Ideas for Thanksgiving centerpieces have been going around in my mind all week long. Should I use flowers or just some pretty golden leaves? How about pumpkins? Big ones or tiny ones? Should I incorporate other elements such as nuts, twigs or fruit? For me, this year the key word is: Simple. If you're having trouble deciding on a centerpiece, take a look a these easy arrangements and I am sure by the end of this post, you'll have some wonderful ideas!
Can you go more minimalist than this? The tiny white pumpkins look so elegant placed in a long wooden tray and the orange runner beneath adds just the right bit of contrast.
Painting your pumpkins is a fun idea, making them almost look like ceramic pieces. Play with heights, putting them on cake stands and candle holders.
Or just place them in the center of the table along with other accessories like a bird ornament and vases of the same color.
Not into white pumpkins? Spray paint them gold! Or silver... Metallics add the nicest sparkle to the table.
So many things you can do with pumpkins! Hollow them out and use them as a vase. This is one of my favorite centerpiece ideas, which I have used in years past. It always looks amazing!
Candles are a nice alternative. Grouped together like this on a lazy Susan or tray, makes for a simple and warm centerpiece.
For a more stunning arrangement, group thick pillar candles in different sized hurricane vessels and fill them with nuts, seeds or even beads for some sparkle.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! See you on Monday!
