Rustic Thanksgiving Centerpiece with Burlap Table Square

Pin It!
044 I am really starting to think about Thanksgiving! Have you realized that it’s less than three weeks away? And since our menu is always the same…a family tradition…it’s the decor that needs my attention. Sooo…I would like to show you the centerpiece for my breakfast room table!

004 It all started with this wonderful shabby box from Joss & Main! I was thrilled when it arrived and I saw that it even had a little touch of yellow…perfect for my frenchy blue and yellow decor!

050 And I also love the vintage look of the little metal pieces on the corners…so rustic!

039 I couldn’t wait to fill it up with things I love…including lots of fun (real) gourds and this faux pumpkin from Walmart. I love that stem, so several of these came home with me! And at $5.00 each, they were a bargain, especially since they will be around next fall, too!

034The star of the vignette, however, is this wonderful Quimper plate…a gift from some sweet friends! If you know me, you know that I love Quimper ware. In fact, you can see some of my collection on the hutch in the background of this post. This plate is very special to me because of the givers and because it is my only piece in the yellow pattern!

051 I have also added this wonderful little lead crystal urn…a bargain for $6.00 at Tuesday Morning! I have filled it with some of my vintage silverplate flatware collected from Goodwill over several years. It has such a lovely patina! And I love the contrast between the rustic box and the more elegant crystal and silver!

016 And on the table…my $3.00 Goodwill faux deer antler! I found the votives (which each came with two candles) at Dollar Tree. These will get a lot of use over the holidays!

image However, my shabby Thanksgiving centerpiece would just not go with my blue and yellow table square, as shown to you by Baby Kitty. It is one of my favorite finds from my trip to Provence several years ago and I love the sunny colors…for spring and summer. But it looks a little out of place during the cooler months, so I have to put it away. However, I do love the idea of a table square…something I saw frequently when I lived in France.

040So I decided to make a simple burlap table square…easy peasy! It’s just two 29 inch square pieces of burlap sewn together and then turned inside out  and top-stitched. I think I will enjoy the change! I especially love the look of a table square on my round table.

044 I am really enjoying the contrast of the different textures! This will be a fun centerpiece for Thanksgiving. And…is it too early? Cover your eyes if you aren’t ready for the C word yet! I am thinking how cute this box will be filled with greenery and shiny red ornaments for…dare I say it?…Christmas!

  23. How's the pumpkin vote going!? I sure hope you win! I really do like yours the best ya know!

    Love the pretty centerpiece... but my table is so narrow by the time I get plates and food on it... there's not much space for anything more... how about doing a "skinny table centerpiece"? Just food for thought... yep.. pun intended!
