Thanksgiving has come awfully quickly this year, but there is still plenty of time to perfect the look of your dining room table before it’s time for your delicious feast. Last year, I shared some of my favorite Thanksgiving table settings, but this year I’d like to focus on simple and elegant centerpiece ideas. These centerpieces don’t have to take up a lot of space on the table, leaving more room for all the dishes of my favorite meal of the year!
Nature-inspired Thanksgiving table centerpieces are some of the most beautiful, affordable, and simple centerpieces to arrange. While you’re hunting down the perfect turkey, consider stopping by a florist for some lovely blooms in autumn colors. Sure you can always arrange them in a vase, but there are more unique ways to use your flowers in your Thanksgiving decor.
For a modern and minimalist approach just a couple of flowers arranged in a glass container will give you the wow factor.
Or you could remove the blossoms and arrange them underneath upturned glassware. You could even add some candles or mini pumpkins on top of the glass stems.
Thanksgiving is a feast, so incorporating food into your flower arrangements is a great way to create a decorating theme. You can color-coordinate flowers with different colors of bell peppers cut to hold them like a vase.
Or you could use butternut squash as a vase. I love this look so much that I’m planning using it for my own table. I’ll post a photo of it next week!
If you want a centerpiece that will look fresh for longer than flowers, you could try this arrangement of miniature pumpkins held on candlesticks.
You can also get your kids involved by having them fill vases with layers of dried legumes, fruits, and nuts to act as a colorful candle holder.
How are you decorating your table this year? Share your ideas in the comments, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
