The Hillside Thanksgiving Wreath

Anyone who's been to our house has probably noticed the lack of decorations in every room except my son's room.  And then I entered and won a giveaway at the Hillside Home. I was super excited to hang it on our front door... and then I did and realized just how ugly our front door is. So I set it on the table in our front entryway, added some little pumpkins Peter picked up at the store a while back.   

I used my son's trick-or-treat bag to take up a little negative space while I figured things out
 I eventually needed to hang the wreath (which, in reality, looks better anyway) because my cats kept getting on the table and chewing on it.
 I found a bag of dried... plants? at the dollar store and threw them in a square vase I already owned.  Then I added some more dried fruit and another vase which I'll eventually put some fall-ish flowers into. We found this string of Halloween lights while cleaning out the bonus room, so I draped them over the table to turn the whole fall theme into a Halloween theme.
