Decorating on a Dime: our rustic & refined Thanksgiving centerpieces...

Decorating on a Dime:

 Rustic & Refined Centerpieces

Since Zach and I moved out to rural Iowa, I've been looking for creative and inexpensive ways to decorate our hundred-year-old farmhouse. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I cannot wait to dress-up the dining room table. We're expecting to have a houseful of family and excited to share our first big holiday at The Farm!  

One of my favorite things about living on the farm has been simply watching the prairie grass wave in the wind. I knew I wanted to use this tall grass in some creative way sooner or later. When I started thinking about Thanksgiving dinner at the farmhouse, it hit me... prairie grass centerpieces!  Not only did I love the fact that the centerpieces would be made from such a "mundane" element, but I love their elegant simplicity.

I found these inexpensive containers at TJ Maxx on our trip to Des Moines last weekend. At under $7 apiece, I couldn't pass them up. I love their slender shape and shimmer.

I'm using gold and neutrals to decorate for Thanksgiving. What colors will you be using? Do you have a traditional Thanksgiving menu planned? 

Coming soon...  a look at our dining room "all dressed-up for the holidays!"
