My Fall Tablescape

With Canadian Thanksgiving less than 3 weeks away, 
I’ve got Thanksgiving dinner and decorating on the brain!
We’re actually going away for the holiday, but I am going to have a little celebration of our own before then.  So I scoured my fall decorations, and bought a few gourds and pumpkins from the grocery store, then put together a fall tablescape.
– – – –
– – – –
This is very different from what I put together last year
but I like this one.  A lot.

– – – –
It looks a little jumbled (less so in person – this was hard to capture properly on camera)
but this time of year is bountiful, 
and I think the centrepiece kind of reflects that.  
– – – –
The Centrepiece is Made Up Of:
Apples
Mini-Pumpkins
Mini-Gourds
Leaves
Wheat
Dried Corn Cobs
A Cinnamon Stick Wrapped Candle
Lavender & Twine Wrapped Candles
Crows
I also used a long wooden bowl to hold the pumpkins and such, 
and placed it on a strip of Burlap.
– – – –
Whew.  That’s a lot.
Go big or go home I guess, lol!
– – – –
– – – –
And for a little fun and whimsy I added the crows. 
Actually I’ve noticed that there are quite a few more crows around this year, 
so they are perfect for this centrepiece!

– – – –
As long as none of my guests are afraid of birds we’re good!
I’ll just warn everyone not to look ’em in their beady little eyes.  😉

– – – –
For the actual table settings, I kept things very simple.

– – – –
I just topped off some rustic plates with 
mini-white pumpkins and leaves.

– – – –
The place settings really needed to be simple 
with the elaborate centrepiece in the background.

– – – –
I love how it all came together!

– – – –
One of my favourite parts of the centrepiece is the cinnamon stick wrapped candle I made.

– – – –I had seen these on Martha Stewart, and pinned them to my Pinterest boards 
so I could make them some day.  That some day was today!  🙂
They’re so easy to make, and they smell so good!

– – – –
So all in all, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!
It’s different and full of fun things to look at.
If anything, it’ll be a great conversation piece!

Also, if you are interested, you can find my Fall Tablescape from last year here.  In that post I’ve also included my Thanksgiving Menu, and a fun hollowed out pumpkin filled with flowers!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a really great day!

    The cinnamon stick-wrapped candle is really super!!! This is a very bountiful table, and I like that you used burlap for a more rustic flavor to it. Very nice!
