{thanksgiving table setting // DIY centerpiece}

img_3524

Hi friends!  If you follow me on instagram, then you know my heart is 100% Christmas.  Butttt, I am hosting my family for Thanksgiving.  What do you think they’ll say when they see I have a mixture of Christmas garland + wreaths + pumpkins?  Ha!  Most likely nothing.  Nothing at all.  They know how batshit crazy I am by now 🙂

BIG thank you to everyone for voting on my instagram poll this morning.  This setting won.  Although, it was really close.

I threw together this pumpkin centerpiece over the weekend.  The things I do for a table setting.  It will definitely be rotten by Thanksgiving.  But, I was dying to do a little DIY.  Whenever I’m creating with my hands, I’m the most happy.  Whether that means cooking.  Rearranging.  Planting.  Organizing.  It makes me really frickin happy.

I found these Hearth & Hand Stoneware mini pedestals at Target and knew I’d find a way to incorporate them some how.  Tealights are in Spice jars – World Market.

Found them for cheap.  6 for $6.  Pop the top off and you’re good to go.  I love the shape.  The eucalyptus clipping was the finishing touch.

I love adding a clipping to the back of these target chairs too!  The burlap ribbon, I leave it there year round.

These plates have seen more food.  Ha!  They are my everyday dishes.  Super affordable, I’m talking $20 and come in a set of 12.  They make a great gift for the hostess with the most too!   Along with the gold flatware (it’s 20% off).  Although we don’t use it daily, I don’t hesitate to pull it out.  Dishwasher safe and they come out like new!

I really wanted to keep this table simple.  Mainly because, I’m ready to set it for Christmas…lol.  I’ve got too many ideas.  It’s killing me to wait.

Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY //

I’m 100% going to have to carve + make a whole new centerpiece for my own Thanksgiving.  But, anything for the gram + my peeps.  Ha!  I took one for the team and finished this DIY over the weekend so I could share it in advance for you guys!

Remember to tag me or text me if you make on.  Makes my fucking day!!!  For reals!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pumpkin (any shape, color or size)
  • Grocery store flowers (I grabbed 2 of the $3.99 Trader Joe’s arrangements)
  • Knife
  • Plastic cup
  • Scotch tape

Here’s what you’ll do:

Trace the rim of the cup onto the pumpkin + carve it out.  These Cinderella pumpkins do take a little elbow grease.

Make a grid with scotch tape over the mouth of the plastic cup.  It doesn’t have to be pretty, you wont see it.

Place the cup into the cavity of the pumpkin.  You may have to scoop out some of the pumpkin guts (that’s what we call them)

Then fill 1/2 full with water.

Separate all the flowers + greenery from the bouquets.

I always start with greenery.   Then pop the flowers in.  Move them around about 25,000 times then call it good.

Here’s the final product.  Took me about 10 minutes from start to finish.

Try it out.  Set a pretty table.  Make a pretty centerpiece.  Shoot, take the centerpiece as a hostess gift if you’re not hosting yourself.  I think it would be a perfect gift!

Next up – the kid table.  I try not to make the kids sit separately, but we can’t all fit.  Someday, I dream of having the longest table.  One that can seat 20 peeps.  Someday ♥
