You can never go wrong when you choose fall colors for the color scheme of your Thanksgiving centerpiece and any other table decorations you might use. This means deep reds, yellows and oranges: take inspiration from items in nature.
You can also use natural objects such as pine-cones, nuts, pumpkins and autumn leaves to help create the feeling you want for your table.
Simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas
If you want to keep things easy, but still make sure that your Thanksgiving centerpiece looks impressive, then here are a few ideas you might want to use:
* Buy a bouquet of fall flowers from the supermarket and put them into a pretty bowl. You might want to trim them a little to make the arrangement look just right.
* Sometimes the really simple ideas can also be the most eye catching. For example, you could get hold of a large glass jar and fill it with fall fruit.
* Or simply buy a pretty candle holder and candle for your centerpiece idea.
Thanksgiving Centerpiece Crafts For Kids
If you want to get your kids involved in the process of getting ready for Thanksgiving then here are a few craft ideas:
Thanksgiving turkey: There are many ways your kids can put together a turkey-themed centerpiece for Thanksgiving. One idea is to create a tissue paper turkey by arranging different colored paper with pipe cleaners.
Thanksgiving wreath: This is easy to make by cutting outlines of the kids’ hands on colored card and arranging them into a decorative wreath.
Decorative jars: This is an easy one for the kids. Simply get together a nice jar and fill it with dried flowers, or get the kids to create their own flowers out of craft paper.
Fruit turkey: This makes a great centerpiece for the kids’ table, and is one they can make themselves too! The idea is to fashion a turkey out of different fruits. Use a melon for the main body of the turkey and connect other fruit using cocktail sticks. It’s easy but fun to put together!
Name cards and napkin holders: Although these don’t form the centerpiece of the table, kids can create personalized name cards and napkin holders for all of your guests. You could even get them to create the tablecloth by buying a plain one for them to decorate! It adds a very special touch to a family event.
