Fall Centerpiece & Thanksgiving Tag Printable

Thanksgiving Centerpiece 12

With fall in the air, I was inspired to create a fall centerpiece using simple decor after coming across the online flower delivery company, BloomNation. Because I had taken a couple of floral arranging classes back in college I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at floral arranging again. I was never good at it, and I’m still no where close to a professional, but it was obviously one of the classes I enjoyed going to most. It was fun, and on few occasions a little stressful trying to come up with something that looked good. I was always so impressed with what my classmates’ arrangements, and how different ours were from each other when given a specific assignment. You can create so many different arrangements, and the best part about flowers is, it will (for the most part) always end up looking beautiful.

One of my favorite flowers are hydrangeas, so when I saw it in the shop I immediately knew I had to use it. I always thought of it as a spring/summer flower, and quickly turned to Pinterest to see if I could use hydrangeas in a fall arrangement. And to my surprise, I found a bunch of beautiful fall ideas using hydrangeas.

I knew I wanted to make my centerpiece pretty neutral in color, but wanted to add a few fall colors to the arrangement without making it look overly colorful. Aside from hydrangeas, I used daisies, mums, carnations, lilies, and added some wheat to give it a little bit more of a fall/Thanksgiving appeal. I added some of the wheat to the napkins, and used a striped burlap ribbon to wrap around the napkins and mason jars. This was such a simple and easy table to put together, and not to mention, great for a small budget!

I’m also sharing these fun Thanksgiving tags that you can incorporate on your table by wrapping it around your napkins and holding it in place with string or raffia, add them to a treat bag, or on a take home box for your guests on Thanksgiving.

If you’re not feeling confident in your flower arranging ability, or don’t have the time to make one yourself, try using a flower delivery to save you time and choose from a variety of options to give your table that fall look you’re going for!

P.S. See where I got my inspiration for this centerpiece on my Pinterest board.

 

Friday Favorites: Pumpkin Decorations

Nothing says fall like pumpkins! And, if you find the perfect pumpkin patch, pumpkins are a great way to decorate your home for the holidays if you’re on a tight budget.

Last year, when we lived in Monterey, there was a family run pumpkin patch called Borchard Farms that sold pumpkins for an unbelievably great price! We took my mother in law with us and she went a little wild and bought a cart full of pumpkins. They had a variety of pumpkins and some pumpkins you don’t see normally.

So, if you’re lucky enough to find an affordable pumpkin patch, or just need a new way of decorating pumpkins, here are a few ideas this fall and Halloween.

This is a day late, but these were too cute not to share and I had been working on it yesterday, I just for some reason forgot to hit “post”…

It already feels like Spring in beautiful California, and I am absolutely loving it! Next year, on the other hand, will be a different story. I know that this time next year in Alaska, we’re going to be begging for Spring, so I’m going to enjoy every minute of this gorgeous weather now, and share some of my favorite Spring Printables.

Printable Menu Planner

kitchen planner display

I’m always trying to figure out what we’re going to eat for dinner throughout the week, and I am constantly asked by my husband what we’re having for dinner every night. So, I finally got around to making our Menu Planner so that I could stay on top of meals throughout the week. Print off your Menu Planner, put it in a frame, and use a dry erase marker to write down your meals each week.

Now, all I need to do now is start planning ahead! I’d love to hear what some of your family’s favorite recipes are!

These also go great with the Printable Recipe Cards I shared with you last week! If you haven’t downloaded yours yet, grab them here.
