The same mini pumpkins and gourds we use in our Glittered Mini Pumpkin Place Card designs can also be used to create a festive Thanksgiving centerpiece.
Mini pumpkins or gourds, in their earthy palette of oranges, greens and creamy whites, provide the perfect pop for a harvest-hued tablescape. Load up on one color (we love the white) or mix several shades, depending on your décor.
Simply stack the pumpkins or gourds in glass hurricanes and leave them as-is for a clean, modern look—or fill the hurricanes with water and add flowers to create an autumnal-colored arrangement, sliding the stems around the pumpkins.
Bonus: While your centerpiece will be a feast for the eyes, once Thanksgiving has passed it can become a feast for the stomach! Save those mini pumpkins or gourds for roasting—just wash, remove the tops and seeds, roast at 350°F until soft and fill with your favorite autumnal soup, grain or roasted vegetable. Nothing goes to waste!
