Quick & Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece


Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday, but if you’re the party host, let’s face it… between all the cleaning, cooking, decorating, and hostessing, it can also be a stressful time!

Chances are good that you’ll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen already, so let’s try to keep things simple when it comes to the decor. Below is a quick and easy centerpiece idea that won’t take you more than a few minutes to whip together. It will require the use of a 3-tier serving dish, but this is the type of piece that you’ll be able to use over and over again for both food and decorative purposes, so it’s a great thing to have on hand for the future too!


Modern Harvest Centerpiece

You’ll Need:

• 3-Tier Serving Dish (Pictured here:  3-Tier Pastry Dish by Target Home)
• Decorative pumpkins & gourds in various colors
• Matching flower blooms
• Clear floral tubes (optional)

Arrange the decorative gourds onto each level of the 3-tier server. In the example above, we used shades of yellow, orange, and plum for a rich, autumn feel.

Tuck a few large flower blooms into each level of gourds right before the party starts. For a longer-lasting centerpiece, first insert the flowers into small floral tubes filled with water.

Place on the table… and done!  Now you can get back to tending that turkey in the oven! =)
