A Sassy Southern Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in the South is a grand get-together (which is our word for event).  It's one of the best times of the year, right up there with Christmas.  

This unique centerpiece was very easy to make and looks great on any table.

Add 1 bag of cranberries to the vase with water, an assortment of bright flowers (yellow is pretty, and white will be pretty for Christmas), and use evergreen leaves and twigs from your yard.

The centerpiece for this table is a cornucopia which I have filled with pumpkins of all colors and sizes, a fern plant, and some stems of berries for texture.  Tie a burlap bow around the base and viola!

Since this table was not very wide, I used some extra crystal stemmed glasses as centerpieces.  I carried over my cranberry and yellow theme, filling the glasses with water and cranberries and adding petite yellow roses.  I used three glasses because things are always best done in odd numbers, one, three, five...

Here, I spray painted the inside of what were clear glass pumpkins with silver glass mirror paint.  Again, I used the cranberry and yellow flowers as pretty additions.

ACORNS!  These yummy fall treats were easier than pie to make!  You will need:
1 bag Hershey Kisses
1 bag mini Nutter Butter
1 bag regular chocolate chips
1 can chocolate frosting
All you do is connect everything with chocolate frosting!  The kids go nuts for them ;)
