Thanksgiving will be here before you know it—we’re definitely not the only ones counting the days, right? For those hosting this year, settling on a centerpiece may register as an afterthought. While some may be guilty of resorting to displaying the inevitable florals guests will bring, we’d highly recommend making one ahead of the day. After all, a centerpiece is a crucial part of any tablescape. We rounded up a few of our favorite looks—this ombre-floral lineup, included—which incorporate a wide range of elements (read: not only flowers) to inspire you to think a little outside of the box this holiday season. Read on to discover the centerpiece ideas we’re loving right now.
We’re all for utilizing the broad spectrum of hues the season has to offer, obviously, in the form of vibrant florals. Toss all conceptions of typical tonal pairings aside and mix and match to your heart’s content. Intimidated by the idea? Opt for smaller clusters, set in a line down the table, in lieu of the usual grand centerpiece.
Gather a cluster of pumpkins and gourds – go for a muted palette of greens and grays, intermixed with ivory or cream – in a shallow wire basket or tray on a bed of moss, to complement an otherwise modern setup.
