My Thanksgiving table

Halloween is so fun to decorate for, but if you decorate for Halloween then you can't leave those decorations up until Thanksgiving. I have usually just decorated for fall and just left everything up until Thanksgiving was over but his year I went all out for Halloween! I sometimes feel bad for the overlook of Thanksgiving because there is just a few weeks before you then put up your Christmas decor. I love the fall and all of the colors associated with it and so I will share with you my Thanksgiving table.
Above the table is my Dining room light and I decided to hang acorns and leaves from it. It was hard to get a good picture of how it looks but I just used some clear thread and tied it to the acorns and leaves and hung them from the light.


I have these two metal pumpkins and decided to do a pumpkin inside of a pumpkin and then decorated with berries, acorns, pumpkins and gourds.


I used the two lanterns I had on my piano and thought they looked great on the sides.




I used a french country print tablecloth which made it stand out more than just the dark table.

I painted some more pumpkins white and speckled them with dark brown and dark red paint. I painted the stems silver. I really like the white pumpkin look!


I added a garland and lights to the mantle.


These are actually two garlands intertwined, I really like the sparkly leaves on the one.


Another view of my light.



Don't overlook this thankful holiday and hope all of you have a very great day full of gratitude!

Your home is gorgeous! Love your holiday table! My family lives 12 hours away so I do very little decorating so I live vicariously through other people's holiday decor. :)

I joined your blog hop. Hope that was ok. :)
