This year for Thanksgiving we went with a fuschia colored table cloth and a muted cream table runner. The bright centerpiece made with fuschia roses, mini pumpkins and fall leaves (from our yard) complemented up on the cheery table cloth. We weren't sure if the mini pumpkins were going to work, but they turned out to fit in nicely and I was happy to have one final use for the pumpkins before they got tossed. We just used wooden skewers to hold the pumpkins in place. Check out the results below:
The boys wore turkey headdresses from Joann's to help celebrate the day....
And it turned out that I didn't need to worry about the pumpkin shortage, but instead faced a toffee bit shortage. It seemed that everyone and their grandmother had planned on trying out Martha's Blue Ribbon Pie recipe and I couldn't find any toffee bits anywhere. Luckily Hubby picked up some mini Heath bars that were easy enough to chop up so I could still make the pie. It turned out OK, but I am sure my version would not have won any ribbons.
