Simple & Natural No Stress Thanksgiving Tables

You’ve got your tablelcloth, chargers, dinner plates, napkins, and flatware for the big feast, but what about a centerpiece? If you’re hosting no doubt you’re trying to remember one hundred other little things and the centerpiece is a last minute collaboration. No worries. The easiest way to keep it stress free is to keep it super simple. All natural is an easy approach, and doesn’t take more than a trip to the supermarket or a walk around your neighborhood to gather clippings from the great outdoors.

Evergreen clippings add greenery to an elegant setting, a snips, branches, and votives always looks fresh and inviting.

If you crave color add a bright napkin and colorful candles but keep the centerpiece as simple as a few pieces of eucalyptus and a store-bought bouquet.

Olive branches again for the win! Rest pomegranates on top for a more subtle dash of color.
