A Fruit & Flowers Table Centerpiece

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 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.

  1. Very pretty. Ill have to save this idea for next year. I also put a lot of effort into decorating my Thanksgiving table, and was already thinking about going minimalist next year.
