Good Monday morning friends! I hope you have all had a blessed weekend and I’m sure you’re all gearing up for Thanksgiving this week!! (I cant even believe its here) Today on the blog I wanted to share a very simple yet beautiful table scape that I put together for our latest Misdiy challenge over on Instagram.
If you saw my fall home tour here on the blog then I’m sure you remember seeing these large pumpkin sitting about. Most of the pumpkins in my fall décor are faux pumpkins but I do like to add a few real ones in the mix. There’s just something about a real pumpkin… and although man has done very well with recreating the ‘real’ look, it will never be as good as the real thing. Right? I purchased these pumpkins at a local farmers stand and I just love the colors!! The eucalyptus is also real, I picked it up at Trader Joes.
I have to be honest with you all…this was my very first ‘fancy’ table scape. I’ve done center pieces before but I’ve never used fresh items like these to cover our table. It was so much fun!! I kept this little project very simple, with it being my first go at it and I wanted it to look natural, organic. Not too staged or forced. To achieve this look I simply began building. I placed the large pumpkin in the center and then the two medium sized pumpkins went on both sides. Once I had the 3 large pumpkins in place I began filling the space with small pumpkins and candles. For my candle bases I used some little spools I had purchased at the Country Living Fair a couple years ago but you could use any type of candle sticks or wine glasses turned upside down. This is the fun part, get creative with the pieces you add. After all of the items were in place I then began laying the eucalyptus around the items until I achieved that soft natural look I was going for.
This little project was really much easier than I had anticipated and I had so much fun putting it together. Now all it needs are the place settings and its ready to be enjoyed. I hope if you have some pumpkins still hanging on that this inspires you to set a beautiful view on your dining table to enjoy for Thanksgiving.
