I know Thanksgiving is over, but I thought I would do a quick post about my table centerpiece, because I had a lot of fun putting it together and I love the way it turned out!
A few weeks ago I spotted this faux wood box Thanksgiving centerpiece from Erin at Earnest Home Company, and knew instantly I had to try her tutorial for myself!
The box was easy to make! I ended up getting my wood at home depot and having it cut there. My box ended up being 36″ x 8″ the perfect size so there was still room on the table for the dinnerware.
I was too busy hosting family to remember to grab my real camera, so these iPhone photos will have to do!
I started by filling the box with fruits and veggies from the grocery store. And I added carnations in bunches in the box too. Then I filled in any gaps with leaves and pinecones from our yard.
I can’t wait to use it again, but filled with greens and candles for a Christmas dinner.
And, my favorite part is having lots of flowers to spread around the house after it was over. However, if you don’t have time to DIY a centerpiece, BloomNation is a great spot to find local florists in your area.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the start of some favorite Rooms of the Week for December and some special Christmas themed posts!
