Top 4 Edible Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Edible Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Thanksgiving is now just a little over two weeks away and it really is time to start thinking about all the little details to make your Thanksgiving celebration memorable. Yes, delicious food matters, but so does your presentation. Today we are focusing on edible Thanksgiving centerpieces.  As much as we adore flowers, we are also very pragmatic and get ridiculously excited when we find fabulous “two-fers” or in other words, products that serve two purposes.  In this case, all four of these ideas are visually interesting and practical. Think DIY vegetable and/or fruit filled cornucopias, fruit turkey arrangements, giant chocolate turkeys, and yummy duos of caramel apple turkeys. Which would we choose? All four! Definitely the chocolate concoctions for the main table centerpieces, a brimming over vegetable cornucopia on the appetizer table, and the fruit turkey on the dessert table (such a fun way to present your healthy dessert option).

Thanksgiving Floral Centerpieces

Just a quick reminder!  Do not forget to order your Thanksgiving centerpieces and flower arrangements for your Thanksgiving dinner party!

It doesn’t take much time on PartyIdeaPros.com to figure out how much we love fresh flowers. The deep, warm hues of autumn make for some fabulous flower arrangements. Here are a few of our favorites! If you are not so into formal Thanksgiving floral centerpieces, even a few fresh flowers in a small vase or mason jar will give color and life to your table.

Chic Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece | Fall Party Planning

Chic Painted Pumpkin Vase with FlowersChic Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece | Fall Party Planning 

We love this painted pumpkin vase with fresh flowers that showed up on our Facebook feed from Beau-coup, one of our favorite party favor merchants.  Yes, flowers always look great in pumpkins but an orange pumpkin with fall flowers is very predictable.  All they did in this photo was spray paint this pumpkin white and add a chic contemporary floral arrangement to create a fresh centerpiece look for fall.  We love the painted pumpkin displayed on the acacia cake stand also!

We also think this idea would translate well to an intimate dinner party or could even be used at each place setting as a place card / party favor (one per couple is just fine!).  Simply use a miniature painted pumpkin and add a handful of freshly picked ombre flowers...

We are definitely adding this to our We <3 Fall Pinterest board as we gather ideas for this year's Thanksgiving festivities.

Update

Last night we happened upon a carved pumpkin display with some stunning pumpkin art but we were particularly taken with a pumpkin that had a rectangular cut out specifically designed for inserting an iPad. It was genius and could make for a spectacular Thanksgiving centerpiece especially if you insert your iPad filled with home movies and family photos into this chic painted pumpkin centerpiece. We highly recommend spray painting the cut-out too!

Party Hearty!

Peace and Love Party Theme, Ideas & Supplies

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.
