Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

Updated on March 15, 2011

Bittersweet with Candle

This arrangement can easily be made with a tray or foundation. Set the candle in the middle and arrange the bittersweet around it. Bittersweet can be real or artificial.

Table Runner

I like this arrangement with a Thanksgiving table runner, 2 hurricane candles and different colored gourds or pumpkins arranged around the candles.

Use your imagination

Turkey, pumpkins, gourds, chrysanthemums, corn husks, corn shocks, cornstalks, wheat sheaves, field corn, cranberries are some of the things you could use for a tabletop arrangement.


A ceramic turkey flanked with orange candles, stuck into the top of mini-pumpkins is very conducive for a Thanksgiving table centerpiece.


A fruit platter is always appropriate for Thanksgiving. Real fruit is always better-looking than artificial. A cake pedestal could be used or a box covered with a napkin and a plate on top.

Harvest Centerpiece


A beautiful cornucopia with flowers and notice the blue tablecloth that is truly a different color for Thanksgiving, but seems very appropriate.

      Thank you all for the nice comments. I have made versions of all of these, but did not have pictures. These pictures are the closest I could find to my originals.
