Thanksgiving Favorites | Easy Centerpieces & Accents


My Thanksgiving Collection is all about easy centerpieces and accents for your home. Each season or holiday my favorite thing to do is to add these sort of seasonal touches on side tables, in the powder room, the kitchen counter and our dining table. These little transformations make our house feel welcoming, alive and special.

Fresh flowers are great, but I typically opt for accents that will last for weeks without tiring. All of these ideas will look great now through Thanksgiving - even into Christmas. Even if you are the only one to see them, making the effort reaffirms that your each day and hour is worth enjoying.

Potted Bulbs in Transferware : Paperwhites & Amaryllis
Now is the time to plant paperwhite and amaryllis bulbs so they will be ready to bloom for December. I love to see the green shoots during November and then the blooms will open early December and last until Christmas. Typically the bulbs bloom 4-6 weeks after planting - so you still have time : ) They look fantastic scattered around the house or clustered together. They make a great gift, too. I will share more of a step-by-step of my potting process later.




Planter Box with Candles

A couple of years ago I had an old wooden box that sat on our kitchen table. Each season I found more and more uses for it. I loved the linear shape and how it so easily lend itself to a line of planted bulbs (paperwhites or amaryllis) for the holidays, or daffodils in the spring. I used it filled with herbs in the summer and piled with mini gourds in the fall. It worked great on our old, more rustic table (which was on a porch), but now I found myself looking for a more refined vessel. I searched and searched for the perfect shape and patina (this unlaquered brass will age over time) to duplicate the look in our home this holiday season. I hope you can do the same : )

DIY Candle Holders
It is very hard for me to find candle holders that I love that aren't one of a kind. So I thought, why not create candle holders out of containers? It is very easy - a 10 minute project that will leave you feeling like the ultimate homemaker : ) Of course, the beautiful, colorful candles really make them look fantastic and impossible to mess up! Step-by-Step coming soon.

Wheat Bundles
Of course, the ever popular wheat bundles never go out of style. I love how these look going down the center of a table with hurricane candles in-between, too. So many options... how will we every decide!

  1. I would love if you would do a post on how you hung your creamware platters on the wall. :)
