Here at the farm I like to bring outdoors inside. Here is a peek at how I decorated our Thanksgiving table.
Obviously there are a lot of pumpkins that are brought in from the garden. This year we grew the famous Fairytale Pumpkin which has a lovely muted orange hue that was screaming to be our Thanksgiving centerpiece. Simply hollowed out the center, washed it with a mix of water and clorox to keep it fresher longer and deter mold from growing, and inserted a plastic chinese food soup container into the pumpkin. Then I added water and a ball of chicken wire to the plastic vase insert and added some lime green hydrangeas from Trader Joe’s and some wild rose hips and ferns collected from our frosted gardens and voila!
I also included some small Baby Boo white pumpkins and dried eucalyptus pods to complete the table. The runner is simply made of burlap sacks I had laying around the potting shed that I cut and ironed. And the place settings are a mix of my favorite flea market find china and mismatched hotel silverware tied in a brown ribbon with a fern sprig to add some earthiness.
As much as the pumpkin centerpiece was the focal point, my favorite detail were these little candlestick wreathes I made of wild rose hips and dried ferns from the yard. They’re were made super easily using green floral wire as a base and to tie it all together. These are so pretty and are drying so well I’m planning to use them on our Christmas table as well!
