Last Minute Thanksgiving Tablescape

Well it's officially the busiest day of the year, or is it the most heavily traveled? Hmmm.  Either way if you are hosting Thanksgiving this year it is time to decide on your tablescape (if you haven't already).  It's officially last minute, so it may be helpful to hear that I came up with this table using all leftover decor from Halloween and my early Autumn harvest veggies purchases.  I picked up some fabric leaves from the drugstore to give some extra color to the entire table.  I created the name tags with some card stock that I already had on hand. The name tags are set inside the stem of the pumpkin by cutting a small slit into the stem with a sharp knife.  The plates for each setting are assorted designs to make the look a bit more festive.  The final touch was the centerpiece, which is an old vintage bowl filled with colorful squash and acorns.  I think this table scape is definitely eclectic but it works.  It's time to be creative and mix and mingle your leftover decor.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!
