With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we know you want to highlight your holiday table. Making the perfect centerpiece can be easy and fun. Get inspired with Curb Appeal’s Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas!
Flowers are a beautiful way to decorate your table and this holiday is the perfect opportunity to shake things up.
Mix unexpected hues into your flower bouquet to separate the traditional autumn color scheme for eye-catching décor. Add pink, red, olive, and purple flowers for a spectacular arrangement. Include sunflowers for even more texture!
Candles are a classic dinner table centerpiece—just don’t be afraid to let things get nutty sometimes.
Put four or five candles in glass holders down the center of the able. Use unshelled nuts in the holder to keep the candles in place. Chestnuts, walnuts, and almonds get the job done!
Complete the centerpiece by weaving a fall-colored ribbon through the line of candles or even wrapping a ribbon around the bottom of the candle. You and your guests will be satisfied with the cozy, rustic atmosphere at dinner.
With all the colorful food on the table, a bright and neutral centerpiece will stand out.
Use pieces with differing heights for more versatility, and complete the seasonal look with a few white pumpkins. If you want a little more sparkle, don’t forget metallic goes well with neutral shades and glitter is always in for the holidays. Just wrap a gold branch or twine around the white pumpkins and place small, glittered pine-cones next to them on top of a burlap runner. You’ll pull off a centerpiece that is both elegant and modern.
Vintage antiques are great for decorating because of the unique charm they bring along. Placing one on the table for Thanksgiving will go a long way and impress anyone you share the meal with.
You can achieve this with a piece that’s been in the family for generations, or even make your own. Just decorate the outside of a pumpkin by layering paper or fabric (also known as decoupaging). You can also layer with other more contemporary materials to keep things clean and draw attention to your most unique centerpiece ever.
Perhaps the most iconic Thanksgiving symbol is the cornucopia. The horn-shaped container has elements of the Earth’s harvest and was traditionally filled with fruits and grains.
You can take this traditional idea and make it your own by using a cornucopia as your centerpiece. This is a great way to express your creativity and show what a knack you have for decorating. You can have small pumpkins, gourds, fake flowers, fruits, and faux berries spilling out of the cornucopia for a lush autumn centerpiece. Arrange the colors any way you want and even match brighter ones to the tablecloth or napkins.
