Cornucopia Thanksgiving Tablescape

Wow – can you believe it’s November!  We are entering the busiest time of the year, but so full of wonderful things!  Today a group of bloggers have gathered together to share our Thanksgiving table decor!      My tablescape features a large cornucopia as a centerpiece and you’ll find so many more creative ideas for your Thanksgiving table.  The links to each blog is at the bottom of this post.

Cornucopia Tablescape – Count Your Blessings DIY Tablecloth

The theme of my Thanksgiving table is “Count Your Blessings”.  I created a custom tablecloth from cream colored burlap and “Count Your Blessings” on the sides and “One by One” on the ends.  You can find the tutorial to make your own tablecloth HERE.

Cornucopia Tablescape – Count Your Blessings Cards

To keep with the “Count Your Blessings” theme, I created cards for each place setting so guests can take a moment before the meal and literally count (list) some of their many blessings.   These cards are available to download and print in my FREE printable library.  Atop each card is a wood pencil – I got these pencils years ago at HomeGoods (I still see them there for sale periodically).  I bring them out each fall and winter for gatherings and games – they are so fun!

Cornucopia Tablescape – Centerpiece

For my centerpiece, I used a large cornucopia that I purchased at Pottery Barn a few years ago (unfortunately, they no longer carry this).   It’s large, but easy to move out of the way as needed.  I used white pumpkins that I had outside, along with some indian corn, corn tassels, and dried seed pods to complete the look. The largest pumpkin pretty much fills the opening of the horn of plenty, and the other smaller pumpkins look like they are spilling out.

I scattered some pretty leaves and gold walnuts around the base of the cornucopia.  Metallic gold spray paint was used to make those walnuts shine and the same paint made my old copper-colored chargers golden – to better suit the color scheme.  Gold mercury glass votives are scattered around the table and are so pretty when lit.

Cornucopia Tablescape – Place Settings

Each place setting features a cornucopia folded napkin holding a felted wool pumpkin place card and a few gold walnuts.  You can see how I made the pumpkin place cards HERE.  The tutorial for the cornucopia napkin fold can be found HERE.
