Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece for the Last Minute

LAST UPDATED: Jun 16, 2021 | PUBLISHED: Nov 04, 2015 | By:

I was honored when Bre with Rooms for Rent invited me to join her Thanksgiving Tablescape tour. I thoroughly enjoy creating centerpieces and setting a beautiful table, so I was delighted to join in with Shades of Blue Interiors, Jeanne Oliver Designs, Zevyjoy, and Liz Marie Blog. They’re all unbelievably creative. Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way of our big, beautiful dreams. I became overwhelmed with sick kiddos, a busy work schedule and impending travel. When paired with a couple of gloomy days I found myself where I often do – working at the last minute to put something together. I had to remind myself that I didn’t start my blog to share tablescapes that I spent months planning or to share unattainable beauty. I started it to share how we celebrate every day, encouraging you to do the same with ease. This easy last-minute Thanksgiving centerpiece can be created in just 5 minutes, with a trip to the grocery store. It’s completely fuss-free, which puts guests at ease. So don’t fret any unexpected guests, enjoy them!
