I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.

Pears don’t last long enough for a center piece for me (probably because the weather tends to heat up around here). It doesn’t scream Thanksgiving either. The pumpkin ones are not bad but I like the cornucopia best. It’s for a traditional holiday so traditional decorations always seem better to me.
The Pumpkin one with the branches seems like a pain. If you’re going to use the table for food later it’ll be a hassel to move that one, where the other you just pick up the wooden box.
The top one is just as bad as the pumpkin branch one. Too much clutter, too much to move when food comes out.
The bottom pic isn’t bad but it doesn’t feel traditional at all.
I like #3 the best. How about the last one…what do you do with the big articoke that’s sitting on your plate once you sit down to eat?! lol
I like #3 also. I love those green pumpkins (I’m guessing that’s not the technical name, lol). I’ve got one on my porch surrounded by some little gourds.
#1- it has items from the meal & looks rustic. I would do that one 🙂

I love #1- so rustic. I think I like, too, because the table is AWESOME:-).
We have no room for centerpieces once all the food is on the table and the glasses, water and wine, and the side bread plate for overflow. We just always have 2 taper candles that have a fall leaf thingie around them. None of those tables, no matter how nice they look have room for 15+ serving dishes. We always do family style, though some dishes may still be on the kitchen table if we have a realllly big crowd. I have something similar to the cornucopia #5 on my sideboard.
I love #3.

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, we are in fastforward ” here comes christmas” mode down here. If I had to choose I like number six for the simplicity and the fact that you can fit all the condiments on the table as well.
The artichokes made me laugh! I like #3, but it doesn’t leave much room for serving dishes. We’ve always done a nice big fruit bowl in my family. It somehow became tradition to top off dinner with a clementine.
