Easy and Simple Centerpiece Ideas for Thanksgiving from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?
A week from today we'll all be busy in the kitchen so why not spend the next few days thinking of how you want your table to look for your family and guests.  One of the things I love the most about Thanksgiving is decorating the table.  I love to create a pretty centerpiece and make everything look beautiful for our celebration.  I put together some easy and simple ideas for all of us to use next week that will help you create a beautiful table for your Thanksgiving celebration.

You may think you don't have enough time to go shopping to find items for your centerpiece, but you're wrong!  Today I'm sharing ideas that are simple for you to create at home and most of these items you can purchase from Amazon.  AND Amazon is great with shipping!

Here is what our table looked like last year.  Last year my husband was so nice about setting up the camera to help me take a ton of photos and then they accidentally got deleted from our camera before I could download them to my computer.  But I do have a few from my phone.  I have had these wooden bookshelves, yes bookshelves, down the center of our table for a few years now.  I love how they define the center so you can create a beautiful centerpiece.

Burlap Runner can be used even on top of a tablecloth if you want to help define the center of your table.  There are so many great ideas available but I do like this burlap one.

Yes, Amazon.  Here's just ONE example I found of really nice wooden boxes you can use for your Thanksgiving centerpiece.  Fill it up with pine cones, mini pumpkins, candles, berries and so many other things that will make your centerpiece stand out this year.

  1. The centerpiece design from Far Above Rubies, was my favorite. I'll keep that one in mind if I ever do Thanksgiving again. Come to think of it, I'd enjoy it even if I was the only one who saw it. Great post!
