10 easy long lasting Thanksgiving centerpieces

I love Thanksgiving it is my favorite holiday. What’s not to love about a holiday that celebrates family, cooking and decorating!

What can you do now to get ready for Thanksgiving? Cook, clean and set the table? Seems a bit early for that but you can make your centerpiece. Here are some of my favorite ideas. Which one do you like best?

#1 Orchids are by far my favorite way to decorate for the holidays as they last forever! Here I used moss, herbs, succulents, orchids and curly willow. Trader Joes has these orchids for $10-$20 each and they last for months.

#2 If you want to add glam to your table these Pottery Barn pumpkins are wonderful and can be used every year!

#3 Arrangements of Vegetables and Greens: Kale, Artichokes and Squash are great & last for weeks. I love this one from http://www.countrybouquetsfloral.com.


#4 Long low arrangements of herbs and thistle or other long-lasting flowers are great. This is 48″ long and it has a great modern look.

#5 I love these velvet pumpkins! They can be used every year and in numerous different ways. Mine came from Dwellings 207-781-3711 call them for colors, sizes and pricing. They can ship them to your door!

# 6 Herbs make great centerpieces and they are useful too. Here I planted rosemary and lavender in some old pots and I added candles in mason jars with moss. I put everything on tray so it is easy to move if you need to put food on the table.

#7 Feathers are fabulous and these arrangements can be done in advance and they last forever! This one is from http://floralhomedecor.net.


#8 I love this idea from Williams-Sonoma Home because it works from September to January you can add candles or ribbon and change the look!  http://www.williams-sonoma.com/


#9 You can make your own floral runner. I made this one as a demo for a client and it lasted about 8 days and cost about $25.

#10 Lastly you can make a wonderful table-scape with gourds they are inexpensive, colorful and long-lasting. Love this idea from http://anita-faraboverubies.blogspot.com/


I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! I am going to set my table today! I better get out the ironing board…my table clothes and napkins are clean but wrinkled!

I wish you all a peaceful, and beautiful Thanksgiving.
