How To Make a Fresh Greenery Table Garland

| | |

As we head into a season of holidays and celebrations, I think it’s important to know how to quickly and easily set a beautiful table without a lot flower arranging or fuss. For me, the perfect way to accomplish that is to make a simple and easy garland of greenery as a table runner.

With just a few bunches of market greens or some foraged branches from the yard, you can create a beautiful table garland in just minutes.

For this garland, I used three types of greenery. 1) A eucalyptus with larger leaves called ‘“silver dollar” 2) A eucalyptus with more delicate leaves called “gunni” and 3) Some purple branches I foraged from our yard. To begin, I laid the stems of eucalyptus along the length of the table, starting at the ends and moving toward the center until the stems meet in the middle.

Once I have the greenery generally in place, I use small pieces of wired twine to tie the stems together along the length of the garland. I don’t go crazy with the twine, just five or six pieces to keep the stems secure and gathered together.
