As you start preparing for your Thanksgiving gathering, there are a lot of things you have to do. Whether you’re hosting the event yourself or you are visiting a friend, family member or neighbor for the holiday, you may find yourself in need of a Thanksgiving centerpiece. If this is the case, here are a few ideas that may help you decide on the perfect table décor for your gathering.
- Cornucopias – The traditional Thanksgiving centerpiece is probably the cornucopia. Also known as the “horn of plenty”, this is a beautiful display, which can include vegetables, fruits, flowers and other decorative elements.
- Pumpkin Theme – Another traditional Thanksgiving centerpiece is the pumpkin. Whether alone or with flowers, leaves and other elements, the pumpkin makes a natural centerpiece. Pumpkins can be natural or whimsical depending on how the display is put together and what additional items are included.
- Fruit Basket – A basket of fruit is a highly practical centerpiece for Thanksgiving. Not only will it make a beautiful display that will stun all your guests, but it is full of delicious fruit that may be enjoyed on the big day or with the Thanksgiving leftovers.
- Thanksgiving Floral – While there is no standard “Thanksgiving flower,” there are certain flowers that make an excellent choice in a Thanksgiving display. Sunflowers with their yellow and brown shades as well as chrysanthemums, daisies and poppies are very popular. Fall leaves and foliage are often used as filler—giving a floral display a fall or Thanksgiving look.
