Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving

Contributor post by Jessica of CrochetNature

Thankfulness is on all of our minds this week, but there is so much to be thankful for all year long, including the beauty of nature. Today, I want to share just a couple of ways you can bring natural beauty to your table with some tips on how to make your Thanksgiving eco-friendly!

DECOR

acorns

Why not decorate your table with nature’s delights? You might be able to find acorns like these in your backyard, but if not, you can find them in Cyndi’s shop By Light Of Moon. They would look lovely spread across the table….

FOOD

Thanksgiving food can be even more delicious if it be organic and as natural as possible. Have you ever tried to make pumpkin pulp from scratch? It’s actually not that hard (my daughter did it with her Kindergarten class) and makes your pie sooo delicious! Here’s how:

Cut a pumpkin in half.
Scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff.
Lie face down on a recycled foil lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350•F until soft, about 45 min to 1 hour.
Cool, scoop out the flesh.
Use immediately or freeze for future use.

Above all, enjoy the days spent with family, friends, and beauty!

Happy Thanksgiving!
