Thanksgiving Decor Inspiration | The Natural Socialite

I’m hosting my first Thanksgiving dinner party here in Chicago, so I’ve been searching for inspiration to jump start my creative juices. I want to do something fun & inspiring without over doing the decor, and without breaking the bank of course!!  I love these ideas from our friends at Better Homes & Gardens!  There site is full of inspiration for everyone & every budget!  Check out some of my faves from this year:

Footed glass containers hold ribbons, beans, and nuts in this fall centerpiece. A copper tray adds sophistication to the display and makes the brown-hue decoration portable- Source: BHG

 
Leaves in a copper pail
 
All it takes is a vintage pail and some leaves from Mother Nature to make this fall-worthy centerpiece. Place magnolia leaves into a bucket, using florist’s foam to keep the arrangement in place. The arrangement works best if you place tall leaves in the back and shorter leaves in the front- Source: BHG
 
Go Low arrangement
 
Dress up your dining table — without hindering conversation — by making a festive, low-profile centerpiece. Cut branches of hypericum berries and chartreuse spider chrysanthemums short enough to just peek over the tops of several glass vases; then arrange them down the center of a long tray. Fill out the rest of the tray with apples, pears, and bunches of elderberries to create an abundant display- Source: BHG
Natural Wood Round
 
Use a tree round (available at garden centers or crafts stores) as the podium for your fall centerpiece. A simple pumpkin and wine bottle provide great height- Source: BHG
