3 last minute table centerpiece ideas for Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving...
which means family and friends giving thanks
and indulging just a bit.

I am running around like a wild woman wrapping up photos for next week
for the Holiday Housewalk
and getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow
and today I thought I would share a few favorite tables from the past
in case you are looking for some last minute inspiration
for tomorrow.


I tend to keep Thanksgiving tables

Those leftover pumpkins around the house- use them for a centerpiece.
Use eucalyptus, clip branches from your yard or use a pre-made garland if you prefer- and add a few flowers for a romantic touch.


But I do love a little drama as well
and so...

Pinks and greens marching down the center with candles is perfect.
I used double old fashioned glasses as vases for the flowers 
and simply lined the table with fresh cedar clippings.

(and these wood chargers so many of you have asked about 
are on sale this weekend HERE) affiliate

Bold & Beautiful 

Probably my most favorite romantic Thanksgiving table setting...

I am obsessed with the bright flowers, gold and the autumn colored leaves in the background.
Thanksgiving doesn't have to be oranges and browns- it can be whatever you love.
For this table, I gathered up various containers, painted them gold and then filled them with brightly colored peonies and garden roses.

Feeling blue

And coming your way next week... another table
that is a little bit blue...

Place setting holders

And a couple of last minute place setting holder ideas- 

Or various ornaments used in the place settings?

I love ornaments because they are a fun treat for guests to take home 
with them as well.

And for more ideas- I shared 5 easy ideas here

Coming your way -
I will put up Feathered Nest Friday early for those of you who would like to join in
and I will be sharing several amazing sales and finds that I think you will love.
I know I am doing some shopping this weekend.

For those looking for a Balsam Hill tree- they are up to 50% off this weekend- so a great time to buy.
And I rounded up
 10 of my favorite blush must haves this season  coming your way Friday morning...
like these blush beauties... 
I am obsessed. 

Have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving everyone.

  1. Courtney, you make everything look magical. Our table is set, and the centerpiece is a simple Cinderella pumpkin sitting in a grapevine wreathe with touches of bittersweet. Simplicity! I like the idea of using the eucalyptus. I'm making a note of that.
    I was crushing over your blush tree in the recent post. I recognized the gift boxes from the display I'd seen at Target by Sugar Paper. Love their products! The blush wouldn't work with my bold Courtly Check and tartan theme, but they also have craft paper boxes. I grabbed some today to follow your lead in making the tree looks a bit more polished. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and family, Courtney.
    Lovely post !!!

  3. Magical is just the word! It seems as if everyone should wear tulle and tiaras to sit at such tables.

  4. Lovely table settings Courtney! I especially love the rustic table. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Simply beautiful! Love your outdoor table settings ~ lots of inspiration. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
