Designing Your Tablescape Around Your Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Thanksgiving is upon us.  Once the menu has been planned and the guests have been invited, it’s time to begin planning your tablescape. Begin by selecting a colorful, fresh floral centerpiece from Schaaf Floral that will be as beautiful as your dinner is delicious.

We have several Thanksgiving centerpieces that will compliment any table. Choose either an “Elegant Autumn Bouquet“,  “Fall for Daisies” or “Garden Joy” floral centerpiece. We also have a lovely “Fruits of Autumn” centerpiece displayed in a basket that would make a wonderful focal point for your table, that guests can enjoy before or after the meal.  In addition to these special Thanksgiving centerpieces, we also have autumn-inspired arrangements, perfect to display on your Thanksgiving table.

Once you’ve chosen your Thanksgiving centerpiece, design your tablescape around it. Whether you set a formal table or prefer a more casual setting, the centerpiece should be the focal point as well as the inspiration for the rest of the tablescape.  For instance, choose one of the main colors from the centerpiece to use for the tablecloth and napkins. Then pick from the centerpiece’s secondary colors to use for table accents such as ribbon to loop around the napkins, place cards and candles.

Incorporate elements of autumn and harvest in your Thanksgiving tablescape.  Autumn leaves, dried cranberries, pinecones, twigs and mini pumpkins and gourds in assorted colors are just a few examples of items that can be placed around the centerpiece and at the individual place settings. For long tables, place the floral arrangement in the center of the table and create a matching pattern of autumn inspired items on either side of the centerpiece.

Your Thanksgiving tablescape should be a reflection of your own personal design flair.  A lovely centerpiece from Schaaf Floral will certainly be the star of the table, but you can make it your own by incorporating your own elements to compliment the centerpiece.
