Thanksgiving table decor
Can hardly believe Thanksgiving is almost here. This year, summer has gone by so fast. I’m just glad I do love fall and so it happens, I love Thanksgiving. While trying to get inspired for Thanksgiving décor I came across some really beautiful and creative centre pieces and table décor. Here are some of my favourites I found.
Love that rustic candle wrapped in cinnamon. I made a couple similar to the one in the picture. It's very easy. Everybody can do it. http://leiasculinarytreasures.blogspot.ca/2013/10/fall-decor.html
I like the idea of using large pumpkins as food platter holders on a buffet table. Great idea. Not only decorative but functional also.
Candles and more candles. Love them too. They are great to incorporated in your table décor. You just have to be aware not to use any strong scented candles at your dinner table. Use unscented ones so they don’t interfere with the aroma of food.
My inspiration photos were gathered from Top Dreamer, Good Housekeeping, Martha Stewart, and Country Living Magazine.
Following are some of my own Thanksgiving decorating ideas.
This is a simple, quick and easy centre piece. I used a gold metallic finish tray, some leaves a few pumpkins and placed a candle holder with an orange candle stick in the centre.

To add décor to my table I covered the centre of my table cloth with an ornate table runner, added a few random pumpkins, some tea lights, pumpkin name place holders, (my daughter made for each place setting) and napkin rings.

With my daughter’s help we made the napkin rings also. For complete and detailed instructions on how to make them, go to Napkin Rings.
