I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, we certainly did. Both my kids were home from college so this empty nester was thrilled!  I decided to go very natural with my tablescape, using burlap, grapevine, wood, twine, acorns, flowers and dry beans.
I had these wonderful wood rounds cut at a local firewood market, the man was so nice to help me find the size I needed and he changed me nothing! How wonderful was that! On the two smaller wood rounds I placed a glass hurrican on each, added dry beans for easy wax cleanup, and some burlap ribbon on the candle that I attached with old metal thumbtacks.

  I used a burlap runner down the center of the table, I bought 5 yards of burlap at Joannes a few weeks ago when they had that 60 or 65% off coupon. SCORE!
On the larger wood round I placed a smaller round and a  fun grapevine wreath and in the middle added a pumpkin. Than I went to my yard and cut berries and steps from plants and added some cut flowers.

 Small Dollar tree glass candleholders became small vases for mums and roses. I wrapped each with burlap ribbon, added twine to secure it and tied on acorn caps hubby and I picked up on one of our daytrips to a local small town.
For my place settings I used a grapevine wreath as the base, than a charger, my dinner plate and than my leaf plate. I kept the napkins white and simple as well as the tablecloth. Check out my 18 pound bird, it was yummy!
I set up the breakfast room table as my buffet table, food, more burlap and lots of  pumpkins and gourds.  Everything was great, but the best part was having my family together around the table, good conversation and fun games afterward! I hope you all had a very blessed holiday!
