Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I have an easy and casual centerpiece that you can put together for your table at the last-minute with items from the grocery store!
I assembled a harvest centerpiece for Thanksgiving using a rustic wooden box / caddy that I had. You can use any kind of wooden box, crate, basket or tray to build your centerpiece. You can find some inspiration for creating easy tray centerpieces, here.
I started with some kale which is affordable at 99 cents for a large bunch. Kale makes a great filler to soften and tuck in around edges of your container and provide a base for your arrangement.
Start with some veggies, mini pumpkins and/or gourds and flowers that you can harvest from the grocery store.
I placed water in jars (or you can use glasses) to add some $3 mums from the grocery store in the arrangement.
Artichokes provide some texture and green color to pair with gourds and mini pumpkins.
Our maple tree peaked this past week. I’ve been saving leaves in a zip top bag in the refrigerator to preserve their color and keep them fresh for Thanksgiving.
The leaves will stay fresh a week or longer in sealed bag in the refrigerator.
You can use squash, pomegranates, apples, pears, persimmons or whatever says “harvest” to you, along with the flowers of your choice to build your centerpiece.
If you’re looking for more inspiration your Thanksgiving table, you can find a quick and easy centerpiece with a natural leaf and pumpkin runner, here.
Wishing you a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving with all the turkey you can gobble!
