Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and if you’re hosting the big holiday meal or even just the regular family gathering I’m sure you have tons of things on your mind. Grocery lists, food prep, and who’s bring this or that is quickly going to be on the top of your mind so we wanted to give you a few quick ideas to dress up that table.

Use your pumpkins If you decorating your Thanksgiving table, chances are you have a few pumpkins around the house. If not or they have all been under the jack-o-lantern knife then they are on after Halloween sale now.

You could grab some flowers at the grocery store cut the top of your pumpkin like a lid and arrange the flowers a bit for a beautiful, simple, elegant centerpiece like this one. You could just use the flowers or if you want to make a bigger impression then have something taller in the middle like this one. 

If that seems intimidating you could do the same even easier with a smaller pumpkin. You might even have some mums and flowers you could cut from plants you have already to put in these smaller ones. 

  For a different approach with pumpkins, you can buy a bag of small ones and make add candles or flowers and make beautiful elegant center pieces like these.

Or do the same with bigger ones,  berry garland, with or without candles, and you have a beautiful elegant dinner centerpiece.
