EASY PUMPKIN THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE
It’s time to think THANKSGIVING TABLES! And an easy and beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece. Even if you are not hosting Thanksgiving this year you can still create a centerpiece that is magazine worthy! And no fancy arranging techniques needed. This centerpiece is soft and informally formal. It’s organic elements play so nicely with the dressiness of mercury glass. It’s restful colors work together and are a nontraditional treat. Just perfect for the center of YOUR table!
If you want to make your own centerpiece, like mine, you will need a shutter (or table runner), 2 larger white pumpkins, 1 blue pumpkin, small baby Boo pumpkins, lots of candlesticks (I used mercury glass) and seeded eucalyptus. Easy “ingredients” for a centerpiece!
I used an old vintage shutter as a table runner down the center of the table! It is full of chipping paint and layers of soft color.
I added 3 large pumpkins across the center of the shutter. One “blue” pumpkin (I think they look more green) flanked by 2 white pumpkins.
Next, I added mercury glass candlesticks with creamy white candles to the centerpiece.
White baby Boo pumpkins were also scattered across the shutter.
And lastly I tucked seeded eucalyptus in between and around the arrangement! I love it’s fluffy texture and delicate leaves.
This is such an easy centerpiece to put together. Wouldn’t something like this look amazing down the center of your dining room table!
Now, how about making an easy and beautiful Thanksgiving Table this year!

Beautiful Yvonne. Tasteful and elegant just like everything else you do.
Lovely as always…But, not much space if someone were dining on the ends!
I love the overall color scheme and the various layering elements. If there is one thing I have learned over the many years of decorating is that when decorators are staging for photos…. Rarely does form meet function. I am with you, I would scale back the size of the shutter ( or whatever you choose as your base) so that I didn’t loose two important seating placements. No way would I want to redo my centerpiece Thanksgiving morning to be able to set the table. No criticism here, Just something I would like to see in future posts from all bloggers. Would live to know what paint color is in the wall above the paneling. Very nice
Most of the links lead to, “Page not found.” Disappointing.
Beautiful centerpiece! The white pumpkins are stunning.
So very pretty, Yvonne! Can I ask you where you find your seeded eucalyptus?
So beautiful…as always:) I so love your table centerpieces…and how you decorate…and your home:D It’s all just marvelous!
I love your centerpiece, but just one question. Do you seal your shutters because of possible lead paint issues?
Such a lovely centerpiece but would definitely not be able to stay on the table while eating as there simply doesn’t look to be enough room for plates etc. Do you remove it and replace with something smaller while eating supper?
This is absolutely stunning! That wood shutter is so yummy and a perfect foundation for your table. Love it.
Beautiful table scape.. Thanks for the inspiration. I was at home goods yesterday and got a couple of pieces that are versatile .the center piece turned out kinda cool. ?
Have a great day.
Everything is so pretty, Yvonne. I love the color scheme.
Since I am hosting Thanksgiving this year (yikes), I am going to copy YOU. That IS the greatest form of flattery, after all. Thank you for being so creative and for sharing your gift. I can’t wait to see what you inspire….
I love your tablescapes but have wondered why the pictures always seem to fade out and therefore, they are not really that clear to view. Is it my link or done on purpose by your design?
It’s taken that way on purpose to accentuate the in focus focal point.
Beautiful centerpiece and I love that you used the old shutter for the base! Thanks for sharing!
Hi Yvonne, loving your fall decorating. What color and brand of paint is used in your dining room? Its so nice and serene.
Oh wow, this is just beautiful, I love the mercury glass mixed in with the beautiful pumpkins! Pinned
Simply amazing! Your table? Well, yes, of course. But what I mean is YOU! Martha Stewart has nothing on you! She has a team of talented helpers -you are just amazing- you just keep churning out great design and ideas for a beautiful home! My jaw just drops with each and every post. Best blog ever…
What a beautiful bounty you created to feast our eyes on Yvonne. The chippy shutter / sparkly Mercury glass combo is divine!
Beautiful, Yvonne! I love the rustic shutter paired with the mercury glass!
Perfect! I’m going to use this idea at my mom’s house when we are there for Thanksgiving.:-) …And maybe for my “mantel” too! So beautiful.
Beautiful! I love the look of the white pumpkins combine with the mercury glass candle holders.
Just gorgeous Yvonne! I love how you paired an old shutter with the shimmery goodness of thos candlesticks – just beautiful!

Beautiful tablescape! I especially like the button napkin rings. I just might have to use my antique buttons to create some.
Gorgeous! I just love the colors… soft and beautiful!
I love how you pulled all these gorgeous items together, and made a fabulous Thanksgiving table setting. I want this at my home.
Elegant yet simple. Love the old shutter as a tray.
