What You’ll Need

white-pumpkins cake stand small pumpkins 51QX+AGxPPL._SL500_AA300_ 40099905500 unnamed 51rn03oIYgL._SL500_AA300_
* 2 Large {squished} white pumpkins {I don’t know the actual name of these, do comment if you do!}, 2 medium/round pumpkins, a few small white pumpkins. I tend to buy a few extra pumpkins during Halloween that I don’t carve so I can use them through November for Thanksgiving. Spray painting them gold as well as adding corn would be cute too!
* Cake stand.
* Round Cork Trivets.
* Gold Glitter faux branches… though real curly willow would look just as pretty.
* Reindeer SuperMoss
* Wicker Twig Balls… in natural & dark brown
* Simple silver candlestick holders in varying heights.

thanksgiving fall table centerpiece with pumpkins and moss

1. Set 3 round cork trivets down in a row to protect your table. You may choose to use a tray or mat.
2. Using my smallest cake stand, I placed my medium orange pumpkin on it and set it on the center trivet.
3. Place your curly willow or faux twig branches flat on either side of the cake stand, on top of your trivets.
4. Balance the two large, white pumpkins on top of the twigs/trivets and wedge them under your cake stand.
5. Place your smaller pumpkins around the center as well as your candlesticks.
6. Place your Reindeer Moss around the base of the pumpkin to cover the cake stand, fill in the blanks and hide your trivets under the white pumpkins and between the twigs.
7. Place your twig spheres as a textured accent.

    Hi Maegan

    I think your white pumpkin is a Flat White Boer pumpkin. Someone mentioned Fairytale pumpkins but they are a mahogany brown colour.

    Anyways, it looks lovely.

    First off, I am super impressed that you guessed exactly where I lived based off of my outfit pictures! Are you a born-and-raised Angeleno?

    This centerpiece is so festive! And a perfect use for the pumpkins I bought while trying to delude myself into thinking I would actually carve pumpkins for Halloween. Two birds, one DIY stone.
