Today I am sharing three Thanksgiving flower arrangements, one fresh, one faux, and one mixed! I think you are going to like the results.
This year I am planning out my Thanksgiving flower arrangements in advance. I need a lot of arrangements for the four tables I will be setting and I am not sure if I want fresh, faux, or a mixture of both. Before you know which is which, pick your favorite.
Hold that thought for a minute.
Thanksgiving Flower Arrangements
Before I sat down to write this blog post, I thought it might make sense to think about the Thanksgiving flower arrangements I had made in year past.
But then something happened.
I have no recollection at all of ever making Thanksgiving centerpieces.
Assuming I am not suffering from memory loss, I think I know what happened. Every year I am so focused on the meal preparation that the flowers are an afterthought.
And likely thrown together at the last minute.
Hence, that’s why this post is about three different options for Thanksgiving centerpieces. They include a beautiful fresh flower arrangement using grocery store flowers, an arrangement that is part faux and part fresh, and one that is all faux branches and faux flowers.
All three are great and would be wonderful on our Thanksgiving tables.
You have to promise me that you will let me know in the comments which one you liked best. Before you knew which one was which.
Fresh Thanksgiving Flowers Bowl Arrangement
I picked up some flowers at Trader Joe’s which included seeded eucalyptus, roses, tulips, chrysanthemums, and alstroemeria.
I bought this bowl a few weeks ago and so far I have used it twice. For flower arrangements! It’s vintage ironstone and I loved using it for this arrangement too.
Here are the steps to arrange the flowers:
- one – Line the bowl with plastic and fill with wet floral foam. Cut and add the roses.
- two – Continue adding the roses.
- three – Add the tulips, eucalyptus, alstroemeria, and chrysanthemums.
Fresh and Faux Table Centerpeice
I used the same flowers for the mixed floral arrangements and I used a ceramic vintage planter that I bought at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Once I had the fresh flowers in the pot, I then added a faux hydrangea and some gorgeous faux maple leaves.

Faux Thanksgiving Flowers
Well, these faux flowers look pretty incredible. I grabbed all of the fall-colored faux flowers in the Carriage House and arranged them in this vase.
This silver vase is actually a $5 flea market find. It is not fancy, not old, and pretty cheap. But I love it.
Don’t look too closely or you may notice how the top of the vase is a bit crooked.
As you can see, I added the faux hydrangeas, maple leaves, and a few paper flowers I made a few years ago. Isn’t it amazing how great they look?
So which one do you like the best? It doesn’t matter of course. All that matters is that you know you have options for your Thanksgiving Flower Arrangements. Do something easy that looks great and don’t overthink it!
I think the faux and combination faux/real flower arrangements were my favorite. Below are links to the faux flowers I used in this post so that you can create your own gorgeous Thanksgiving centerpieces.
