Is it too early to start decorating for Christmas? I haven't even done any Halloween decorating yet, but the new Pottery Barn catalog came in the mail yesterday and it's full of holiday decorations. It has this pre-lighted outdoor garland that would look great on my retaining wall... But I'm getting ahead of myself. I know most of us are just starting to think about Thanksgiving.
One thing that caught my eye in the catalog is some great ideas for easy Thanksgiving centerpieces. The best part of these tabletop ideas, though, is that you can either buy them from Pottery Barn for somewhere between $12 and $20 or, with a little effort, you could make them yourself from things you find in your yard, at the grocery store or at the craft store.
This arrangement, for example, combines twigs, acorns, leaves and a candle in a glass vase. Everything but the vase and the candle could be found in my yard right now. Some other simple ideas for Thanksgiving centerpieces include wheat, pomegranates, cranberries and apples.
