On Thanksgiving, delicious food is undoubtedly the star of the show… but there’s something magical about a beautifully-set Thanksgiving table. Flowers are the obvious answer, but there are a few reasons why I’m choosing to forgo them this year in favor of more outside-the-box centerpiece ideas.
1. I have a few friends that are florists. They make stunning arrangements. Mine? Not so much.
2. Flowers get really expensive, and I’d rather splurge on the food.
3. It’s more fun and unstuffy to shake things up with something less traditional.
Last Thanksgiving, I had a eucalyptus and rosemary runner with tea lights scattered throughout. This year, I’m getting inspired by the menu and using seasonal produce as table decor! Scroll on to see some of my favorite Thanksgiving centerpieces where flowers are not the main attraction.
