Thanksgiving Centerpieces - Ideas for Great Table Decorations

Are you seeking ideas and inspiration for Thanksgiving centerpieces?

The Thanksgiving table is always a wonder to behold. A beautiful crisp turkey, loads of steaming vegetables, lovely little pots of fresh cranberries, and pumpkin pies on each end of the table.

Although the food alone is wonderful to see, the piece de resistance is always the Thanksgiving table centerpiece. From beautiful fall mums to cornucopias of Indian corn and gourds, the Thanksgiving centerpiece is always the icing on the cake for your Thanksgiving table.

Here, we will give you some great ideas for a Thanksgiving table centerpiece.

  • Handpicked Flowers: From simple to extravagant, flowers make a lovely Thanksgiving centerpiece. If you have your own garden, consider picking fresh flowers and wrapping the stems with wide raffia prior to placing in a small amount of water. Adding a small amount of greenery will give your hand picked flowers a nice touch. At this time of year, the colors of your fall flower garden will go nicely with the colors of Thanksgiving.

  • Professional Floral Arrangement: All florists have absolutely beautiful displays in their shops at Thanksgiving. There is something for every budget. If you are invited to someone's home for Thanksgiving dinner, a bouquet is a wonderful hostess gift. Chances are your host will put this directly onto the Thanksgiving table as an added centerpiece. It is a smart thought to purchase flowers in a vase for your hostess. She will be so busy with the dinner, saving her the time to search and fill a vase as well as trim the flowers will be much appreciated.

  • Cornucopia: A typical traditional Thanksgiving centerpiece is a cornucopia. You can fill these great little baskets with an assortment of Indian corn, gourds, mini pumpkins, and even some assorted flowers. If you use silk flowers and fake fruit and vegetables, it is something that can be carefully packed away and reused each year. If you prefer fresh, adding some nice fall fruits such as pomegranates and oranges can also double as an added light dessert option. Simply pass them out once the main dinner has been cleared away for those who can manage to pass on the pumpkin pie.

  • Fall Vegetables: A simple but effective Thanksgiving centerpiece is an assortment of loose fall vegetables. Small pumpkins, assorted gourds, pomegranates, and corn husks can be piled successfully on the table with a few interestingly shaped twigs. Put these on a placemat with coordinating colors in the middle of your table. Or you might prefer to place these in a simple woven basket.

  • Candles: Candles in assorted sizes can be arranged with cranberries, pips, and dried orange slices for lovely Thanksgiving centerpieces. If you prefer to keep your candles in containers, you can place them in large clear glass jars surrounded by hazelnuts, popcorn, or even cranberries.

  • Unique Candle and Flower Holders: Thanksgiving is the chance to use unique items to create unusual, one-of-a-kind centerpieces for your dinner table. Hollowed out artichokes make beautiful candle holders. Wrapping asparagus or green beans with raffia around a thick candle makes very unique candle holders. Small to medium pumpkins that are hollowed out and washed make beautiful flower displays. A small piece of florist foam will hold the flowers firmly in place. White pumpkins can be especially striking.

    These are just a few ideas for wonderful Thanksgiving centerpieces. Use the internet to search for pictures or instructions should you choose to create your centerpiece from scratch. Much will depend on the size of your table, your budget, and don't forget to ensure that your guests don't have an allergy to the type of flowers you plan to use.
