How to Layer a Fall Table Centerpiece | Creativecaincabin.comHere’s an easy Thanksgiving centerpiece that only requires one stop to pick up all the items. I gathered mine up after class one day at our local farmers market. I love one stop shopping, it saves so much time, and time is something I don’t have a lot of these days. While I was getting it all around I thought you might like to see my plan for layering everything.

How to Layer a Fall Table Centerpiece | Creativecaincabin.comFirst I removed the Fall arrangement that was currently in place, and started by adding a brown and tan grainsack runner. Next came the wood slices and the green glass vases. Make sure you add things in odd numbers it will be more pleasing to the eye. For instance there are 3 vases, and 5 wood slices.

How to Layer a Fall Table Centerpiece | Creativecaincabin.comWe won’t be having a large crowd for Thanksgiving this year so a simple arrangement like this will work out perfectly.

    Oh this is so pretty…and perfect for your cabin. I’m not having a crowd either but am looking forward to cooking and preparing. Have a good Sunday!

    Simply beautiful!

    I would copy you a bit, but we won’t have room on the table for much of a centerpiece when we get all the people and foot to the table. But, I can do a shorter/smaller take off.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    I feel better to know am not only one to pick greenery or whatever along the road. I carry a pair of scissors in my glove box to cut coupons and greenery/flowers, those scissors have come in handy many times.
    I used to get your posts, been a long time, maybe a year or more, I tried to subscribe again but was told am already on the list. As soon as I saw your photo I remembered you. I always enjoyed your posts/blog. Hope all is good in your life. I saw your blog name on “The Country Farm Home” post so had to come on over, was just thinking about your blog other day. Glad I found you again.
    Your arrangements are so gorgeous, you’re a natural flower arranger.
    Happy week and season

      Jane thank you for looking me up again. I have no idea why things change and you are no longer getting my updates, it’s always a mystery. I carry nippers in my purse all the time and am always cutting things from the roadside, it makes for a cheap arrangement. I should think about putting them in my glove box too, they get heavy in my purse.
