Simple fall tabletop ideas

With Thanksgiving just a few days away - here are some easy ideas for centerpieces.

A good base for your designs is some burlap fabric and some rustic wood platforms to add a little interest and height to your centerpiece.

A collection of bud vases in beautiful fall colors are simple to arrange with flowers from the market. Here I took mixed fall bouquets and just separated them creating a very pretty assortment of flowers on display.

Add some mini pumpkins and pine cones from your yard for a natural look.

A tray filled with mini pumpkins (sprayed with a little bronze paint), dried hydrangeas, votives and berries.

Pumpkins on pedestals - surrounded by moss and gilded acorns. 

Dried hydrangeas in a beautiful urn, more of my favorite white pumpkins.

You can also just fill a planter with moss and pumpkins for a quick centerpiece.

Having a buffet? Print your menu on decorative paper so your guests know what the choices are.

Candles in mason jars scattered throughout your buffet tablescape.

Cut some bouquets from your mums outside, place in mason jars tied with burlap.

More creamy white pumpkins with bittersweet.

Love using lifts (cardboard boxes or tins under cloth) for the food platters.

Your guests will love the thought and your efforts!

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
