Need some Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas? I crafted simple mini wreaths over at Or So She Says that I’ll be using for our Thanksgiving table. Head over there to see the tutorial using flowers and greenery from the market. UPDATE: I have now updated this post with the full tutorial below:
The classic Thanksgiving table uses colors of orange, red, yellow and browns for centerpiece decorations. Take a new approach to your Thanksgiving table and pair modern colors with traditional table settings. See how I created a sophisticated Thanksgiving wreath centerpiece with a color palate that complements my existing decor.
I really feel that your table setting should work for you, for your style and even for your room color scheme. I have a lot of blues and grays in my dining room, so I am naturally drawn to those colors. One way to bring your color scheme in is by creating wreath centerpieces with flowers, berries and leaves. You may have seen wreath centerpiece ideas on wedding tables, but why not do it for your Thanksgiving table?
Use any remaining flowers and create tiny arrangements to mingle through your centerpiece. I made three wreaths for my table, but add more if you feel the need. Now you can get creative with these wreaths! Add a candle in the middle or a pumpkin (like I did). Or buy different sizes and stack them in a pyramid style. Place a vase or glass cylinder…just a few different ideas.
Your Thanksgiving table will be the first impression, so grab your guests’ attention with this simple but pretty craft. Another fun idea is to showcase your Thanksgiving menu by writing it on brown kraft paper. Write the name of each dish with a marker, then thread twine through the paper tube and hang on a picture hook.
Don’t forget to add your table cover or place mats, place cards and napkins. Get creative this Thanksgiving. You can see more Thanksgiving ideas over on my blog.
