Pass the Pumpkins: Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas

Thanksgiving is only weeks away. By now, you know who to expect (hopefully) and how much food you’ll need to start buying here and there. But, have you figured out your tablescape yet? If you haven’t, you better start with the centerpieces first. Will you need fresh flowers, pumpkins or maybe even some miniature gourds to fill the middle of your giant family dining room piece? Let’s take a look at some ideas!

1. Small Fills.

Grab some small, leftover pumpkins from around the house decor and clean them out. Then, stuff them with fall flowers and fillers for a simple centerpiece that works! We love mums and taper candles together.

2. Light Romance.

The golden glow, the candlelight and the small pear at each place setting. This is a sophisticated, beautiful way to dress the Thanksgiving table, especially if it’s just for the two of you!

3. Modern Whites.

You don’t have to go with the usual fall colors. If you want something more modern and sleek, adorn Thanksgiving dinner with a landscape of white.

4. Little Crafts.

Decoupage some mini pumpkins, or paint some fresh ones from the supermarket. Then, sprinkle them around the table for a light centerpiece.

5. Low Edginess.

We love this small cluster of acorns, pumpkins and dim candles. The muted colors give a youthful, edgy style to a sometimes overly traditionally decorated day.

Brighten up the table with fresh pumpkins, artichokes and gourds! Then add bouts of cranberries for a vivacious, playful table design.

7. Bowl Full.

You can always grab a bowl and fill it up with textural, fall-inspired goodie. This is an easy, simple way to create a centerpiece. Throw in some pine cones, pumpkins, leaves and maybe even some nuts!

8. Flower Heights.

We love the mixture of highs and lows in this centerpiece. But, we also love the incorporation of creamy, fresh flowers! The greenery brightens up the table but the muted browns keep everything mellow and fall-inspired.

9. Tree Like.

Why not go a bit outside-the-box and create a tree reminiscent of the beautiful, bare ones outside your front door? It’s artsy and unique. But, it’s not too hard to put together either.

10. Cranberry Coverd.

Don’t forget the power of cranberries when creating your centerpiece. The berries themselves not only have a great color but are super versatile as fillers or even as some confetti for the table.
