Last Minute Thanksgiving Table-scape

Pin It
Turkey day is tomorrow, are you ready?
 I was asked to bring flowers to my Grandparents for our Thanksgiving celebration today.  I thought it would be fun to use my fall pumpkins as the vase.  I stopped by my local Publix and picked up a variety of flowers: lilies, mums, and sunflowers - they had a great deal going on, 3 bundles for $12.

This time I used much smaller pumpkins, but the directions are essentially the same.
I wanted the flowers to sit low so that you can see the person on the other side of the table.  I drilled 8 smaller holes around the larger middle hole - this allowed me to stick in single flowers and hide the edge of the pumpkin.   

Make sure you arrange your flowers from all sides. 
 Set the table with a contemporary table runner and add candles for ambiance.
And there you go, a fall inspired table-scape!
Enjoy the holiday with your family!
Who is waking up early for Black Friday sales?
I'll be sleeping in on Friday and taking it easy.  I might even get out the Christmas decorations ;)
