Inspiration Board: Thanksgiving Garden

My Favorite holiday would only be better if I could eat it outside in a beautiful and cozy setting. I think it wouldn’t be too hard if you planned ahead. Plant graceful grasses, thistle, winterberry and other plants that look beautiful in the fall. Make it festive with golden globes in the trees, and beautiful candles. Arrange firewood for a beautiful but functional backdrop and then start a fire or fire up the heater, while snuggling under a suzani lap blanket. Finally enjoy a straight from the earth feast in garden.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    While a wonderful concept, I doubt that it would ever be something that I would be able to do. I don’t think asking friends and family to dine outdoors in the snow would go over so well. Though possibly decorating the entry, or just outside of the windows with some of these beaautiful decorations would be a great treat.
