Simple Thanksgiving Centerpieces

modern table and harvest Thanksgiving centerpieces

Glass vases with simple shapes aren’t just for flowers – they’re vessels for centerpieces that don’t require a lot of prep work or steps to create. If you find yourself pressed for time on Thanksgiving day, try one of these easy ideas that can be thrown together in minutes.

For a contemporary feel, uses multiple vases of the same height and shape. This modern table setting from Martha Stewart proves that simple and uncomplicated centerpieces are often better. Soft grey linens are unexpected for a harvest table, allowing the autumn leaves in glass cylinders to provide colourful contrast.

Thanksgiving Fruits and Nuts Centerpieces

If you like things a little more eclectic, try vases in varying heights and shapes for interest, but keep the contents consistent to unify the grouping. Natural items such as nuts, cranberries or dried fruit add a punch of seasonal colour and – unlike flowers – will last long enough to take your tabletop all the way to Christmas.
