A Gourd-geous Sunday

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 used some of the small pine cones from the popourri to outline the candle base  

    Twine left over was used around the neck of this gourd.

The gold paint on this one has a gentle glow…     

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
