Fall is here which means it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving preparations: food, drinks, decor and more food. In the decor department, the table centerpiece happens to be my favorite. I hope these Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas all with natural elements will inspire you.
Thanksgiving is all about gathering around the table sharing food, and stories, and giving thanks for the people in our lives and all that we have. This is why I like creating a focal spot on the table that can sparkle conversations and create a homey feel. The centerpiece can set the tone for the day and compliment and accent the food served.
I’ve already started my online hunt for inspiration. Quick, easy, natural and inexpensive are the main qualities I’m looking for in a centerpiece. These centerpieces, fresh floral aside, are all long-lasting. There were so many to choose from and below you’ll see my favorite finds. I love seeing that I am not the only centerpiece fanatic searching the internet!
Now, let’s dive into these 12 Thanksgiving centerpieces ideas with natural elements

I’m a life-long gardener who still to this day gets giddy at the thought of a trip to one of the local nurseries. Yes, I actually studied landscape and environmental horticulture and the practical experience I have garnered through the years has served me well. Childhood memories of chicken manure “tea” still float through my olfactory senses to this day. I have always been an organic gardener and always will be. From the Earth … To the Earth. I was born and raised in rural, bucolic Litchfield County, Connecticut and now joyfully live a few blocks from the ocean in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
