One of my favorite things to do at Thanksgiving is decorate the table. It is never anything over the top or fancy, but once it's done it always make me happy.

Over the last month I had seen the prettiest flowers at my local grocery store. Every time I would stop in for groceries I was always so tempted to pick some up, but never actually did. While I was shopping for our Thanksgiving dinner I thought the holiday was the perfect excuse to by those flowers. I knew they would make our table beautiful!

I went back and forth with on wether I should buy one or two bouquets. I went with two and I am so happy I did. I placed the flowers in mismatched glass vases that I already had in my closet. I am the first to admit that I am no florist, and had no idea how to arrange these bouquets. I just tried to find a nice balance of color and size. 

Last year I used a long skinny box filled with pumpkins and candles as my Thanksgiving table center piece. The burlap ribbon, place mats, and napkins were all repeats from last year. I loved the box of candles, but I think I love the flowers even more. I think our table this year was the perfect blend of fancy and rustic!

No table would be complete without some place cards. At least no table of mine. I don't really care if people actually sit where I put their name, I just think they look super cute on the table.

I was inspired by some place cards I found on the Teaspoon Living blog. I knew they would be really easy to create, and I also knew that my little London would have so much fun helping me with this project. The hardest part was actually creating the turkey, but I found a Silhouette cut file, so even that was pretty simple.

On the inside of the place cards I wrote one "would you rather" question that I had planned on everyone reading and answering while we ate. It was a fun game that took minutes to play and added a fun little twist to our Thanksgiving dinner!

Flowers are seriously one of my favorite ways to decorate my home. They just add the nicest touch to any room. So even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, these flowers are still sitting on my table and make me smile every time I see them.
