How to create a simple Fall Centerpiece that will easily transition through Thanksgiving.
As much as I do enjoy decorating seasonally and for the holidays, I also strive to make my decor work as long and as hard as possible. I’m not really keen on getting my house ready for fall, only to have to turn around and get it ready for Thanksgiving. What I do in the middle of September needs to work up until I take it down and decorate for Christmas.
When it came time to put together a long-lasting fall centerpiece for my dining room table, I fell back to the ‘neutral and natural’ feel that I was channeling in the rest of our home. I picked up some more cotton branches and white gourds and was able to use some branches, dried hydrangea, and feathers that were already up in my attic.
This loose and free-flowing fall centerpiece came together easily…here’s the step by step process I used.
So I put this together last week before I headed out of town for girl’s weekend. When I came home yesterday, this is what I saw when I walked through the dining room.
In my absence, Peep the kitten had gone through and removed every single feather in the arrangement and scattered them across the floor. I will put them back in and I’m tempted to set up a video camera to watch her process of removing them!
