I need to step up my Thanksgiving table settings; most years the only decorative thing on there is the fancy gravy boat.


I like this centerpiece: painted mini pumpkins and gourds with berry sprigs. You could use it as a centerpiece, or place just one pumpkin and sprig per setting to create more visual interest.

Need a simple, modern, but pulled together look for your Thanksgiving table? Check out this setting from You Are My Fave:

Spray painting those mini pumpkins and gourds leftover from Halloween, add a few red berry sprigs for a fast and inexpensive Thanksgiving centerpiece. It's almost a runner, right?

twig centerpieces

I can't think of an easier centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table than placing bare branches in clear vases. Love the idea of high-contrast when decorating, and these branches are it. See those hanging tea lights on the twigs? Love.
