I have yet to host a family Thanksgiving celebration; however, I have been nominated to design turkey day centerpieces. So, each and every Thanksgiving, I attempt to create unique, yet economical autumn displays. Here are some of the homemade Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas I have utilized throughout the years:
Place a small red wagon at the center of your dining table and generously fill it up with small pumpkins and gourds. You can also weave in some silk green ivy or gold and burgundy leaves.
Search those closets for a jumbo wicker basket. String silk ivy garland around the handle and once again, fill up your centerpiece with miniature pumpkins and gourds. Flank the basket with burgundy candles for a homespun creation.
Gather up a cluster of medium sized pumpkins. With a sharp knife or a small saw, cut off the stems of each one leaving a level surface. Place a tea light candle atop each pumpkin for a dazzling fall presentation and a super easy Thanksgiving centerpiece.
You can also use a grouping of medium sized pumpkins wrapped in green ivy garland and then resting on a bed of silk autumn hued leaves, for a simple, yet elegant homemade Thanksgiving centerpiece.
For another super simple, yet festive, Thanksgiving Day centerpiece idea, pour mini pumpkins and pine cones into a chunky, clear vase or a large crystal bowl.
And for an edible table display, fill a bulky basket with plump red and green apples. Toss in some tasty nuts for a delicious Thanksgiving arrangement.
Speaking of edible centerpieces, consider a charming cupcake tree dripping with delectable turkey treats. Using fudge striped cookies and vanilla frosting as glue; you can easily construct these adorable snacks. Attach a square caramel and a piece of candy corn onto the cookie to create a turkey body and beak. Then, adhere the cookie onto two pieces of Brach’s chocolate candy stars for a darling centerpiece treat.
Vibrant silk mums in yellow, gold, purple and maroon make for a spectacular Thanksgiving centerpiece. Place an array of colored mums in several short vases along your table. Or stuff a heap of bright mums into a basket to bring life to any dining table. You can usually find silk mums at Michael’s craft stores, Hobby Lobby or even sometimes at your local dollar store.
For yet another easy and fabulous homemade Thanksgiving centerpiece, dress your table with a collection of stocky autumn hued pillared candles. Surround the candles with silk ivy, leaves and pine cones. Be sure to purchase unscented or very lightly scented pillars so that the candles don’t compete with your Thanksgiving meal.
