Thanksgiving Center Piece

by Julie Nichols, November 22, 2013

Using Blue & Orange 

Hi, friends I was thinking of a way to make a centerpiece without spending money.  I created this one using what I already had.  I used a wreath that I made over the summer, dried hydrangeas from my garden, my wool scarf, and a pumpkin.  

I placed the wreath in the center of the table.  I put a bowl in the middle of the wreath.  This gives the pumpkin some height.  I wrapped my scarf around the pumpkin and placed the hydrangeas around the scarf. I added two pompoms that I made the night before.

I set the table with my blue and white plates to go with the blue I already have in the room and to go with the seat coverings I made.

I also thought of a different way to fold my napkins this year

I folded the napkin in half lengthwise then folded over the right side to form a square.  I folded the corners into the middle and ironed over each napkin to keep the fold in place.  The napkins now look like a small envelope.  On Thanksgiving day I might hide a small trinket on the napkin for a nice surprise for my family. For the photo, I laid a pine cone on top.

Thank You For Stopping By 

Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving

  1. Your table looks lovely...those pheasant glasses are gorgeous! Enjoy your weekend and the week ahead! Sweet hugs!

  2. Very pretty, love how you've incorporated the scarf, really warms it up!

  3. Julie, I agree with Cindy@Dwellings...the scarf does warm it up. Your tablescape looks great and I'm loving that you are using the glasses that you received unused. They were meant to be enjoyed and I'm sure you will take care of them to pass to your daughter. They are perfect for Thanksgiving!
    Hope your family has a great one this year!

  4. I adore blue and orange together. I did my husbands small bathroom in it! Your table is lovely and I was amazed at the pheasant glasses as the tablecloth I always use for Thanksgiving is an old damask gray one with golden pheasants on it! I think I have to search eBay for those!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,
