Our hands-down favorite aspect of Thanksgiving? Well, aside from the turkey and abundance of pie, it's gathering our loved ones around our festive Thanksgiving table. After spending much of the day cooking, we want to indulge in our festive Thanksgiving meal and admire our table display — and we want it to be perfect. But how? 

Considering you've already pulled out your favorite set of china, organized your seating arrangement, and planned the menu, there is only one thing left to do: to find a jaw-dropping centerpiece to pull it all together; and how do we do that?  

Whether you love a table set with fresh flowers, a simple runner or garland, or even want to go maximalist with layers and varying heights of foliage, candles, flowers, pumpkins (for a more dramatic display), we have you covered. 

We found nine Thanksgiving centerpieces to add to your Thanksgiving table decor. Oh, and the best part? Several of these Thanksgiving centerpieces can be mixed and matched together! Making any (or all) of these ideas the perfect finishing touch to complete the Thanksgiving feast you've worked so hard to create!
