At our recent Remodelista Dinner, our friend Louesa Roebuck decorated the dining table with cardoon thistles. I loved the furry burrs so much, I took several home with me. This year, instead of making a wreath for the door, I strung several cardoons together and tied a bell to the bottom for an instant festive note.
