More Thanksgiving Inspiration

I had such fun creating my own Thanksgiving centerpiece over the weekend that when my brother {who is hosting his wife's family for the holiday} asked for a couple of suggestions for his centerpiece I was happy to set up a pinterest board for him. 

What I had intended to be just a couple of fruit/flower images, quickly turned into several hours surfing the internet for inspiration. Like this beautiful free form, sprawling low arrangement.

There's just so much out there. I couldn't help, but turn this simple favor into a blog post. I mean, just look at this hollowed out pumpkin stuffed full of roses, greenery, and pinecones. 

So, if you're still looking for a bit of inspiration for your Thanksgiving table, look no further. 
Try placing simple branches and some of falls bounty on the table for a stunning centerpiece.

Here's another take on the pumpkin planter. Try a grouping of several gourds stuffed with mums. It'd be hard to get much more seasonal than that.


Seriously, if you can't find inspiration here, I don't know what to tell you. Now, get out there and make that table pretty!

A Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is just around the corner - time to get the table set and the menu planned.

Have you started your prep yet?

This year I am going with a rustic, casual elegant theme. 

Casual elegance is a term often used to describe clothing but it's also a feel that I want my home to embrace as well. 

Come on in a take a look around and let me know if I've accomplished my desired casually elegant feel.

I've mixed my everyday with my finer items to achieve this look:
white linen placemats layered with burlap; fine china salad plates paired with everyday dinner plates; crystal stemware alongside rustic green rimmed water glasses.
You get the idea!

If you follow me on Facebook you know that I had my first sewing lesson last week - these burlap placemats are the results (more about them in a later post)!

Remember my DIY sparkly place card holders from last year? They've made a reappearance and this year are coupled with a faux fall leaf.

The centerpiece started off with a neutral colored platter which has been piled high with rustic fall decor and paired with crystal candlesticks.

Rattan pumpkin, sparkly golden pears, wheat, pinecones and fall faux leaves.

I'm loving the look this year and hope you are too!

Happy early Thanksgiving to all!
