Easy Last Minute Thanksgiving Tablescape (And a New Table)12:54:00 AM
Hi Friends! It's been busy around here! I recently went back to work full-time, and have spent the past few weeks adjusting to being a working woman! I have so many fun updates to share with you in the coming weeks of our home so I hope you'll check back! Today, however, I wanted to share with you a last minute Thanksgiving/Fall tablescape. I used many of the items you saw glimpses of in my fall home tour, but this time a little more formal. If I'm being honest, I very rarely set the table . . . in fact, the main reason I wanted to share this post is because we just recently purchased a new, larger dining table . . . one that better suits our family of 6 and I needed a reason to dress it up.
For the centerpiece, I found this pumpkin floral arrangement at the thrifstore for $4.99.
It was quite horrid . . . well it was probably nice at one time. I had to dissect it and make it a bit more my style. I kept to a simpler color scheme and added some picks from the Dollar Tree and some sticks from the backyard . . .
Ahhhh . . .Much Better!
I had a few sunflowers leftover, so I plucked them off their sticks and placed them in the center of the salad plates with cute little tags found at Target's Dollar spot.
I alternated between the sunflowers and some simple pine cones for the plates.
I found these really cute beaded cloth napkins on clearance at Homegoods and I just love the little bit of texture and rustic-ness the wooden beads add to the setting.
For a tiny bit of glam, I flanked the pumpkin centerpiece with two pierced black and gold candle holders.
|To try a more neutral looking centerpiece, I used a vase full of dried branches, which I also liked|
Next I just filled it all in with a variety of small pumpkins that I had on hand. All kinds: real, fake, metallic, dull, you name it, I filled them in. I also added some pine cones small and large, and some wooden leaves from the Dollar spot as well.
