Getting the family together is always a celebration, especially around the holiday season. Thanksgiving kicks off our holiday festivities and it’s nice to have everyone over for a big meal. What is the main attraction for your Thanksgiving – is it your mouthwatering recipes, your fun and unique traditions, or is it your Thanksgiving décor and centerpieces?
You will certainly have a feast for you meal; we would like to suggest a feast for your eyes. You can really impress the family with a creative statement centerpiece for the table!
You could do something very traditional by stuffing a cornucopia with seasonal fruits and veggies, or use flowers. If you want more of a modern setting, filling tall glass vases with decorative items is popular. Take the tall vase and fill it with autumn items such as acorns, leaves, pine cones, or cranberries.
Adding a candlelight will set a relaxed mood too! Just don’t use scented candles, it conflicts with all of the aromas in the foods on the table and in the kitchen.
If you are using pumpkins as a focal point, think about adorning it with lace, or by painting it with unusual colors you can really embellish it to make it more atypical! Branches have become very popular in décor, even replacing the use of flowers! Go outside and find several branches to spray paint and display in the center of your table or use them as-is!
There are plenty of fun ways to create an incredible centerpiece year after year that will ‘wow’ your family! Please share with us some of your ideas!
