The Blank Canvas

Okay - Here it is. I need to transform these bones into a fabulous Thanksgiving fantasy! Please help me!This is the tree that is to the left of the gazebo.

this is a huge tree that will be trimmed up so it is more easily used as a sitting area.
This is the view from the drive. This is also the back side of the barn.

So there you have it! I will post some photos later of what I have to use and what I am thinking of buying to complete this project. Thank you so much in advance for any suggestions and advice!

Okay, I have ideas (always): twinkle lights draped across the top in all directions to make a canopy of stars. Urns piled with tall twigs/grasses and pumpkins at every corner post (see my blog for an example), a big harvest table with candleabras, a linen runner, gorgeous plates and fall leaves tied to the back of every chair wtih raffia. So there! ~A :-)

Julie, angela has the right idea, but I myself would be doing it with Christmas--as that's my favorite time of year. Can't wait to see what you do with a fantastic blank canvas.

It would look pretty with drop cloth curtains...see the oct. 4th post on this blog: http://heatherbullard.typepad.com
and I 100% agree with everything Angela said!

I was going to tell you about Heather's drop cloths, but Cindy was faster than me!

ok, Cindy and Mrs Jones beat me to it! I had the link all ready to go! This would be the perfect setting for those drop cloth curtains! You even had the right idea with your title..."blank canvas". Please let us know how it comes together! (like the twinkle lights idea too!

Hi Julie...First off..Thank you for your commnts on my blog! I am so glad you found me..."cause now i found you! I am going to add you to my enJOYable blogs!! Second ...what a fun project! Here's a couple of ideas..
1. Buy some of the linen painters drop cloths to use as curtains around the perimeter of your gazebo and use galvanized pipe for the curtain rods. There's a start...if I think of more stuff I'll let you know! Smiles...Joy....
