Last Minute Centerpiece for Your Thanksgiving Table




Welcome to the Party!  Need some last  minute ideas for your Thanksgiving event....you have come to the right place. 

I don't know about you, but it seems that the tasks that require the least amount of my time in my holiday preparations, tend to be the ones that turn out the best. 

The one's people talk about .....and remember.



I am talking about the ones that even though I had very little to no planning, only needed a few materials and did it within minutes of my guests knocking at the door, yet still tend to steal the attention at the holiday table...... 



Not to mention that my guests will think I picked this stunner up at some florist in the city and paid a fortune, even though I only spent $10.00 at the local grocery store on the flowers and a few minutes in the backyard picking up some sticks and spray painting them orange.



And once I placed the flowers and painted sticks in an old crock, I cut off some sprigs from an asparagus fern and draped them over the sides. 
Something that looks so planned and intentional, yet a totally last minute idea..... for your totally last minute arrangement..... for your totally planned out table.




Perhaps no plan may be the best plan after all....for your centerpiece anyways.



Today I am joining forces with these other amazing bloggers who are sharing more last minute ideas for your Thanksgiving event. I hope you will visit them and be inspired by some of their creative ideas as well.

From My Front Porch To Yours






Grateful~
for my life and my many blessings
