Style on Monday - Thanksgiving Centerpiece


I love Thanksgiving week with all the preparation that goes in to it.  All the chopping and dicing and measuring and planning just feeds right into my list maker personality.

First up on my to do list today is the table centerpiece.  I originally had a vision of a formal piece in mind with pretty artichokes hollowed out to use as candle holders and some white pumpkins and tea lights running down the table.

But I decided instead to just gather a few things from around the house and do a more casual centerpiece, one that would leave more room on the table for food.

I went through my Autumn Splendor pinterest board to gather a few ideas.

I love the white tray and natural elements along with the white pillar candles so I think I will focus the arrangement around those.  I also love the metal basket in the last photo but am not sure I can work one in with the size of the tray I am using.

I have seen colorful beans used in clear glass hurricanes so I grabbed what I had from the pantry.  And I love the white rooster for height.

It's always fun seeing what all of this turns into.  I'll show what I come up with tomorrow.  How are your plans coming along?

xo, Patty


  1. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with Patty :>) I usually keep the table d├ęcor pretty simple, some candles and a small arrangement of flowers, I don't have room for much else with all the food!

  2. Love what you are doing so far. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with. Simple is just perfect (more room for the goodies ;-)
    I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. We had ours which was wonderful ~

  3. looking forward to the finished centerpiece, I need some inspiration!

  4. I have the same pedestal glasses as in your photo (far left). I was always told that peanut butter came in them - just assuming that is true?
