Sharing a beautiful & easy DIY Thanksgiving table with a gorgeous maple leaf centerpiece, a plaid tablecloth, white dishes & homemade pumpkins on a budget with pictures.
A good friend reminded me the other day just how special Thanksgiving is.
In our culture today it is one of the only holidays that gifts are not exchanged and the only holiday we celebrate being thankful.
Jason and I are incredibly thankful for all of you.
Thank you so much for supporting us not only in the chronicling of the crazy DIY projects through the many years but for being present in supporting the process with us.
In the many ups and downs we have had.
We are truly thankful for all of you!

Beautiful & Easy DIY Thanksgiving Table

This year we celebrate Thanksgiving with my family which happens very rarely.
Thanksgiving Table with Red Maple Leaves as the Centerpiece
I added a gorgeous red maple branch to a clear vase as the star of the show for this year’s Thanksgiving table centerpiece.
And the best part is that was entirely free from our yard!
Maple Leaves as Name Place Cards
I used a few extra leaves to make name place cards at each Thanksgiving table setting.
I wrote the names with a chalk marker.
We are going to write down what we are thankful for on a leaf with a chalk marker and leave in a bowl to be read during the meal.
Plaid Throw as a Thanksgiving Tablecloth
I decided not to hide our farmhouse table & instead added a plaid blanket throw from Ikea as our Thanksgiving Table cloth/ runner this year.
Simple White Thanksgiving Table Settings
White china, white cloth napkins, clear glassware, green napkin rings, leaf name tags written with chalk markers kept the table settings simple.
Homemade Velvet Pumpkins as Thanksgiving Table Decorations
To make our farmhouse table a little more personal and unique I added a few velvet pumpkins as well as a store bought mercury glass pumpkins as decorations to our dining room harvest table.
See how easy it is to create DIY velvet pumpkins at your home for less than $2 each HERE.
Candles & a Fall Wreath as Thanksgiving Fireplace Decor
I added a fall magnolia wreath wreath along with a bunch of candles to decorate our dining room fireplace with.
The candles add an element of warmth & welcome to our fall dining room.
I hope this shows you how simple & easy it is to set a beautiful Thanksgiving table on a budget & inspires you to create a similar one at your home.
