Cinnamon brooms aren't for cleaning. Surprisingly they have become my sweeping way of decorating table tops. I bought my first one last year, and as you can see from Version #1 in the photo above, it has lasted beautifully.
So this year, I drew inspiration from these simple little brooms and purchased 3 at Trader Joes. The cinnamon fragrance makes a festive meal even better.
Here are the dramatically different ways I found to use the broom. Create your version and share it with us on Facebook or Pinterest. Have some bewitching fun!
These photos of my kitchen counter version provide a simple template for using the broom as the mechanics i.e. the way to keep the arrangement secure for a long time.
Version #3 - Use any artificial or real flowers. In this case I just used 2 artificial flowers and the broom.
Version #4 - I cut dried hydrangeas (a bit too late) from my yard and stuck them in the base of the broom to hold them in place.
Get the kids involved and have a broom arranging tabletop design party with family and friends. This could be a very fun way to celebrate your Thanksgiving table!
