's supposed to be creamy and scrumptious.




lovely idea!

Great idea! The cones would be lovely hanging on the Christmas tree or from a door knob or window after the Thanksgiving celebrations.
