A Romantic Thanksgiving Centerpiece

This centerpiece creates a warm, loving romantic feel to the room. Its very simple to pull together by using various styles of candles and different heights of candlestick holders to create interest. Notice how the candles are all in the same color of pink | red but in different shades. Green and red eucalyptus leaves are placed throughout the table in different vases, again creating interest. Completing the look are various interestingly shaped gourds in red and greens. One reason this centerpiece is so striking because the components used are complimentary colors on the color wheel, red | pink and green, which always makes a stunning statement when used together. Red | pink and green doesn’t suit your décor? Change the colors that complement your dining room!
Simple AND Elegant Thanksgiving Centerpiece

I’m absolutely in love with this centerpiece created by Karianne from Thistlewood Farms. Its elegant, easy to create, and would be perfect for most dining room decors. You could easily expand this centerpiece to fit a longer table by adding more vases and white pumpkins. You could also add white candles on your table if you like. Look how the fireplace mantel compliments the table décor using eucalyptus, candles and white pumpkins. I’m assuming the wheat stocks that flank either end of the fireplace were purchased. Gorgeous, stunning and easy to do!
Rustic Cottage Thanksgiving Centerpiece
Are you having Thanksgiving at the family cottage this Thanksgiving? Try this gorgeous rustic centerpiece created by Simply2Moms. I love how they have used unusual gourds, combined different shaped vintage bottles, and kept the colors relatively monochromatic with pops of cranberry glass vases for interest. Notice how they used a vintage brick mold to elevate some of the shorter pieces for interest. Don’t you just love those placements? This would be perfect for a large family gathering at the cottage.
Artichoke and Magnolia Thanksgiving Centerpiece
Looking for something earthy? Try this creative artichoke and magnolia centerpiece by Jen of Midwest Life and Style. My mother often used food to decorate her Thanksgiving table so I like how Jen used artichokes as one of the main staples for this centerpiece. It certainly gives the Thanksgiving vibe. This centerpiece would be suitable for most decors. Add various sizes of candles if you have a longer table to decorate. You could also add small pumpkins as well if you wish.

Having a casual Thanksgiving dinner at the cottage? This fun, easy & casual pumpkin vases could be your answer to your decorating dilemma. Depending on the size of your table, you just need to add more pumpkins.

Beautiful Fall Flowers for the Centerpiece or Buffet Table

Running out of time and don’t know what to do? Fresh flowers is always a beautiful look that never grows old. Laura from Inspiration for Moms knocked it out of the park with this gorgeous flower arrangement. Its easy and fast. Laura used mums, roses and baby’s breath for this arrangement.
You can use a vase that will suit your colors or choose something fall related. Be sure to chose flowers that are not to high so that people’s views won’t be blocked when sitting at the dinner table. OR you can always set these beautiful lovies on the buffet table instead. Pick flower colors that compliment your dining room colors, dinnerware etc. Notice the cute white pumpkins as well. If you need a centerpiece a little wider in width, add some white pumpkins beside the vase and along the table. This would be good for the table or for your buffet table if you want something gorgeous over there as well. Be sure to check out her website for more floral inspiration!
Hopefully you are now inspired to create a gorgeous centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner. I know I am!
