Remember our Halloween table? We’re using the same elements for our Thanksgiving decor. Run a similar arrangement down the center of your Turkey Day table or along your mantle for a natural, elegant and understated display.
We started with our faithful workhorses: the burlap strips. Then, inspired by the darling mini pumpkins, we clustered orb-like clear and white bud vases and filled them with Chinese mums. The repetition of almost round, squash-like shapes is what makes this look work. Lydia had the great idea to toss in some cipolline onions I had in the kitchen- it’s a cucurbita and allium table for those taxonomes out there!
Off-white pillar candles stand ready to bring the glow. My Juliska gourd carafe does double duty as an elegant vase, adding height to a side table or mantle.
For a dinner table centerpiece, you want something low enough to see over. So we removed the tall flower arrangement and swapped in a medium-sized white spray-painted pumpkin, adding in a few silver for sparkle.
All we need is food and family!
Burlap- Michael’s or any other craft store
Vases- Jonathan Adler and Heath Ceramics
