Here are some last minute ideas for your Thanksgiving table-all pretty easy to accomplish.Have fun with pumpkins,cranberries,corn -fill containers with them or sprinkle them on the table….magnolia leaves and bittersweet can add a lot too…I also love my collection of pilgrims,turkeys-get them all out every year….fun to start with kids!

Lots of Ways To Give Thanks

Bittersweet, pumpkins, feathers, sunflowers,grasses, leaves-so much of what you can use is right in your backyard-have fun and be creative! (All of these were made by friends,family and me)

Thanksgiving Planning

Sadly I am JUST starting to think about how to decorate my table for Thanksgiving this year. I looked back to pictures I took last year for some inspiration…I love putting the flowers in a clear vase loaded with cranberries (they don’t get mushy for a week)…all receive a chocolate turkey…..sprinkling corn (just buy popcorn) and Lindt chocolates wrapped in gold make a pretty filler…

Giving Thanks

Thank you so much to those of you who sent me pictures of arrangements you did after reading my blogs-I really appreciate it! Please keep sending-I will save for next year. Have a great weekend-on to Christmas ideas next…..

Last Minute Thanks!

For anyone trying to come up with some last minute ideas for your table maybe some of these will help. Keep centerpieces low so people can talk to each other-I get that complaint every year and so now am remembering it.(so even though the first picture is beautiful-how would people even see each other??!)
