Good Morning Everyone!

I’m Gina from Kleinworth & Co. You may have seen me here before when I guest co-hosted with Taryn, Jaime & Lucy for The Inspiration Gallery a couple weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled to be guest posting here today in Taryn’s beautiful space.

Now that we are at the end of the second week in September I am in a full fall mindset. This means filling my home with rich warm colors, baking with lots of cinnamon in every recipe & corn husks. I love to decorate this time of year with corn husks. I decided today I would share with you these Corn Husk Fall Table Settings I made. I had made these little name cards & I wanted something to attach them to. I originally thought about a votive or something like that- but I kept coming back to ideas that laid flat on the plate instead. That’s when I decided on making these mini-sprays out of corn husks.

 

Corn Husk Fall Tablesetting

 

These are really so simple yet add just the right amount of rustic warmth for your table this time of year.

 To Make:

-Take 3-4 husks & soak them in a bowl of water for several minutes to soften.

- Pull out of the water & shake & pat off excess water with a paper towel.

- Lay the husk one on top of the other in a stack- alternating the wide ends with the narrow ends.

- Take your twine & wrap around the center & tie.

-On each end, start pulling 2-3 inch tears into the wide ends of each husk to give a frayed look.

-Pull & fan out each end to give fullness.

-Repeat for each one you want to make.

-Allow to dry flat. Ends will curl & twist on their own as they dry.

(Note- I put mine in the warm garage to speed up the process)

So that’s it. I told you it was easy & oh so festive!!

Thank you so much Taryn for sharing your space with me today. It’s been a pleasure!
