When it comes to decorating my house for fall and the holidays, I always have really high aspirations of tackling a ton of Pinterest crafts— that is until I remember how impatient I am and how poorly my Pinterest crafts usually turn out. In fact, I would venture to say that the majority of the DIY’s and crafts you see on Pinterest actually require you to have expert-level crafting skills and in the end, you are usually left with something that does not at all resemble the original piece you were going after.
That’s why when it comes to Thanksgiving table decor, I’m keeping things simple this year so I can focus on enjoying the season instead of wanting to rip my hair out while I bedazzle a pumpkin with glitter. Whether you are looking for a fall-inspired centerpiece you can leave up until the Christmas season or you’re looking for the perfect easy-to-achieve Thanksgiving tablescape, there are plenty of ways you can put together a table setting or centerpiece that makes a statement without spending a ton of money, effort glitter or hot glue.
9 Simple Thanksgiving Centerpieces You Can Actually Pull Off:
Who knew a pile of pumpkins could be so pretty?? This would be really easy to recreate to match any color scheme, too!
Let the natural color of the pumpkins take centerstage by pairing them with soft candles and a burlap table runner.
Less = more! This clean, simple centerpiece makes a statement, but blends into the space at the same time. Plus, it leaves plenty of room for an abundance of food to fill up the table. Win-win!
I never would’ve thought to use apples as a centerpiece decor item, but I’m kind of obsessed with this!
Pumpkins + Pinecones + Cotton Blossoms = Perfection
Pops of color don’t have to be dramatic! I love the muted tones of these blue and green pumpkins paired with some gorgeous metal and glass lanterns.
If you have really pretty china or place settings, you should let them do the talking!
You literally can’t mess this one up!
Eucalyptus is popping up everywhere this season, and I don’t hate it one bit! Lay some Eucalyptus on a white tablecloth, then get a whicker or pine needle basket you can fill with small pumpkins, gourds, or pinecones!
