Ideas for Your Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece
Between Naps on the Porch
In a few short weeks, family and friends will gather around the dinner table for this wonderful season of Thanksgiving. It's a special time...a time for sharing our blessings with those we love. Do you have a special centerpiece in mind this year for your Thanksgiving table? If not, here's a bit of inspiration to get you going.
Shhh, he thinks he's a turkey...let's not tell him otherwise. Isn't he stunning in the midst of this beautiful centerpiece that's just bursting with rich, fall color?
Here's a better view of the rest of this arrangement. I'm often asked if it's ok to use a tall centerpiece in a table setting. The answer is, yes. Tall centerpieces can be very beautiful and dramatic. Just take a second and remove it to the sideboard or another location right before everyone sits down to dinner.
Don't forget about the buffet...it could use a little dressing up for the big day, too. This arrangement would also work well as a centerpiece for the table.
Do you have a table that you're just not thrilled with? Paint it black and then add a wonderful design of your choosing. This hand-painted table would be so perfect for a Thanksgiving feast.
Tiered baskets accented with fall foliage underneath would make a lovely centerpiece.
If you'd like to keep your centerpiece simple, a display of pumpkins, acorns and a pretty lantern will do nicely. The quilt would work beautifully as a tablecloth.
Here's an easy centerpiece to make. Cut some unique or interestingly shaped branches and spray paint them any color you like.
Pine cones work well as holders for the place cards.
A beautiful tureen always makes for a wonderful Thanksgiving table centerpiece, especially if it's sporting a pheasant.
Don't forget the candlelight! Candlelight creates magic at any table setting. For added interest, use candle holders of different heights. These would look great in the center of a Thanksgiving feast.
If it will just be the two of you for Thanksgiving, make it feel extra special by dining fireside. Add in a few favorite collectibles and some wonderful old leather-bound books for a centerpiece as warm and inviting as the crackling sounds of the fire.
