If you’re participating in Creating Home’s Annual Thanksgiving Centerpiece Challenge, today is the day to share your beautiful centerpieces! I’m so excited! As you see from mine, they can be simple and seasonal with gathered items from home and property. To create my country Thanksgiving centerpiece, I just went into my backyard and clipped some branches from trees and shrubs and assembled them in a vase. I found the dried grass at my neighbor’s house (shhhh, don’t tell) and put it in the center of the centerpiece for some height.
Simple pewter candlesticks frame the centerpiece and will provide mood lighting when it’s time for the big meal. Pewter is one of my favorite metals and is often referred to as “the poor man’s silver” because of its affordability compared to real silver. I love it because of its history and lack of pretension (see my earlier blog posts here and here). I also used pewter for the chargers and silverware. The pumpkin cocottes are old, but Staub makes some great ones. I’ve linked to the sources below in the widget.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
I can’t wait to see your lovely holiday centerpieces!
Have a great day.
