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.

Set Your Table For Thanksgiving

I feel like Thanksgiving has approached so quickly this year…wasn’t it just summer?  I am hosting Thanksgiving again at my house, so I have been thinking a lot about my menu and how I’m going to set the table (my favorite part for sure!).

I put together a little post using items that are readily available to purchase before next week, in case you are hosting as well and want some last-minute tips and inspiration!

A Holiday Table

I was going through photos on my camera and realized that even though I wrote several posts about preparing a table for Thanksgiving Day I never actually shared the final results (if you follow me on Instagram you did get a peek).  So, I thought I would share today!

holidaytable4I purchased this white tablecloth off Amazon and the black wrapping paper runner from Target…everything else I already owned.  holidaytable1

I cut some boxwood from my own yard to make a garland down the center, and then I created a centerpiece using pine from trees nearby and some alstroemeria from the grocery store…it’s one of my favorites because they last for weeks!holidaytable5

I had the best time with my nieces and my daughter putting the table together.  holidaytable3

The flowers ended up being too tall, so we put them to the side for the actual meal.holidaytable2Come back in a few days to see what my plans and our family traditions are for Christmas Eve!
