We all know family and food are the heart of thanksgiving, but let’s face it, you probably want your table to look great too. The place settings, the table cloth, the accent colors are all things you take into consideration. But the heart of the thanksgiving tablescape is definitely the centerpiece.
Well, luckily, there is lots of room for creativity on thanksgiving! I was originally going to make this post with only one centerpiece, but I had so much fun playing around and coming up with ideas that I had to do four!
So, here are four different thanksgiving centerpieces for four different types of hosts:
1. The Flower Lover
If you just love having fresh flowers in the center of the table, this is the centerpiece for you. It’s more fun than just using a plain vase on the table.
To make this centerpiece, all you have to do is hollow out a pumpkin and stick a vase inside that is appropriately sized to fit inside your pumpkin. You could even do several mini pumpkins with small flowers in them.
There are so many options for beautiful fall flowers, so you really can’t go wrong with this centerpiece.
There’s nothing like the ambiance created by flickering candlelight. It’s romantic and cozy at the same time.
To make this centerpiece, you need to have candles of various heights and sizes. I think it looks nice to intersperse it with different kinds of candle holders and add a little greenery in there- everyone loves succulents!
If you like the look of my vases/ candleholders you can make them yourself– it’s a super easy dollar store craft!
3. The Space Saver
Thanksgiving is primarily about food, and it sure takes up a lot of space on the table! Well, you don’t have to sacrifice cuteness. Just make a small centerpiece!
This centerpiece is made with a wine glass, a jar, and a candle holder. They are filled with acorns, and then have a flower on top. Any kind of large, full flower will work. I’m partial to sunflowers, personally. You can even use a succulent if you’re more into greenery. There’s lots of options!
The key here is to have different heights and widths. That’s what makes it work.
4. A Little Bit of Everything
Sometimes you want to go all out- and this centerpiece certainly does. With beautiful fruits, a cornucopia, flowers, candles, and a pumpkin you can create this lovely centerpiece.
If I had any I definitely would have used more gourds in this centerpiece. It’s really a little of everything. The cornucopia definitely gives it a very thanksgiving-ey feel.
And yes, the fruit was delicious. Just eat your centerpiece for dessert! Honeycrisp apples and pears are so wonderfully decadent and amazing.
