Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas
This stress-free Thanksgiving centerpiece makes a statement on a sage green table runner.
Simply tuck pears, nuts, and fresh or preserved leaves in a large wire basket for an updated take on the cornucopia.
Tip: A great part of this display is its portability — simply lift and set elsewhere to make way for the Thanksgiving feast.
A light palette of soft gray, cream, and shades of yellow updates a classic cornucopia.
Dress up a crafts-store horn of plenty basket by whitewashing it with pickling stain and trimming the opening with a strip of cotton fabric tied on with embroidery floss.
Line the inside with cream burlap and fill with squash, apples, pears, quince, and cipollini onions.
Tip: Set the cornucopia on a platter so you can move it easily to make room for the turkey.
Put acorns to use with this nutty basket. Hot-glue acorns (with and without caps) to a woven basket.
When dry, line the basket with plastic or foil, and place florist’s foam inside.
Add five or six not-too-ripe pears using shish kabob spears to keep them in place. (Unripened pears generally keep for a week or more.)
Fill with bold dahlia blooms and sprigs of crabapple, bittersweet, mountain ash berries, or any other fall foliage.
Editor’s Tip: If the basket is a bright color, first paint it dark brown to blend with the nuts. Keep extra acorns on hand in case any fall off.
For a fresh-from-the-pumpkin-patch table runner, arrange a line of miniature pumpkins or gourds in the center of the table and weave double-faced ribbon around them.
Top with a bittersweet stem for a blaze of color.
Vegetables are good for more than just eating at your Thanksgiving meal; use an apple corer or knife to carve holes in sturdy vegetables.
Place candles of different heights in each vegetable, light, and “serve.”
Simple votive holders are transformed into beauty when fiery leaves are casually tied around them with string or twine.
