If you’re short on time and funds, Mother Nature can give you a Thanksgiving décor assist. If you have a yard or garden you can gather supplies right outside your door, but plenty of materials can be found in the produce section for little money.

Thanksgiving Autumn Centerpiece with Candles, Mini Pumpkin, Leaves, Nuts and Poppy Seed Heads

Once you get back to the dining table, mantle or sideboard, keep your arrangements simple and use a mix of forms, colors and textures for quick, eye-pleasing displays.

  • A bright, white birch branch down the center of the table with fallen leaves and colorful gourds and/or apples, in random clusters along each side, is a perfect example.
  • Three mini pumpkins, some acorns and a chunky candle work well for a smaller space and can be given a more polished looked by placing them on a decorative tray or cloth napkin.
  • For a bit more drama and vertical interest – use twiggy branches, single or multiple, in bottles or vases set amongst your arrangements or on their own.
  • For a nod to the cornucopia tradition, tip a basket on its side and arrange autumn fruit and forage in a colorful tumble from within.
