Last Minute Thanksgiving Tablescape

I am a procrastinator. I really am trying to work on that.  Being a blogger has really helped me to work on this, and I have found myself being more planned and ready for things.  But, as we are in things, its hard to be on top of everything.  That is why I thought that a last minute Thanksgiving tablescape would be a great post for today’s Thanksgiving themed bloghop.

I love joining up with other amazing bloggers and showing what we have all come up with.  This month, we decided to focus on Thanksgiving and fall.  I have already created some really great fall tablescapes, including one with books, and an outdoor table.  

What I wanted to focus on today is how to pull together a last minute Thanksgiving tablescape.  So, I decided not to plan, and to throw it together as if I hadn’t even thought  about it.  I mean, I honestly think that most of us do not think about decorating a table when you are so worried about creating the tastiest meal ever!

But, creating a Thanksgiving tablescape is a wonderful way to set the tone and create a cozy space for your guests.  So, there was no shopping, or planning or scheming for this.  I went and shopped from my house, and found things all within 20 minutes and then threw it together.

I took the galvanized bucket and filled it with my deep burgundy leaves.   I then set  this in the middle of the magnolia wreath.
