{Thrifty Thursday} A Fall Centerpiece

It’s that time of year again! Well, at least for most of the country. Here in Arizona it’s still warm and Summer-y but I’m trying to get into the Fall “mood” by drinking my favorite Pumpkin Spice Lattes and breaking out the pumpkin decor! For this Thrifty Thursday I thought I’d update my newly decked out Santa Fe Tablescape by just changing out the centerpiece with some thrifted Fall decor.

I found this awesome large pumpkin cookie jar at my local Arizona Goodwill for just $3.99! I was so excited, it’s such a great piece! So I layered a table runner and a piece of burlap that we already had and placed the pumpkin jar on top of a small tray I also found at Goodwill for just $2.99! I wanted the pumpkin to have a little height to it so that I could wrap the base with some fall leaves that you can find (and should be on sale right now) at your local Hobby Lobby or Michaels. And this is how it turned out! I love the warm colors and how it’s now got me in the mood to add a few more pumpkins to the house. Up next? The mantel! So stay tuned!
