A beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece makes all the difference for your dinner party, but since Thanksgiving is less than a week away, you need to get these things ready soon! So let’s take a look at some ideas that are super easy to pull off, but will still add charm and magic to your dinner table!
There’s obviously a lot you can do, some centerpieces can be considered works of art in their own right, but we think centerpieces benefit from staying smaller as to avoid calling too much attention to themselves, but also from a practical perspective – big centerpieces will block your guest’s line of sight from the other side of the table!
So what are some centerpiece ideas you can pull off that are beautiful, compact, and practical? Let’s find out!

Fancy lush centerpiece
This luscious elevated centerpiece takes some work, but as I’m sure you can see, the results are worth it!
The flowers used on this piece are as follows:
- Heirloom Chrysanthemums
- Pampas Grass
- Seeded Eucalyptus
- Privet Berries
- Lavender Spray Roses
Then, it’s just a matter of laying them nicely around your centerpiece. These are real plants, so you can cut the stems to make them easier to manage, but they will degrade after a day or so, which means it’s better to set this all up on Thanksgiving day or the night before! You can find the full tutorial here!
Another beautiful idea that doesn’t require crazy expertise, just a handful of materials you can assemble in a few minutes. You can put the candles inside cups or maybe even chandeliers to help keep them a little further away from the twigs.
For this centerpiece you’ll need:
- Seeded eucalyptus
Then, it’s just a matter of assembling it nicely along the center of your table and you’ve got yourself a natural yet beautiful centerpiece!
The flower arrangement is probably the hardest bit here, but since we’ll be using faux plants for the sake of time and easy setup, it shouldn’t be a problem.
You’ll need a faux pumpkin to start with. Cut a hole on top of it and add a piece of styrofoam inside to support the stems. The faux stems are up to you, take this as inspiration and work with what you have to create something unique!
Simple fruit centerpiece
This centerpiece is as simple as setting up some fruits inside a wired bowl. The idea is to make it look like fall in your choices, so pears, berries, and some large leafs will do the trick. If you have some more time, you can even decorate the bowl itself with a few more elements!
Of course you don’t have to copy this exact layout, but by simply using what you have in your backyard, for example, you can already achieve similar results!
Rustic Thanksgiving centerpiece
The flower pots are doing most of the work on this one – you can have them done by Thanksgiving and them just lay them out on the table in small vases.
But there’s a very special detail here as well: that beautiful copper tableware! These are not necessary to complete the look, but definitely something you can try for a special night.
Candles with nuts
Votive candles are great for classy centerpieces, but you can easily get them inside a cup with some nuts for that Fall aesthetic. Easy to make, very little materials required, and will look stunning as a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner!
