Super Simple Fall Centerpiece

I used to be a Pioneer Woman blog stalker, before I became a blogger. Now, there's hardly any time for  leisure reading, as I am dividing my time between blogging tasks and taking care of my family ~ making sure they are fed, have clean clothes...you get the picture. However, last week I made sure to check in on her blog and I saw that she posted about making a simple Thanksgiving decorations. Simple? I'm in! Here is my version of her Super Simple Fall Centerpiece.
Here's what you need:
small pumpkins, a cake plate, various green trimmings
Simply arrange your pumpkins on the cake plate and tuck in your green trimmings. I took mine from the bushes in my backyard.
You could add in colorful leaves, or just leave it green and simple.  Pioneer Woman added in some little battery-operated lights to bring a little shimmer to the arrangement. If you have a large table and lots of little pumpkins, you could make up a few of these on cake plates of varying heights.
What can I say? I kept mine super simple...as the name implies. ;-) Unfortunately, as I completed this little project, it became a bit like the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.... After I made the centerpiece, I needed to make some napkin rings. After I made the napkin rings, I needed to do a tablescape. After I did a tablescape, I needed to bake something to add to the tablescape... and so on...and so on. I'll be sharing this little creative spurt with you over the next few days, so I hope you'll be back to see what this little "mouse" has up her sleeve.
