Dress Your Table With Cinnamon and Roses

Walking around the tasting tent at the Food Network NYC Food and Wine Festival, I came across a fabulous decorating idea — it's perfect for Fall or the holidays — that I plan to re-create in a tablescape. You can to, here's how to:

  • Start by covering the table with a simple cloth. Arrange a thin layer of gauzy fabric over the tablecloth.
  • Sprinkle the table with rose petals in a color that matches the party's theme. Place the cinnamon sticks around the rose petals.

This is an inspiring idea that can translate into many different table decorations. You could wrap twine around cloth napkins and place a cinnamon stick inside each one. Or make placecard holders by cutting a slit into the side of the cinnamon and sliding a piece of labeled cardstock inside. What do you think? Have you ever used cinnamon sticks as party decor?

i've never used this before or even really thought about it but i like the way that it looks. i think that for myself - i don't care much for roses, but for the season, it seems to be ok. it's not over the top or anything, so it's a pretty tablescape

They look pretty & I love the combination with the rose petals. I'm just not a big fan of cinnamon scent.

Would the cinnamon sticks affect your smell when you're eating?

No way, they cost too much.
