An Autumn Centrepiece

This past week I focused on putting together a centrepiece that I want for our upcoming Thanksgiving.
In Canada it is celebrated mid-October.

I started with my long wooden box that I built a few years ago.
The DIY tutorial is here.

Knowing I wanted fresh pumpkins and gourds I stopped by my local country roadside stand.

In the box I have a medium size white pumpkin, gourds, small size Indian corn,
fresh leaves, balls of twig, wheat, bits of burlap and some tall taper candles.

 Having a few pumpkins leftover, I put them in the bathroom.  Added a bit of Fall in this room.

Pumpkins everywhere.
Kinda cute.

Check back with me in a few weeks for my Thanksgiving tablescape.

Let's stay connected, follow me on 



  1. looks great Diane. I have done a big centerpiece in the past, only to realize that I have to find a place for it while we eat because I need the table space for all the food - are you able to keep this on your table during dinner?

  2. I really like your centrepiece box all decorated for fall. It looks so lovely. The pumpkins in the galvanized pail are cute too.

  3. Love your dining room table center piece.....gorgeous!!!!
    Happy Fall!

  4. I really like this box. It is so simple yet the colour is perfect for the setting. It would be perfect year round to use on a table with some changes in the contents. It makes us get creative doesn't it.
    I won't be having a Thanksgiving dinner this year as we will all be at a family wedding on a rustic farm. I can't wait to see how they decorate that place up.

  5. Love your fall decorations. Your home is lovely.

  6. Love your long wooden box. I will look at the tutorial. I have a tool box I love to decorate. I love them in the bathroom, maybe I'll put some too, lol..
    Have a great week ahead.

  7. Wonderful centerpiece for your dining room table - love that box and how you've filled it! The bucket of pumpkins in the BR looks so cute! I'm planning out my Thanksgiving tablescape too - can't believe it's only 2 weeks away!

  8. SO Fall! I love what you've done. What a special touch in the bathroom, which is FABULOUS, by the way! ;)
