With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about the decorations that will make the house look and feel amazing. Although the centerpiece on the table may seem like a small detail, it is the design element that all of your Thanksgiving guests will see when they come for dinner. Picking the right design is an important part of creating the atmosphere that you want when you are giving thanks for your blessings.
Pumpkins and Flowers
Although pumpkin pie is often associated with the holiday, the idea of using it for other purposes may slip your mind. A ceramic pumpkin makes an excellent vase for your holiday centerpiece. Enjoy a beautiful centerpiece that features a pumpkin, cattails and orange and yellow flowers that will brighten up your table and invite the entire family to enjoy an interesting design feature.
Make it Traditional
The cornucopia is a traditional part of Thanksgiving. Although it is traditional to fill the cornucopia with autumn fruits, squash and other foods, make it interesting by adding beautiful seasonal flowers. Center it on the table and allow the flowers to spill over. It is a reminder to give thanks for the bounty of the season that is beautiful and fun for the entire family.
Add a Little Glitter
Place a simple vase with flowers in the center of the table and then surround it with small metallic candle holders. Place tealight candles and light them up before the guests arrive. The simple orange and yellow flowers add color to the table while the metallic candle holders give it a touch of elegant glitter.
Gather a Crowd
An autumn centerpiece that is a bouquet of fall flowers is a simple way to gather guests. The beautiful flowers invite guests to look at the centerpiece and a few candle give it a romantic glow throughout the Thanksgiving meal.
Thanksgiving is a time to appreciate the blessings that you have in your life. By making arrangements to decorate your home for the season, you can remember the bounty of the season and the love of family.
