Host Thanksgiving

DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece // FashionableHostess.com

For entertaining this Thanksgiving I love the concept of bringing natural elements to your Thanksgiving table. My inspiration started with my dried wildflowers and then continued with winter vegetables I found in the supermarket like pumpkins, squash and gourds.

Rather than using my glass table as I usually do as my base {see my other tables here}, I opted for a printed laminated fabric table cloth from Bed Bath and Beyond. A laminated fabric means you can wipe clean!

I layered my Chilewich Pressed Dahlia Placemats over the table cloth for each table setting. I love that these placemats look like woven flowers keeping with my organic feel, not to mention a gold hue is always gorgeous for the holidays.

I love the look of orange-hued cloth napkins; they give that perfect Fall pop. I topped each setting with some extra rosemary I had from cooking – tres chic!

A great DIY money-saving tip for your Thanksgiving centerpiece is to arrange winter vegetables on a bed of pine needles. You can literally find your nearest Pine Tree and snip a few branches or again use leftover herbs like rosemary {see another way I re-used my herbs here}. I arranged my vegetables – pumpkins, squash, and gourds – on top of the pine needles on my Nambe Cheeseboard.
