Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I spent Thanksgiving Eve over at Grace’s house enjoying time with beautiful little JJ and catching up with my sisters.

While we were hanging out, Grace and I decided to throw together a centerpiece using this pin from Thoughtfully Simple as our inspiration:

It looked cute and simple so we took a look at what Grace had on hand. We quickly realized that we didn’t have enough corn husks to go around the candle (and we weren’t about to go to the store on Thanksgiving Eve). Here’s a look at the supplies we had, with a quick cameo of my awesome animal print top (we were in Jersey after all!):

Basically, we had a bunch of pine cones, leaves, and some fake corn. We had two smaller glass round containers and one larger glass square one. So we made due with what we had.

First we lined each container with leaves around the outside. Then stuck a candle in the middle and filled it in with pines cones. The corn wouldn’t fit inside the round containers but we were able to put one in each corner of the square dish. Then to complete the look we tied some raffia around the outside.

It took all of five minutes and I think they look cute!

Here’s how they turned out:

I realize that they look NOTHING like the original pin but the inspiration was there. Maybe next year we'll be more prepared. But knowing us, probably not!

Grace and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Check back later this week to hear my disastrous story about the double chocolate pumpkin cake!
