Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas + a Live Google Hangout!


Oh, my. What have I gotten myself into today?! A LIVE Google+ hangout? Good thing I'll be sharing the screen with the lovely Aimee from It's Overflowing. If I stutter and stammer, she'd better swoop in and save me! :)



During our Google+ hangout, Aimee and I will be talking about Thanksgiving tables and centerpieces. Come see what we have to say!


I'm giving the 411 on how I took all those orange and cream pumpkins from my Halloween decor and gave them new life for my Thanksgiving table.


Three coats of white acrylic craft paint is all it took to freshen those tired pumpkins up!


**If you're curious about the cool round wooden place card holders, I bought them on Craigslist, but the original owner bought them on etsy. Here is a shop who sells something very similar for a reasonable price! Hope that helps.

Free THANKFUL Printable:

{to print, right-click and save to computer}
Simply print 2 copies, cut around the border and place them back-to-back on memo holders (you can make DIY picture holders using this tutorial or this tutorial!) and stick them into 8 pumpkins. Easy as can be!

  10. Wow Emily, that's so creative! I really like how you painted your little pumpkins white and stuck the little picture holders into them. I had to click on the link to see how you made the picture holders. Using the wrapped floral wire is genius! I wonder how quickly I could get this done myself?? So glad I found you on Design Dining and Diapers. I'm your newest subscriber!

    P.S. Not sure if you realize it, but both links that you put up for the DIY picture holders go to the same post.
