Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas

Ah, cornucopias… a classic Thanksgiving centerpiece and symbol representing abundance. If you are thinking of approaching the holiday with a traditional feel, this is the way to go. Most flower shops carry them already made, but you can also make them yourself.  Just buy a woven or iron cornucopia and fill it with your choice of fall flowers, leaves, and berry picks.  You can also make it look more rustic by placing it on an antique silver tray and filling it using gourds, squash, and dried corn. Make sure it looks like it’s overflowing with harvest!

Earth-toned and comfy, candles do a magnificent job in turning any space into a cozy retreat.  This is a great way to welcome your family to the dinner table. You can place a few orange candles on vertical candleholders, and add some autumn flowers to a block of oasis to create an elegant Thanksgiving centerpiece. The flowers can stretch as wide as you want to be proportional to your table. Another idea is buying glass votives in different shapes and sizes, placing white candles inside, and filling the votives with small acorns, dried corn kernels, or whatever you like! Keeping the candles white will allow for contrast between the candles and the filling of your choice.  A simpler way to use candles as a centerpiece is taking a variety of warm colored candles, placing them on a long candle tray, and wrap some berry picks around them.

 

First thing that pops into my head when I think of fall is pumpkins!  They are also a well-known symbol of the fall season and Thanksgiving.  People place pumpkins outside their homes as decoration, and you can also bring them inside as your centerpiece! This is an easy and stress-free way to bring autumn onto your table. Place them on a tray or a basket with different colors and sizes, fill the tray or basket with a few leaves or acorns and you’re done! You can also stack them from biggest to smallest as the main part of the centerpiece and spread the smaller ones around the table with candles. Wrap some pumpkins with dried vine for some extra flair!

 

If you are looking for a unique way to decorate your dinner table this Thanksgiving, Wheat will be sure to spark a conversation during the meal. This is a gorgeous way to add some height to the table.  Just take a bundle of wheat stocks, and wrap them with ribbon and there you have it!  You can have a large one in the middle followed by two smaller ones, or you can have just one in the center with candles spread around.  It is affordable, flexible, quick, and beautiful.
