Fall / Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Here's a simple centerpiece I did last November for a little dinner party. Casual as always, I pulled this Fall look together with things I had on hand:I used some heavy duty old-fashioned "dripless" candles, red maple leaves, chestnuts, satin ribbon and a large, oval pewter tray.
I wrote things that I was thankful for on some of the leaves using a white paint pen.
Please check out my other Fall posts for more seasonal Inspiring Ideas!

I love it when it all comes together with things you have on hand! The idea of writing things you are thankful for on the leaves is wonderful! I just might have to borrow that one! Thanks.

Even though I'm a California girl and it was 96 degrees here yesterday, I still LOVE Fall, and pretend we have seasons. This is a beautiful idea! Thanks for sharing :)

visiting via Heidi's Thanksgiving ideas post, great blog. This is such an elegant, yet simple idea, that I would't think of it, trying to do something elaborate that wouldn't look as nice. Great job!

Thomas, I used a pewter tray. Not sure the link you're referring to ... But any mirror would look great with this concept!
