Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s truly one of my favorites! Who doesn’t love a holiday centered around a savory meal and a spirit of gratitude? In anticipation I gathered up some lovely ideas to inspire your seasonal centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table.
Fill a horn basket purchased at a craft store with pears, squash, apples, and onions for a festive cornucopia display.
As an alternative to a traditional horn, substitute an antique find such as this galvanized metal scoop to display ripe fruits on seasonal linens.
Your everyday candlesticks and creamware makes perfect perches for pumpkins or gourds – dress them up with real berries gathered from your garden or faux versions purchased at a craft store.
Mix intensely colored floral blooms with leaves and apples on stems for a vibrant and fragrant focal point.
Create a natural table runner down your dining room table with pumpkins in a row embellished with satin ribbon or berry stems.
Wine corks inside a hurricane create easy instant ambiance when coupled with simple votive candles you can light when the sun fades.
Fabric and ribbons layered with leaves, pears, and mini pumpkins make a stunning display when scattered down an autumn table.
A ring of cornhusks layered with a bowl of bountiful fruit brings drama to a table set indoors or out.
A collection of apothecary jars and footed glass vessels make perfect containers for a collection of autumn nuts, pine cones, beans, and ribbons.
Silver compotes are gracious containers for a similar display made up of chestnuts and walnuts.
Glue acorns to a metal or woven basket in celebration of autumn’s bounty and fill with seasonal pears, berries, twigs, or fresh flowers.
Simplicity reigns in a display of orange, burgundy, and green floral sprigs coupled with berries in a collection of clear glass vases gathered on a tray.
A “tree” of thanks made of branches secured in an urn makes a festive centerpiece when decorated with grateful sentiments written on cards by family and friends or with cardstock embellished with leaves of different varieties.
A Thanksgiving table can be an effortless task when the focus remains on combining the vessels you have with seasonal abundance. For even more inspiration, be sure to take a peek at these fall centerpieces and inviting autumn table settings.
