I was looking at the Pottery Barn catalog for fall and one of the pictures of a Thanksgiving table inspired me. I have tried to find the inspiration picture but even on their website I can't find it. So I pretty much made the table as I visioned it in my mind. The one thing that I remember about it was that it had antlers on the table. My hubby helped me out on this part because he loves to hunt and I knew I could find a good supply of antlers.
I also was putting away my Halloween decorations and came across a couple of boxes of feathers that I had purchased at the end of the season last year. It just seemed like these feathers say, "Thanksgiving" so I put them in a white pitcher that I had.
I used a burlap runner and added some white pumpkins,( they used to be orange, but I spray painted them white and speckled them with a brown paint. I also painted the stem silver.)
I went up to the barn and found the perfect antlers and had hubby saw off the ends so they were nice and smooth. I then scrubbed them with a bleach cleaner and other than that they are just the natural thing.
I think he was excited that I had a use for his stash.
Added more pumpkins to my shelves.
and more white pumpkins to the window ledge.
A fall garland to the mantel. I then added the white lights because I just love the look of sparkly lights.
I used a fall wreath around the base of the centerpiece, and added some acorns around the base.
The feathers are not real, so I guess if you had real ones you could use those.
What do you think of the antlers on the table?
It is so easy to lose Thanksgiving between Halloween and Christmas but I am glad that I decided to keep fall around for a few more weeks. I loved how it turned out and the PB inspiration.
