The tradition of decorating the table with fresh-cut floral centrepieces for big celebratory feasts has endured for centuries! There’s an unmatched beauty to floral arrangements, so they should be your go-to for making special occasions feel that much more special.
If you’re looking for a little creative inspiration for this season’s Thanksgiving centrepiece, come see our floral studio! Here are some stylish fall arrangements we can help you put together.
We love the idea of a themed centrepiece featuring our favourite ornamental and edible fall plants. Thanksgiving is the season of celebrating the harvest, after all! Wheat sheaves make a perfect decorative accent for adding texture, with a homey, country cottage feel that’s warm and inviting. Arrange some wheat sheaves with an assortment of these fall season flowers:
- Fall foliage
- Ornamental tufted grasses
- Twigs with berries
Add an assortment of tiny pumpkins or ornamental gourds into the mix, piling them around your flower arrangement to create the perfect autumn bounty display.
Still Life Luxe
For a Thanksgiving tablescape that looks straight out of an oil painting, create a centrepiece using large, lush flowers with layers of ruffled petals. Roses and peonies will look absolutely breathtaking! Don’t feel like you have to stick to the traditional fall colours””a hint of delicate pink can really soften those intense oranges and reds. Mix in some eucalyptus branches and display them in a shiny gold container. Little accents, like tiny fruits, painted gold will add a little extra touch of luxury.
Deep, smoky, and muted tones like chocolate brown, maroon, burnt orange, apricot cream, and silvery-green look surprisingly elegant when paired together. Instead of blazing, ultra-saturated colours, the understated visual impact of this antique-inspired arrangement feels rustic yet fresh. Here are a few suggestions for this Thanksgiving centrepiece:
- Lotus seed pods
- Twigs with berries
- Assorted foliage plants in muted colours
Arrange them together in a pumpkin planter or find an antique metal container with a patina finish to emulate that vintage aesthetic.
Here’s a Thanksgiving arrangement that is pure joy and optimism, beaming with sunny golden tones that light up the scenery. Stick to yellow and orange flowers, then add some decorative accents like fresh fruit and cute fall veggies to capture the Thanksgiving spirit. These festive flowers and plants will bring the golden hour vibes all through the Thanksgiving season:
- Black-eyed Susan’s
- Assorted foliage plants
For a look that’s traditional yet timeless, use a woven wicker basket to hold your arrangement of fruit, flowers, and harvest veggies, and play around with burlap fabric accents.
Jewel Toned Beauty
Fall fashion is all about the jewel tones, and we want to bring that high-impact style to the Thanksgiving table with an opulent fall centrepiece. Choose flowers in crystalline colours like ruby red, amethyst purple, amber, and topaz, with vibrant emerald green foliage plants. These are our favourite picks available in jewel-toned shades:
- Spider mums
- Fern fronds
Arrange them in a metallic container””gold, silver, or rose gold””to really bring the glitz.
