Pumpkin Patch Thanksgiving Tablescape

I can't believe that it will be Thanksgiving weekend in less than 2 weeks!  I know Thanksgiving is early this year but still, the time has flown by.



With that in mind, I've put together a fun pumpkin patch themed tablescape that would work well for a Thanksgiving weekend luncheon.

My inspiration for this tablescape came from these pumpkin soup tureens I've had for many years.

I decided to pair the orange with gray since I wanted to use these gray/white buffalo check napkins and table runner which were a recent purchase on Amazon.

The centerpiece for the table took on the form of a pumpkin patch with faux greenery and pumpkins (both from Dollarama) running the length of the table.

I love this type of centerpiece as you can tuck in anything that fits the theme.  Here, I've placed pumpkins, leaves, berry picks and a string of battery-operated lights.

Four of these glass vases were interspersed among the pumpkin patch greenery.

I filled the bottoms of the vases with orange acrylic pieces.

And the tops of the vases held tealights with greenery pieces and leaves arranged outside of an inner votive holder.
Glass drink coasters were used to cover the center hole.


I like the look of symmetry down the center of the table because everyone seated along the sides gets a similar view.

The place settings consisted of a gray placemat, silver charger, orange dinner plate, gray salad plate topped with the pumpkin soup tureen.

I used little pumpkins for the placecard holders by tying leaf cut-outs on with raffia.

I set them atop little white dishes turned upside down and added a sprig of greenery and leaf to each one.

Sprigs of greenery and berry picks were also arranged around the pumpkin soup tureens.


Whew! Now, I have one tablescape figured out for Thanksgiving weekend...on to the next!

Hope you'll stop by and see what I come up with for my Thanksgiving dinner tablescape.

Kitchen Sideboard Traditional Fall Decor


Have you seen all the new ways to decorate for fall that are currently gracing store shelves? It seems there are faux pumpkins and leaves in every colour imaginable from deep purple to pastel pink just to name a few.  Then there are the more neutral looks in white, cream and gray. 



While I enjoy all of these looks and might even give them a try now and then, I always come back to the traditional colours of fall when I decorate for this vibrant season.

So that is how I've decorated my kitchen sideboard for fall this year.

I began with this corner of the sideboard and incorporated my tiered tray.

I got this Thankful & Blessed sign at HomeSense last week.  With Thanksgiving so early this year (Oct 8th) I decided my tiered tray should reflect that holiday.

This Tom Turkey took centerstage on the top tray.

A combination of orange, brown and green items were arranged on the tray.

Beside it, I placed my leaf bowls in anticipation of perhaps some type of pumpkin dessert.  :)

Orange and brown plaid napkins and gold flatware were also displayed.



An orange berry wreath was placed over the metal/wood wall art piece. 

This is the vignette I created on the other corner of the sideboard.

Again, another Thanksgiving appropriate sign was featured.

I placed it on a wooden pedestal and surrounded it with faux fall florals and leaves.

You'll notice I decided to move the mugs over to this corner and I arranged them on a wooden charger.

A few of these faux sugar-coated pumpkins were tucked into various spaces.

And that's a look at how I've decorated this area of my kitchen.

I may change it up before the season's over but for now, I'm liking the ...

traditional colours of fall in my home decor.

How about you?

Are you an oranges, golds & brown fall decor person...

...or are you changing it up this year?
