Rustic Thanksgiving Inspiration in Rich Colors

I was out and about searching for Thanksgiving inspiration when I came across this beautiful rustic wedding at one of my favorite blogs, Style Me Pretty.

Casual tall branches poke out of an unassuming vase and become the focal point for a buffet or kitchen table arrangement. A hodge podge of fresh flowers from your local farmers market contribute color, but there’s no need to stick to a style or shade — buy what’s fresh and in season.
