The Final Touch for Your Thanksgiving Table: A Holiday Centerpiece
Thanksgiving is a holiday to gather in unity. If you’re a holiday host, though, Thanksgiving dinner can be a festival of stress.
The table has to look just right. It has to be inviting … perfectly set … everyone in the right place … and with some reminder that this is a day to be thankful you’re pulling your hair out.
Amid menu planning, ironing linens and polishing silver, deciding how to provide a flourish of holiday color and glow can sometimes be put off … or forgotten altogether.
Save yourself the work (and stress). Be proactive this year. The right holiday centerpiece, filled with the color of fall which will finish off any Turkey dinner setting.
Which centerpiece is right for your holiday celebration?
First, face your space. Centerpieces have different configurations. Is the table longer (for a large group), round (smaller group) or even a kids table? Will diners be seated on all sides, or is the table against a wall? Your centerpiece setting matters – in a big way.
The centerpiece will take up room. How much can you afford, amid the many plates and serving dishes? One option is to set dishes on the evergreens (they won’t hurt it). Another is elevating the centerpiece with risers, creating space beneath.
Most people avoid tall centerpieces, which can block eye contact or interfere with passing dishes. Candles provide vertical visual interest.
A Thanksgiving floral arrangement is the finishing touch to your ideal Harvest table. Don’t leave it to the last minute, though.
