A few Thanksgiving centerpieces to mull over as you plan for the special day… whether your style is muted & soft or blazing with color there are so many brilliant ideas out there to give you inspiration. I’ve collected a few of my favorites from design experts around the web: BHG, Party Perfect Blog, HGTV and Cathie Filian.
Before you begin… choose your theme wisely. Will this holiday be traditional & cozy or modern & eye-catching? Choosing your color palate can be most challenging but incorporating just one ‘wow!’ color can make a huge difference. Bright pastels like orange, pink and green give your table a pop and are all over the place this season.
By the way, isn’t this idea of incorporating photos into a centerpiece runner a neat tribute to family?
Be out of the ordinary. Surprise your guests with unique elements that will make them remember this holiday for years to come. It can be as simple as a painted red branch, as crafty as ribbon wrapped paper lanterns or as unique as veggie candle holders (for those last two ideas, jump on over to the next page).
Where ever your inspiration comes from your guests will surely appreciate the extra effort!
Turn your dinner sides into decoration!
A simple branch fresh with fall leaves can be stunning. Bright colors keep the evening cheery and full of smiles.
Consider height variations down the center of the table — just be sure guests can see each other on the other side! I love the idea of wrapping patterned ribbon around a paper lampshade and adding a stem to make a unique ‘pumpkin’ centerpiece!
