We are so enjoying the fall weather that we are finally experiencing here in the south!! The leaves are starting to change colors ever so slightly.I am actually wearing a sweater as I write this post. You don't know how happy that make me! It's the little things!!
This month for our Pinterest Challenge, we are sharing ideas for your Thanksgiving table.
Welcome to another installment of our monthly Pinterest Challenges hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy, from County Road 407.
If you are new to the Pinterest Challenge, here are the details!
- each month Cindy selects a photo for inspiration online that we will recreate
- the owner of the photo has graciously given us permission to give our spin on the project
- you will receive numerous ideas that you can replicate in your home to keep things fresh
This month's inspiration comes from Lindsey Brunk. Please visit her site to see all of this gorgeous tablescape!
My takeaway on this was creating a long centerpiece across the table full of greens and berries.
While Lindsey's table uses gorgeous dark colors, I went with lighter….mainly because I wanted to use what I had.
I made these place card holders years ago. They are so simple to make with saved wine corks. Just glue 3 together in a triangle and with a sharp knife, carefully cut a shallow slit in the top to hold the card. I used plain business cards that I had for printing your own. I just used a gold pen to hand write them.
The base of the centerpiece is one long eucalyptus garland from Amazon. You can shape it to meander along the table.
Then go along and add your candlesticks.
Next fill in with faux berries, pumpkins, urns with wine corks and more candlelight.
I've collected various sizes of brass candlesticks through the years. I love to use them in the fall. They are so warm with the colors of the season.
All that I use on my tablescape now in the dining room are faux pumpkins. You don't have to worry about rot or runners being ruined. Believe me….I've learned from that mistake.
Small thrift store urns are perfect for groupings of wine corks.
