Are you ready for some last minute Thanksgiving inspiration?!
First, pick your jaw up off the floor.. I know, I know.. this centerpiece should be framed. Ok, let’s talk about Pinterest for a minute. How many of you have this very centerpiece pinned on your Fall Decor boards? Loi Thai, known for his luscious Swedish Antiques, Tone on Tone created this breath-taking white fall centerpiece LAST YEAR. I can’t imagine how many times this has been pinned, or shared. I, pinned this beauty last year, but just drooled over it. Well, it circulated social media as much or more this year. If you aren’t following Loi Thai, Tone on Tone, on all social media platforms, what are you waiting for?
Back to Pinterest. Do you create after you pin? I compare pinning to ear marking my favorite catalogs. Like, I “plan” on purchasing that outfit, throw blanket, or chair cushions, but most of the time I don’t. Same with Pinterest.. I plan and swoon and dream.
I really want to put inspiration into action!! Sometimes all it takes is a photo to get the ole noggin goin’. I am a visual person all the way, so today I did just that!
This morning, I just happened to see his photo again. Instead of drooling, I decided to shop my home and create a faux rendition of my own. Loi Thai used luscious real white pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, antlers and soft candle light. Ok, I had the antlers, but everything else in my creation is FAKE!
I used faux white pumpkins, faux white hydrangeas, and votive candles 😀
The eucalyptus I purchased from Trader Joe’s a month ago dried perfectly. I figured why not snip it and add it in too.
You know why I love faux flowers? Because you can take them apart 😉 I just pulled the individual flower clusters from the stem and sprinkled them about. Of course, adding my velvet pumpkins was a no brainer.
I went a step further and added my pink baby boos. I spray painted a few a while back and painted the stems copper. I love pink, I love pink, I love pink 😀 Thank God Glenn is good with that!
I don’t know if I have ever loved a centerpiece more!! And all it took was putting inspiration into action! My biggest reason for even starting this journey a year ago was to provide inspiration. I post in hopes to inspire others, and I draw so much inspiration from you all!! Being copied is the highest form of flattery, right? In this case, I knew I didn’t have exactly the items Loi Thai used, but I used what I had and still created a beautiful piece of art.
So, are you hosting Thanksgiving? You could create this centerpiece and put your own spin on it! Don’t just pin, do! Have a wonderful weekend!
Christmas is near, and I have started planning! Check out more farmhouse Christmas here.
