5 Minute Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Easy Thanksgiving decorations in just 5 minutes

I’ll be honest, I haven’t had any floral training, but I’ve always enjoyed working with flowers. For the longest time, I overcomplicated it & I would be disappointed in the end result. My friend Kelly of The Monarch Flower taught me the philosophy that anything is a vase, long before it became popular to use something other than a glass cylinder vase to work with. One problem I have faced when creating centerpieces is keeping the cost to a minimum. It’s easy to create a breathtaking centerpiece with $100+ of blooms, but I can’t justify that for dinner. When we’re having guests, I want to make our table feel special, especially for Thanksgiving! To create a 5 minute Thanksgiving centerpiece, I start by gathering. The first resource I look to is our home. What can I use that I already have? Last year, I found a beautiful brass pedestal bowl on Etsy. Volante Floral made an incredible wispy flower arrangement that I’m still in love with!

This centerpiece was inspired by the unique & beautiful apple pear. The soft, fall color palette is perfect for Thanksgiving & works with things I already have – my flax linen napkins & soft green velvet pillows.
