Up first is my little Thanksgiving Table...
Everything I used I found around the house. Grab your favorite vases, some mason jars, glass bowls - whatever you have and fill it with something pretty.
I had grabbed a bag of cranberries from the grocery store a few days ago, they were on clearance so I thought why not? We have pecans galore in our yard so I gathered up a bunch and used them. Acorns are another great choice, pinecones, twigs, leaves even those annoying sweet gum seeds can be used (check out the pic below). I had some lighted branches that I used but you could totally just use sticks from your yard - it would be equally as pretty.
I didn't have a table cloth that I felt like fit the Thanksgiving feel so I just used a piece of scrap burlap as a little table runner. I grabbed some twine and yarn to wrap the silverware - simple but I liked that I could use a little bit of the deep red to tie it all together.
Candles of course are always an easy solution. A good rule when creating a grouping of items is to always use an odd number of things - its just more pleasing to the eye.
Next up is a bunch of little ideas from other sites that I had to share - they are all last minute, super easy and use what you have...
Seriously, someone has made a sweet gum berry look chic. I can't even get over this but I love it so much.
Use your pretty fall leaves to write on for place setters.
Pinecones, upside down glasses and pumpkins - easy and so pretty.
Another great use of something you have on hand.
I love this idea for a kids table but I think it would be totally cute for an adult table too. PS - you can get brown paper like this at the dollar store - they sell it as mailing wrap in large rolls.
So many cute ideas here right? I just love using what you already have.
Just want to tell all of you how much I'm thankful for you, your encouragement, support and kind words you always give. I love all of my bloggy friends!
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
