Thanksgiving Cornucopia Centerpiece ~ Giving Thanks

Dining Room
A cornucopia is a traditional Thanksgiving centerpiece and I put together a very simple one this year.

Cornucopia
I set a cornucopia basket on the table and wrapped a fall leaf garland all around. Then I placed a small pumpkin inside.

Cornucopia
I scattered three gourds and lots of pinecones around.

Along with a few acorns.

Pilgrims
The figurines are yardsale finds from many years ago. If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby, very similar ones are 50% off right now.

Indians

Cornucopia
All ready for Thanksgiving. Thank you for taking a look!

I love the centerpiece. I saw these baskets at Michaels, also. I'm thinking of doing a centerpiece even though we're eating on a card table right now. At the Memphis house, I still have my summer one on the table, better change that next week.

That is such a beautiful centerpiece!! I have wax figures for Thanksgiving too, hope I can find them since we didn't use them last year. They are vintage and more "kiddie" looking, but yours are quite fabulous I have to say!

That looks great! I was at Hobby Lobby on Saturday and they had tons of stuff left and I think they were 60% off, Michaels was at 80% off but not a lot left except faux flowers & leaves.

Your centerpiece is beautiful! The colors of all your items in the cornucopia really pop out, and the figurines are a great addition.
