Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces Ideas
Can’t you just smell the turkey roasting? And hear the kids laughing over the dinner table? This Thanksgiving decorate your table to reflect the warmth and good times of bringing the family together with one of these wonderful Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces ideas. We’ll be premiering our table centerpiece shortly. Till then, you can marvel at the Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces we’ve gathered.
Corn Thanksgiving Centerpiece
From Thoughtfully Simple, this corn Thanksgiving Centerpiece is easy to replicate. All you need is some corn (find some at your grocery store), twine, and a large candle. I would make this piece the large piece in the middle and surround the candle with mini candles. You can even tie hay around the mini candles to tie the whole piece together.
Acorn filled Cylinders for a Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece
This design from Celebrations at Home is very easy to mimic. Just gather long and narrow cylinders (you must likely have a few lying around or you can even use vases), fill with lentils, acorns, squash, pinecones, or any other “fall” natural element. Add a pumpkin to the top and you’re finished. In my opinion, you don’t really need the middle tray piece shown in the picture. I would just use tons of clear cylinders at different sizes. You can replace the white burlap with regular burlap, whichever is easiest to find.
Cranberry Filled Cups for Thanksgiving
From the Yellow Capecod, this masterful centerpiece is charming! Pull out those goblets from your kitchen cabinets, add fill each one with cranberries and water. Then top off the look with fresh flowers. This charming decor is relatively cheap to make and includes our favorite – ribbon! Add ribbon on the bottom of your design to act as a table runner with the perfect touch.
Turkey Statue Thanksgiving Centerpiece
This design from DigsDigs might be hard to replicate if you are missing the key ingredient – a turkey statue! What you could do is find a cheap turkey adornment or adornments (mini turkeys), spray paint them gold or chocolate brown to get this rich look. Add pine cones and bronze-painted acorns for a luxurious look.
DIY Turkey Centerpiece
A turkey can be made with the help of your little rugrats and their vast creativity. One Charming Party shows how to make a paper turkey filled with popcorn for the kids’ table at Thanksgiving. Disney demonstrates how you can make a healthy turkey that you can also place as the centerpiece for the kids table – just make a turkey out of a cantaloupe, peppers for feet, pear for head, raisins for eyes, grapes and sliced fruit for feathers. You can mix and match the fruit for different effects. The Orlando Sentinel also offers a unique design of Styrofoam balls wrapped in colored yarn then have the kids write what they are thankful for on paper feathers, attach, and add this cute turkey to the table. I cannot even began to go into how to make Martha Stewart‘s Veggie Turkey Centerpiece, so go to her site to learn how to make it. And good luck!
Give Thanks Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece
Just the simple words of “Give Thanks” can go along way! Remind your guests why you have all gathered around the table with these “Give Thanks” table centerpieces that are adorable reminders of why we are celebrating Thanksgiving. The first one is from Hostess with the Mostess and features a rectangular vase painted white, a yellow ribbon band, river rocks, and miniature pumpkins. Make the sigh using chipboard letters. Parents has a wonderful give thanks centerpiece that the kids can help out with. Just fill tall drinking glasses with beans, lentils, or split peas, and then place colored sticks with the letters to spell out “Give Thanks.” How about just “Thanks”? Naptime Decorater has a wonderful tutorial on how to add the letters onto glass containers.
