Hey friends! I am so excited for Thanksgiving. With the holiday being less than a week away, I am cutting it close on sharing this simple centerpiece idea! I love a modern centerpiece, and usually I go with non-traditional colors for my Thanksgiving decor. My Green Jadeite Cake Stand is one of my favorite items I own for entertaining. I use it for centerpieces all the time! This year, I decided green and gold would be so pretty. I used some pumpkins and greenery I already had, and added a few things I got from the Dollar store to create this.

The metallic green pumpkins are so pretty, I could not believe they were only a dollar a piece. I also got some $1 LED flameless candles and used thin gold washi tape to add stripes. I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! They definitely look like something that would cost more than $1, am I right?!

The other pumpkins I used are some that I’ve collected from craft stores over the years. Right now is a great time to buy them because they are usually 70%-80% off. The stores are trying to clear it out right before Thanksgiving!

How to make this Thanksgiving centerpiece, step by step:

First, wrap gold washi tape around your candles.

Place the candles in the middle of a cake stand.

Then, wrap the greenery around the edges of it, secure it with floral wire.

Arrange pumpkins around the base of the cake stand.

You’re done! I also used a placemat under the cake stand, but that’s totally optional.

See? Having elegant Thanksgiving table decorations can be simple and inexpensive!
