Thanksgiving Centerpieces with Bonus DIY Tutorial
We've got you covered if you're planning a fall event, family Thanksgiving dinner, or Friendsgiving celebration. The focus of this feasting time is usually the food. So why not make the table the focal point of your decorations? Thanksgiving centerpieces are show-stopping arrangements perfect for your festivities.
I designed a simple arrangement perfect for Thanksgiving centerpieces. Follow the step-by-step instructions or check out the video tutorial at the bottom.
- Red Meets Sunflower DIY Flower Combo
- OASIS Single Foam Brick tray
- OASIS Standard Floral Foam Bricks
- Basic Floral Supply Kit for Arranging Bulk Flowers
- Vessel (we chose a cute basket)
Step One: Process the flowers and prep them for arranging. Keep the focal flower stems long. This makes them pop out and stand above the rest of the flowers. Open any flowers that need some help blooming. Pick whatever vessel fits your design, table, and style. Soak one OASIS foam brick with water and place it in a brick tray. Put both inside your vessel of choice.
Step Two: Add greenery to both ends of the basket. Layer different types of greenery to add texture and dimension.
Step Three: Add the line flowers. In this case, it's blue delphinium. Add even more greenery to the edges. There's enough to hide the foam.
Step Four: Add filler flowers to cover up holes and fill in the arrangement.
Step Five: Add focal flowers after you complete the base. Make sure to space the focal flowers out. Spin the arrangement around so you get all angles.
Step Six: Once you place most of the focal flowers, add more filler flowers to cover up any holes. Sometimes non-focal flowers, like delphinium, need to be pulled up or rearranged after placing other flowers. Line flowers create dynamic movement, and if they're too low, this won't happen.
