Decorating with Corn for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, skip the turkey decorations and consider using dried corn husks and kernels as decor. The dried husks are a beautiful gold color in their natural state, or can be dyed in a rich hue. Pretty purples and rich golds accent one another for a look that is warm and inviting.
