Easy Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Easy Thanksgiving Centerpieces

I enjoy creating centerpieces & tablescapes. We have 2 piece in our living room that are perfect for a tablescape. What’s the difference between a centerpiece & tablescape? Well IMHO, a centerpiece is a single arrangement of flowers or other floral decoration. It may have 2-3 other pieces to go with it but the placement of this arrangement is the center of the table. A tablescape has multiple elements that can spread along the entire table. While this may seem more difficult to create, I find it’s actually easier. Instead of all the emphasis being on the one piece, bits of colors & decor spread out across your table.  It can be very expensive to purchase a pre-made centerpiece for you Thanksgiving (or any other) table. A tablescape should use small pieces that simple add a splash of color to your table. In the photo above, the pears & small pumpkins can be used all along the table. I would call the table decoration in the photo a tablescape.

Whatever you call it, it can be easy & fun. Simple add bits & pieces to the bare spots in your table, step back & fill in where you see the need. To help you get started, Midwest Living offers a selection of easy centerpieces for your Thanksgiving table. Now, relax & have fun with it!
