Fall finally made it, and I couldn’t be happier. I hope youre enjoying the cooler temperatures. I'm guessing that most of you, like me, will soon be getting your final thoughts together for Thanksgiving. I have my to-do list scribbled down, and I need to make a trip to the grocery store. After that the only thing left will be the cooking and decorating. We aren't eating at our house this year; we'll be at my parents' house. But just in case you’re the hostess for your family, I’ll help you get your table ready.

Hi there! I’m Kathryn from the home and lifestyle blog Woodbank Lane. I love to create things by shopping my house, and that’s what I did for my fall table. Early in October I bought white pumpkins for decorating, and I wanted to use them one more time before they were done for. They helped me create a centerpiece for a fall tablescape. Here's how it turned out. 

I used only things I could put my hands on around our house. The white platter that served as the base was picked up at a thrift store and was on display in my dining room cabinet. I grabbed it first and arranged the pumpkins to see how they would fill it up. Surprisingly, they fit just right. 

Last year, my daddy gave me some of his many antlers to use around my house. They were the second part of the fall centerpiece equation. I just tucked a few here and there until I liked the way they looked mixed with the pumpkins. It only took a few tries. 

The last element of the arrangement was sprigs of greenery. I made a trip to my yard and clipped away. Never underestimate the value of what’s growing right outside your front door. A trip to Hobby Lobby isn’t always the answer. (Don’t get me wrong, though. I love Hobby Lobby.)

It's pretty simple, but I thought it had just enough flare, and the price was right. I love that the arrangement has lots of natural elements, and the white and green colors blend in nicely with the blue and white china and vases. 

I hope you all have a wonderful time with family and friends as we welcome the holiday season. Once again, I'm very thankful for all your kindness and support of Woodbank Lane over the past few years. And I’m so grateful for the opportunity to write for Druid City Living. I've loved sharing a little of my home and ideas with you.
