Fall flower arrangements are always a great choice, and the one above took my breath away. Several of the fall centerpiece ideas come from Slow Flowers, which is an online directory to support American flowers and the people who grow them. There’s also a book and podcast by the same name.

When you visit Slow Flowers online, you can search for local florists along with floral classes, u-pick flower farms, and more. I’d never heard of this resource until I started searching for fall centerpiece ideas.

You don’t have to limit your table setting to a floral centerpiece. Pumpkins and gourds are an easy way to decorate your table (because pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween). Toss in a couple other elements like berries, antlers, and candles for added interest.

I saw this white pumpkin and bittersweet centerpiece years ago and created my own version of grapevine wreath-wrapped pumpkins.

Group gourds, fruit, wheat or other grass stalks, and candles for a warm and cozy organic centerpiece.

Small candles in mason jars are always pretty and easy to display. Add height to the fall centerpiece with a wood slice or even a cake stand. Soften the arrangement with greenery or branches from your garden.

If you prefer a more elegant look, hurricane candles make an impressive statement, especially when paired with larger leaf greens such as magnolia branches.

Consider a simpler fall centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table with a couple of colorful branches tucked in favorite vases.

Place a glass vase (like a mason jar) inside a small burlap sack for country charm. The lantern adds warmth while acorns, pine cones, and greens add texture. Super easy to put together and it’s so charming!

Just yesterday I decided to host Thanksgiving at my house again. I love to cook and I love setting a pretty table – it’s just that last minute rush of pulling everything together to get all the food dishes on the table at the same time. I’m sure you can relate!

  1. Love the ideas and i needed some help, i have cooked every year since my mom died , a few time we have gone out to eat and once i took all my family to a cabin in the woods and we ate at the Lodge.

  2. All these were lovely but I had always heard that when doing a tablescape you should always do things at a lower level so that your guests may see one another and be able to have the conversation flow easily. Number 1 while absolutely beautiful it took up all the table and you would not be able to see the person across from you. Something like this I would put on my buffet behind or even in my living room on a coffee table etc. The pumpkin centerpieces made so much more sense as they were lower and everyone could see each other. I did think these centerpieces were beautiful though.
