A beautiful Thanksgiving table has many things: food, chinaware, table linens, and, of course, a Thanksgiving centerpiece. The centerpiece will be one of the most obvious part of your Thanksgiving table (second only to the food, of course), so you want to make sure it’s perfect. If you’re still deciding on what kind of centerpiece to get, here are some Thanksgiving flower arrangement tips to get you started:
Get some inspiration
If you’re truly lost, the best thing to do is to find some inspiration. Pinterest boards are a great place to find some ideas for your Thanksgiving centerpiece. You can also talk to your local florist for an expert opinion.
Have a color scheme
Deciding on a color scheme for your Thanksgiving décor will help you narrow down on the flower possibilities for your centerpiece. Having a color scheme will also help to ensure that your centerpiece goes with the table linens and chinaware you have laid out on your table.
Think about texture
In order to make your Thanksgiving centerpiece truly stand out, you’ll want to pay attention to the textures you’re using. Try to mix and match your textures, pairing flowers together that you normally wouldn’t in order to create a truly unique arrangement.
Add a seasonal touch
Thanksgiving is all about food, so feel free to throw in some cinnamon sticks or plastic fruit to give your centerpiece a seasonal touch.
Keep your flowers short
Your Thanksgiving centerpiece should grab people’s attention, but you don’t want it to be the only thing they see. People like to talk to one another as they’re sitting at the table, and this will be difficult if there’s a tall centerpiece in the way. In that respect, keep the flowers for your centerpiece short so people can look over them.
