Last Minute Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces: My Attempt!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I sent out an enewsletter yesterday and didn't want my blog readers to miss out...
especially if your Thanksgiving table is still empty!

Dear Genevieve from HGTV did use these brussel sprout trees
as part of a centerpiece on one of her shows, but we are planning to eat them!

Ashley really got a kick out of these!

Back to business...

Here are a few quick ideas to add some festivity to your table:

Candles to the Rescue!

Most of you have an abundance of clear floral vases
in the kitchen cabinets. Grab some white candles,
pick up some bulk nuts and arrange the
collection on greenery from the yard.

Use your extra white pumpkins from Halloween to
showcase your table. Add spray painted gourds and
more candles for an elegant, fall look.

Self explanatory! Indian Corn, a large hurricane
with a candle and raffia! Simple, yet stunning!

Head to the yard for colorful leaves. Use floral picks
to arrange them in foam and add, yet again,
more candles, fruit, nuts and berries.

Since I don't didn't have a plan for my table yet:), I thought
I'd save the centerpiece I may did attempt for last.
Brown paper and cutout letters display the reason
why we gather together on this special day.

Okay, I did attempt the above... here's "my quickie version" before the table is set!

I had everything except the sticky letters...
not my best work, but I was aiming for a
"Last Minute Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece!"

Enjoy your day and take in the warmth of the
important people around you.

I am certainly blessed...

Missing you M, D, T and T,
