DIY Thanksgiving Centrepieces

There is nothing quite like Thanksgiving dinner, from the great company of friends and family to the delicious food...what could be better?! If you’re hosting this year’s dinner, grab a glass of wine, take a seat, get comfortable and read through our top picks to make your dinner table the centre of everyone's attention.

Pumpkins, Lots of Pumpkins!

If time isn’t on your side then try this beautiful (and easy!)  centrepiece that is guaranteed to transform your tabletop in no time! Choose a variety of sizes and colours of pumpkins and gourds to fill your tabletop. Really short on time? Don’t think you have to stop by your local pumpkin patch! Chances are your neighbourhood grocer or farmer’s market will have a variety of pumpkins to choose from. Check out the full tutorial on this quick and easy centrepiece idea over at Country Living.

Shine Bright

Add a little mood lighting to your dinner table with this vintage rusty lantern centrepiece. Impress your friends and family as you eat delicious food and sip wine long into the night, all under the serenity of candlelight. Really want to take this idea to the next level? Incorporate some pumpkins or gourds into this look as well.

Pumpkin Carving

Unlike Halloween, this pumpkin won’t have a face on it. Instead, this great idea turns a regular pumpkin into a stunning vase to hold your favourite flowers. It’s common to see flowers take the stage on tables, but throwing a pumpkin into the mix adds that extra bit of fall-flare that we all love. Fill your new vase with any flower that compliments the rest of your table variety, and you’re set!

Apple of our Eye

Little Green Notebook has a very cost effective and creative idea for converting some apples into a one of a kind seasonal candle holder. This is such an easy DIY that you can take your family to your local apple orchard in the morning to pick the apples straight from the tree before getting your hands dirty and creating a masterpiece just in time
for dinner!
