Each year I love thinking about how I’ll decorate my table for Thanksgiving. Oftentimes, I’ll pull everything together earlier in the fall to enjoy the bounty of the season we’re currently in for as long as possible.


This year was no different. I picked some squash and miniature pumpkins from our field. I wanted the larger squash to be the focal point of the table (I love their color so much!) and decided to add in some pinecones as well.

When I visited my parents property this summer, I gathered a bagful of Sugar Pine pinecones and am so glad I did. Their size and shape are truly eye catching.

Laying out the table couldn’t be more simple. I start with a table runner, then place the large squash evenly spaced along the center of the table, followed by the mini pumpkins, and finally the pinecones.

And now the stage is set for a most scrumptious Thanksgiving feast, starting with these mouth watering Thanksgiving Stuffing Muffins made by my friend, Sylvia. You can find her recipe here.

Something to consider is that your table doesn’t need to be complicated. By pulling together a few natural elements, you can have a warm and inviting tablescape with very little effort.
