DIY Centrepieces For Any Style Of Thanksgiving Gathering

Sebastian Centner helps set the scene with two beautiful and afforable centrepieces

BUFFET – TRADITIONAL – DESSERT CENTERPIECE

 
Here we’re focusing on a Traditional Thanksgiving look in terms of colours and décor.  The idea is to combine items you already have at home with 1 splurge purchase.
  • Use a long, skinny table, perhaps from your entrance/foyer.
  • Cover with a tablecloth, maybe you have a white one or another colour that works for Fall.
  • Splurge purchase: Wood tiered tray.  Fill it with mini desserts only or add a selection of fruit and flowers foradditional décor.
  • Add in a couple cake stands
  • Add leaves from your backyard placed in tall glass vases and scattered around and it’s complete.

CASUAL FAMILY STYLE – ‘HARVEST TABLE’ VEGGIE CENTERPIECE
 
In this case, we’re doing a modern take on a harvest table.  It’s very earthy but the focus is on the food.
  • A black linen really provides a backdrop for the vegetable colours to pop.
  • Grab a low height basket or long wood bowl, or you can even group 2-3 bowls together.
  • After a quick trip to the grocer or even raiding the remains in your refrigerator you have what you need to create a beautiful centerpiece you wanna eat!
  • Here to keep with the theme we also added purple potato placecards that are a cute touch!
