Accent Table for Thanksgiving

After I took down  my Halloween decor on the accent table 
I readied it for Thanksgiving

 I love this statue of the Indian woman with
the cornucopia.
She and the black gourd were from Hobby Lobby
 a couple of years ago.

  I made up a new arrangement with some dried Indian corn and pine cones and set it on a wooden pedestal.
If you like you can see that same glass bowl used last year with my
*Pottery Barn Inspired Corn Project*
 just click above to see it

I used a thick rubber band to hold them together, then tied the ribbon around it.  I wanted to stand the corn up so I stacked the tall pinecones in an upright position to help keep them standing.  I loosened the corn husks a bit to give the top more fullness.  (I collected those pinecones at my son's new home in Pennsylvania).  I tossed in some potpourri filler. 

I decided to use my green lantern for a little color and my candle from Pottery Barn.  It smells soo good!
I love how candlelight creates such a cozy atmosphere.

This table topper is by April Cornell.  
I like that blue accent she included in the design.
It's called "Falling Leaves" they have a larger one with this beautiful fringe on it...you should see it! 
By the way if you shop there directly and sign up with your email you can get $10 off on your first purchase! (no I am not compensated for saying that)

 I think I can smell the pumpkin pie and turkey already!  I really enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and can't wait to share it with my family.

I'm joining the following parties:

  1. Love the table vignette…from the beautiful Indian doll to the wonderful linens of April Cornell..such a warm and inviting table and yes I can smell the turkey and pumpkin pie too!!

  2. Beautiful!

    Thanks so much for your visit! Our Michaels have had that set up at the check out for about 3 years now and it definitely cuts down on confusion...


  3. A very pretty Thanksgiving/Fall vignette.
    I was in HL recently and was tempted when I saw the Fall decor marked down, but I keep going. I am trying to declutter instead of accumulate. :)
    Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. The vignette is beautiful - love it in the candlelight! The table topper is just the perfect addition to the vignette you created...such pretty colors!

  5. What a pretty vignette, Liz! I'm not sure where we'll be for Thanksgiving; so, I haven't done a thing! I'll just admire your lovely decor!

  6. Love the linens and your vignette is fabulous. Love that Indian. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, marty

  7. I love the Indian woman! Nice vignette Liz. Always so lovely!

  8. I love this little vignette. Especially the figurine and the corn stalk arrangement. Very inspiring!
