I decided I was sick of my dining room table decorations and that it was time to switch it up for the fall. Here is what I decided to do:
I have to keep it minimalistic because this is where we eat everyday and I don't want to have to move everything all time.
For the candles I took two of the vases that had held my wedding flower arrangements and I filled them about a 1/2 inch with dried green peas (a bag of peas was $1 at Target). I put the candle in the center (each candle was $4) and then I filled up to my desired height with more peas.
I had this glass bowl already and I had previously purchased the glass balls from the Christmas Tree Shoppe (they have our initials on them). I just added some pine cones to the mix (pine cone vase filler $4.84 at Target). I also already had the burlap table runner, I bought it from Target a while ago, but they still have them there.
It turned out to be a very simple, functional, and festive table top! And it was only about $15 since I had most of the supplies already. I have already decided for my Christmas decorations I am going all out, so keep and eye out for that post once Thanksgiving passes!
