Inspiring DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces
Pumpkin and Candle Alternates
This idea can be done super cheap by visiting your dollar store and picking up some faux leaves and white candles. Grab one of your unused white serving platters and then place your unused Halloween pumpkins alternating with the white candles.
Cool Toned Neutrals As DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces
If you’re into that classy cool toned look, then be sure to incorporate some feminine nature touches.
As long as you don’t mind possibly blocking your view of some of the guests (can sometimes be a good thing for large groups) then try building up!
If you do want to see all of your guests, then this centerpiece is pretty low profile. You can even see the little kids! Plus, this is my favorite because it looks so vibrant and natural.
Here is another great option if you want a soft palette of natural colors.
Apple in a Pot
Honestly, I would use this in several areas of my home and not just as a centerpiece, because I love candles and the ambiance that comes with them.
For a chic and hip Thanksgiving for friends who are coming to see your new apartment or house, this is sure to impress.
Make it easier on people by showing them in a creative way exactly where they are supposed to be sitting.
Apples & Candles
The water, glass and candles are such an incredible mix. I love the way the flame flickers off of the glass and then onto the lush red apples.
If you want some added scent to your table, then use real eucalyptus.
This centerpiece idea is perfect for anyone who has a farmhouse style home.
Metallic Orange and Reds
Liven up the party with a centerpiece that looks like fire!
Small Pumpkins and Long Candles
Sometimes simple can be the best route to take. All your really need here are some candles and pumpkins.
If you’re worried about going too over the top and you want one solid piece, then this is definitely the way to go. Put a lot of time into making this stand alone piece quality, because it’ll pay off for sure!
This idea is really cool to me! Make sure to not keep the pumpkins submerged for too long though, because they will get gross!
Pumpkin Candle Holder
The soft orange and green mixed with the white is just too adorable!
Mini Succulent Pumpkins
If you’re looking to do a minimalist styled decor, then this idea is simple and perfect.
Orange Mini Succulent
Live pumpkins can really make a world of difference in cases like this, because they’re easy to work with; and the authenticity shines through.
Orange & White Contrast
What makes this setup work is consistency. I love how the bright orange and white contrasts so beautifully throughout the whole table.
With inspiring centerpieces like these to go off of, Thanksgiving should really be no sweat or worry because most of decor is the centerpiece!
