Fall is here which means it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving preparations: food, drinks, the decor and more food. In the decor department, the table centerpiece happens to be my favorite. Thanksgiving is all about gathering around the table sharing food, 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 that’s being 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!
