Here it is – Thanksgiving already, and I still haven’t created a tablescape for Fall.. So today was a perfect day to do something. The weather was pretty crisp so I decided to decorate these gourds I got from a neighbor. He generously gave me 6.. which I was truly happy and thankful for. As I reflect on this holiday, I realize there is so much to be thankful for. Even something so simple as getting these gourds for free. I created this simple tablescape with items that were found around the house and cost zero dollars. What a blessing it was to be able to do that. These are the gourds I started with:
After I washed and dried them I used leftover spray paint I had from previous projects to give them color. Then it was time to get creative. I had a mirror put inside a frame a few months back and decided to use that as my platform. I found a bag of popourri I purchased from a yard sale back in summer for $0.50 cents. This is the tablescape I created for fall.
I still think it needed something else, so I went outside and plucked a few of these dried berry leaves to add to the arrangement. This is the finished look for my Fall tablescape.
Like I said…. I have much to be thankful for.. Being able to have a home to create this lovely centerpiece for.. Is truly a blessing.. Amen…..
I really like the table centerpiece glow by candlelight…… Simply Fall …
Have a wonderfully blessed and safe Thanksgiving
