Create an Elegant Thanksgiving Arrangement

I have chosen a ceramic oblong container to hold pumpkins and fall leaves.  I think it will look great filled with fall leaves and pumpkins!  The empty container measures eighteen inches long, and ten inches wide, and nine inches tall at the handle height.

The pumpkin assortment includes one large white pumpkin, one medium orange pumpkin, one small white pumpkin, one small orange pumpkin, and one small green and white striped pumpkin, which makes a total of five pumpkins.  For fall leaves, I used four stems of red and gold leaves.

For tools, I chose a pair of sharp scissors to cut one and a quarter inch satin ribbon in a pale golden beige, and a pair of floral clippers to cut stems.

The empty container does not need anything to anchor the pumpkins and leaf stems.  The size of the container is perfect for wedging the pumpkins in place.

For decorative accessories, I used a beige damask napkin sitting on a tan dinner plate.  I tied the satin ribbon around the cloth napkin and inserted three stems of wheat through the bow.

The finished height of the arrangement is twenty inches.  The finished width of the arrangement is eleven inches.

I hope you will be inspired to set a beautiful table for Thanksgiving!

She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
