5 Step Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

15 Minutes

This 5 step easy Thanksgiving centerpiece I am sharing today truly is one you can just throw together last minute! I don’t say that lightly….literally my mom and I had 10 minutes the other day to grab items from around my house and create a centerpiece. It was pretty darn funny but I have to say I love how it turned out and it truly was easy to make!

Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Here is what you will need to get started!

  • wreath
  • faux pumpkin
  • dried or faux fruit
  • tray (affiliate link)
  • moss or filler (mine is from the Dollar Store)

First, find a large tray that has a large lip or side to it. I used one similar to this one here. I chose a tray for the base so I could move it around and have it on either our kitchen table, dining room table or kitchen island. So basically this centerpiece is portable! 🙂 Ha!

Next, you will spread some moss around the edges or the entire tray if you like. I just used it around the edges because that’s all I had!

Then simply nuzzle a wreath of your choosing on top of the moss. I chose this one I found at Rod Works because it had some fun texture to it.

Then since the center was open my mom and I collected a few of my faux pumpkins to try in the center of the wreath. This shorter rounder one from Target fit best.

After scrounging around a bit in some drawers I found these dried artichokes from last Fall’s tablescape and you may remember these green pears from my Fall kitchen. They both worked to add some fun color and texture to the centerpiece.

The final step is to enjoy your Thanksgiving decor. Oh, and don’t forget that this is a portable centerpiece…that’s what has made it my favorite centerpiece to date! Decorating kept easy is always a good idea!
