Thanksgiving Countdown: Day 6: Table Centerpieces

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

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.
