Thanksgiving Countdown: Day 6: Table Centerpieces

Woohoo it’s Day 6! We are almost have way there, getting ready for Thanksgiving! Have you enjoyed the Thanksgiving Countdown so far? I sure hope it has helped you! Today we are chatting about Table Centerpieces. One of my favorite things to do is scour the house and yard and build a Centerpiece.

Whether it’s large or small, the Centerpiece often sets the tone for the rest of your party. I have been wanting to create a Centerpiece in my Antique Galvanized Chicken Feeder for awhile now, I know it seems kind of strange, but I think it’s pretty cool.

This Rustic Table Centerpiece went together in just a few minutes. Here’s what I used…

Rustic Table Centerpiece Supplies

  • Antique Galvanized Chicken Feeder – you can use a number of containers, think outside the box
  • Mini Pumpkins – both real and fake
  • Gourds
  • Candles – remember my little trick to saving money on candles, buy the same size and then set a couple on a dish to add height
  • Silk leaves
  • Pine Cones

Start with the largest items first, this time I added the candles first, then filled in with the other items.

I set this up on our Buffet, with a plaid, wool blanket under the Centerpiece. But it’s low enough I could also use it in the middle of the table. A good guideline to use when you are creating a Centerpiece is to be sure you can see over it easily, you want your guests to be able to talk and see each other.
