Thanksgiving Countdown: Day 6: Table Centerpieces

By | Decorating, Holidays, Home page - Slider, Thanksgiving | 4 Comments

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.

Thanksgiving Countdown: Day 3: Decorating with Printable Banner

By | Decorating, Holidays, Home page - Slider, Thanksgiving | No Comments

Well here we are on Day 3 of our Thanksgiving Countdown. We have planned our menu and gathered our supplies, which are necessary things to do to get ready for Thanksgiving, so today we are taking a little break to do some decorating.

While I don’t typically decorate for Thanksgiving Day, I do love to have our home cozy and inviting! I decided to leave the Fall Mantel the way it is, mostly because I simply love it. But the Hoosier Cabinet needed a little pick-me-up, so I scoured the house for items to use and got to work decorating and creating the Printable Thanksgiving Banner for you!

Isn’t the “Give Thanks” Banner really cute? I have a FREE Printable for you, but first, let me show you how I decorated the Hoosier Cabinet.

On top, the Chalkboard that I had on the Front Porch {head on over there for the details on how we made it} got a little face lift with a few things I’m VERY thankful for. Then a wooden box filled with pumpkins, gourds, pinecones and a tall candle. A small cornucopia filled with apples and clementines, and a handful of Indian corn finished out the top.

Then on the shelves, a clear glass vase filled with a candle surrounded with fresh cranberries, and a terra cotta pot dressed like a Pilgrim, leftover from the table centerpiece from last year, with a pumpkin. A ceramic Turkey and a wooden pumpkin finish off the shelves.

Now…let’s chat about this cute little Thanksgiving Banner! So I wanted to have a “Give Thanks” Banner, and looked around on Pinterest and did a quick search, but came up empty. Then I remembered the Fall Cupcake Toppers that Charlotte designed last year and thought they would work perfectly.

So I tried my hand at a little design work. It took me a little time, but I’m happy with the results! And guess what? I made them into a printable for you!

And the other really fun thing…they can also be used for cupcake toppers, either leave them square or punch them out with a circle hole punch. Here’s what you need to do for the Printable “Give Thanks” Thanksgiving Banner

  3. It will open in a PDF, save to your computer
  4. Print at home or save to a flashdrive and print them out at Staples or other office supply store
