A Giving Tree

 

This week, I am sharing a Giving Tree that I created for HGTV Gardens. The Giving Tree can be placed practically anywhere in your home. The tree starts out empty of leaves. Over time, family and visitors can add leaves to the tree by adding messages of thanks and giving to paper leaves and then hanging them on the tree. We are starting a new tradition in our house by adding this tree to our Thanksgiving table. I am looking forward to seeing what my guest, family and children write on the leaves. I’m also going to save the leaves from year to year. It will be a wonderful way to reflect on special memories made around the table.
