Most of the retail stores have already decked the halls for Christmas,(everyone except Nordy's thank you very much!) but for those of us who don't have a fourth quarter sales quota to meet,we are still playing by the seasonal rules and just now getting our thoughts together for Thanksgiving. The above is my attempt at a seasonal arrangement.  I have always liked bringing natural elements into my arrangements and the cotton added just the right touch. 

 What do you think?

Below are are some centerpieces I found on Shelterness.com  They have so many great ideas.  I decided to show the ones I have actually made before, so if a reader wants to know how it is done, I can tell them.  I especially like hollowing out veggies and pumpkins to use as centerpieces and candleholders.  Most of these items can be found at your grocery store or local farmers market and are very inexpensive. I hope this gives you some ideas so you will have fun creating your own fall centerpiece!

For more ideas you can pop over to their website and
see for yourself.  There are some really great ideas
 for your door decorations, garlands, mantles and more.
  I'm so motivated, I'm off to buy more pumpkins!  
Have a happy Tuesday!

  7. I love the cotton! What a gorgeous floral arrangement, so rustic and chic! I saw another blogger who included pheasant feathers in hers, it looked amazing. I'm with you - I hate that Thanksgiving gets overlooked..it's my favorite holiday. Thanks for the ideas and congrats on the nomination.
