I wanted to play around with an inexpensive and easy autumn table setting that would also work for Thanksgiving as well. All of the elements can be found at a grocery store and cost for about $25-$30. We started with a white pumpkin that was $3.99 and cut a hole in the top like we were going to carve it and then hallowed it out a little bit and put a metal can inside it to act as a vase. We then used a pack of roses that were $5.99 and some eucalyptus that was $2.99 and some berries from out yard and filled up the pumpkin vase until it was overflowing a bit.
After that we laid out some more eucalyptus and sprinkled a few pears and some berries from the yard over top of the eucalyptus. Then we took six apples and cut out the center a little bit so we could stick taper candles in them. After that we just added some cinnamon sticks between some of the pears which provided a delicious aroma and an unexpected texture and then we placed a baby pumpkin on each plate and that was it!
We placed the pumpkin vase on this cake stand from HomeGoods to help elevate it a bit and add some varying heights to the display.
These are the Emma plates from Pottery Barn and the napkins are from Pottery Barn as well (from nine years ago!)
