The arrival of fall gets me pondering and searching for touches to make Thanksgiving special. When a guest in someone else's home, I like to bring a thoughtful hostess gift. And, on the lucky years my family gets to host, I enjoy building something fun into our holiday tablescape.
Seven weeks away, it's time to start planting seeds.
This year the Paper Acorn will come to my rescue. Heather, who has an eye for spotting unique items in keeping with the spirit of Highlowaha (and whose birthday is TODAY!), invited Etsy, artist Jessica Wolf, to send us a sampling of her work. Though Jessica creates all kinds of custom packaging for weddings, parties, and gifts, she generously sent us a sampling of the four acorn boxes pictured above.
I LOVE THEM.
I especially love them filled with simply decorated acorn cookies and some fall colored shred.
For Thanksgiving I will commission Jessica to make me a collection of acorn boxes using colors such as gold, terra cotta, olive green, and other earthy tones. They will be perfect atop each place setting of china and filled with small treats.

Or, check out what I did last year. More amateur than Jessica's, but festive nonetheless.
Want to win the four boxes pictured above? Here's how...
"Bearing a tiny seed that will produce a mighty oak, the acorn reminds us that great results can be born of humble beginnings." Tell me about one of your great results, born from humble beginnings.
Signing off until tomorrow...
