If you’re looking to colorize your Thanksgiving table for the upcoming festivities, this Rainbow Paper Pumpkin tablescape is just the ticket! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and is the ideal time to create a really beautiful tablescape.The beauty with this arrangement is that not only is it colorful, festive, and beautiful, it’s paper and completely disposable, making it perfect for a meal with kids. You don’t need to worry about broken dishes or decor, you can simply enjoy the meal and the company!
Each pumpkin is made from 1 piece of ASTROBRIGHTS®paper and some craft wire, making it extremely inexpensive to boot. Astrobrights Paper offers the most vibrant colored paper and we were so enamored that we knew we had to create a rainbow arrangement. We used almost the colors in the Spectrum Assorted Cardstock pack to create a beautiful rainbow.
See how easy it is to replicate with Astrobrights Paper!

What’s Easter without dying eggs? There are lots of cool techniques and methods to create fun, patterned eggs, but sometimes simple is best. This go around we wanted to focus on the color palette more than anything else. We dyed our eggs in a bright and punchy palette or corals, chartreuse, and forest green to create this Easter Egg Runner Tablescape! Bonus? Instead of buying kits to dye your eggs, you just need basic food coloring! Plus a whole lot of eggs and the carton they come in! Set the table with some coordinating dinnerware, and you’re ready for Easter Brunch.

Are you familiar with the Rose Parade? Every year my family would watch the Rose Parade in all its glory. Never mind the Rose Bowl which happens on the same day. Who needs football when you’ve got a magical festival of flowers? The floats have to be completely covered with flowers or natural materials like leaves, seeds, or bark. In addition to floats, there are marching bands, equestrian units, and a royal court. Guys, this is an American pastime! Naturally, we had to create a Rose Parade tablescape since we did one for the Macy’s Day Parade!
Gather your girlfriends together to make mini floats covered with brightly colored flowers! The floats line the center of an otherwise all-white tablescape in honor of the “White Suitors” aka: all the men and women who volunteer and make the parade possible wear crisp white uniforms. This is a classy occasion, folks! It’d be great as a New Year’s Eve dinner or a brunch on the day of.
FTD was kind enough to provide all the beautiful flowers (like this bouquet!) to transform our floats with! So start prepping for the new year, because a Rose Parade Tablescape is the best way!
