5 Fall Features For Your Thanksgiving Table

The leaves are falling, the menu is set, and the WHOLE family is invited.  Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away – did that come up too quickly for you?? The food is going to be great, shouldn’t your table look good, too? The last thing you want to worry about is finding a centerpiece for the table.  We’ve compiled five of our favorite looks this year to make your holiday table setting as easy as, well, pumpkin pie. 

Good Houskeeping knows their stuff – as is evident by this adorable painted pumpkin. Snag a medium-large pumpkin from your local nursery and give it a quick paint job.  Once it’s dry, have guests write what they are thankful for with a sharpie! For a fun twist, use chalk spray paint and have pieces of chalk for them to write. It’s a great way to recycle those Halloween pumpkins, as well as put everyone in the holiday spirit.  

How perfectly festive is this arrangement from wineandglue.com?  We love that she breaks down all the steps in creating this pumpkin vase masterpiece.  This would make an ah-mazing hostess gift, too!  Get your DIY on and head over to Wine and Glue for all the details.

I love the versatility of a great hurricane vase and I’m totally falling in love with the way Amanda Brown at myheartsdesireblog.com has dressed hers up for Thanksgiving!  She layers festive colored kernels and dried beans for a quick, eye-popping centerpiece.  You can experiment with staggered vase heights and shapes to create more drama. Pro tip:  To make your kernels go further, use a small cup to take up the middle space and pour your kernels around it.  

Bring a little of your personality to the table by incorporating your favorite color in your table scape. This has LifeSquire written all over it, and we love it! Head over to digsdigs.com to see more. 

Finally, from thatswhatchesaid.net, is this perfectly sized fall candle centerpiece.  If you plan to serve dinner from the table, you’ll want a piece that can easily be moved.  I love all the natural elements in this piece from the jute twine to the freshly fallen leaves tied in the middle!
