35 Wedding Centerpieces to Steal for Your Thanksgiving Table
A beautiful Thanksgiving celebration isn't just a matter of the right food, wine, and company; it's a matter of the overall experience. There's so much that goes into the perfect Thanksgiving feast: friends and family, a festive, fun playlist, Grandma's recipes, and, of course, the perfectly set table. As a host, it can be a lot to take on—especially when you're feeding a crowd. And now we're adding one more very important detail to your holiday to-do list. A gorgeous centerpiece that brings your entire dinner table together.
Your Thanksgiving centerpiece should be a lush and bountiful reflection of the fall season. Luckily, there are as many ways to arrange the perfect fall display as there are things to be thankful for. Take a note from modern day wedding trends and use edible treats, like in-season fruits and veggies, as table décor. If you're feeling something more floral, don't get bogged down by "traditional" autumnal colorways. Moody purples, dusty pinks, and deep reds are all ways to keep florals feeling fresh. Other fall-appropriate details include brass vases, dramatic candelabras, and rustic lanterns, all of which would look lovely on any tablescape.
Here, we've rounded up a vast array of centerpieces you'll want to recreate for years to come. With options for a casual family dinner, fancy feast, and everything in between, there's an arrangement here for any type of Thanksgiving celebration.
