A Chive Blossom-inspired Thanksgiving Table

I’m always intrigued where a person’s creative inspiration comes from. I know it may sound odd, but my inspiration for decor and design typically comes from food. This Thanksgiving table is no exception.

Here’s what happened: While testing a Charred Purple Cabbage with Parmesan and Chives recipe, there was one chive in the bunch that still had a blossom attached –which was rare as it is well past season for such a herb unicorn. Instead of chopping this particular chive with the rest, I gave it a stay of execution and placed it in a tiny purple bud vase and admired it’s beauty for a week…then came the pumpkins, and the purple paint, and the fresh greens and the custom linen napkins and before I knew it, I had a beautiful holiday table set.

Where does your inspiration come from? I’d love to know.
