I hate my dining room at Thanksgiving. It's all black and white and modern, so it really doesn't work for this holiday, or at least with the traditional colors. Christmas is a different story, and I love the reds and glitz and glam. But for Thanksgiving, I always want rustic, and it just doesn't work. So, I mostly just don't bother trying to make it work.
Same thing this year - a 5 minute centerpiece that my kids helped with (they liked placing the pumpkins). And I know I have to iron the napkins- they look terrible but I just haven't had time yet. So I cropped the photos in a lot to take away the black and white parts of the room because it looks so bad with this. But anyway, here is a 5 minute centerpiece that'll get you by when you're just not in the mood to do more: 4 antlers (I had them in a basket already), gourds, and candles. It looks even better with succulents, but I don't have any:
Oh God please ignore the napkins!!
See what I mean about these colors with the black and white? Yuck.
Here's how it could look if I had the time / energy to add succulents:
Isn't that last one amazing? I'm not in love with the art, but the table itself - so beautiful!
