Festive Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Thanksgiving centerpiecesIf you’re like us, you love everything about your Thanksgiving table–the food, the beverages, and especially the family and friends that gather around it.

Your Thanksgiving table deserves a centerpiece that is worthy of this special occasion.

Here are some inexpensive and festive Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas for your dining room table.

Flowers–You can never go wrong with flowers as the centerpiece–from a few loose flowers in  a simple vase to a more elaborate arrangement. Visit Commonwealth Farms to see their gorgeous selection of fresh-cut and dried flowers.

Fresh Herbs–Simple, attractive, and aromatic, fresh herbs are the perfect centerpiece for your table. Arrange fresh bunches of parsley, sage, and rosemary in vases or glass jars to set on the table.

Gourds and Pumpkins–Seasonal, inexpensive, and fun! Choose gourds of different colors or select a monochromatic color scheme. Add a little extra bling with paint and glitter.

Candles–A welcome addition to any table, candles add warmth, light, and ambiance to any setting. Choose from a nearly endless array of colors, shapes, and sizes. Opt for fragrance-free candles that won’t compete with the wonderful food smells.

Nuts–Create a display that is simple, attractive, and edible. Place a variety of nuts in a glass bowl along with nutcrackers so guests can help themselves when they are ready to “sample” the centerpiece.

Branches–Bring the simple beauty of nature indoors. Arrange branches in a tall container. Leave them bare, paint them, wrap them in lights, or hang decorations from them.

Thank-You Notes–Remember what Thanksgiving is all about. Kids and adults alike will appreciate the opportunity to record their thanks. Hang the handmade thank-yous from branches and display in a vase.

Feathers–Use turkey, pheasant, or even synthetic feathers as your Thanksgiving tribute.

Fruits and Vegetables–Fruits and vegetables are naturally colorful and visually appealing. Try displaying cranberries, apples, grapes, citrus, or root vegetables in a large glass or wooden bowl. See Poplar Ridge Farm for a complete list of their Fall produce.
