Simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece

We were so fortunate to have a lovely weekend here in Chicagoland. Frost in the morning, sunny days in the 50s and a chill in the air at night. We spent most of our time outside, finishing off the dreaded fall clean-up, but I did have a spare moment or two to put together a simple Thanksgiving centerpiece. 

We aren't hosting this year, but since we just finished the construction part of our dining room remodel I thought it only appropriate to dress up our table a bit. 

This time of year, I love to use nature inspired elements as much as possible. Such simple, rustic elegance not to mention texture galore.

My original orchid centerpiece is still kickin' so it was really just a matter of filling out the rest of the table. A neutral linen runner with a hint of gold is layered with a burlap {Yes, mom, more burlap. Your favorite!} garland. Of course, my birch candles had to make an appearance. You know I love them, almost as much as burlap.

Apples, pinecones both natural and golden flecked, leaves and just about anything else fall-ish are tucked in along the garland. It doesn't get much simpler than that!

Now, bring on the turkey! 
Happy Thanksgiving week to all my US readers.
