However, besides the centerpiece of gorgeous flowers, you may be wondering about some of the other things you can do to spruce up the dinner table. Whether this is your first time hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the family or you just want to do something different this year, consider the following suggestions.

The amount of space you have for decorations depends on how big your table is and how much room you need for food. Of course, you can gain some extra space by placing decorations around the table rather than on it. Whether you have a nearby bookcase, side table, shelf, or any other area, make sure you use the most of the space you have. With some extra space nearby you can get a bit more creative with your decorations.

Whether you want to place it on the table or on a nearby surface, consider adding a rustic basket full of pumpkins, apples, squash, and other seasonally appropriate fruits and vegetables. You could turn this basket on its side and have the fruit pouring out of it in an organized manner, and you could even decorate it further by placing fake fall leaves around it.

Besides placing them in a basket or creating a traditional cornucopia, you can also use pumpkins and gourds in other ways. For example, simply cut a hole in the top of one to create a makeshift candleholder. This will give your table a unique and unquestionably fall look that will have your guests talking.

Implement these ideas or come up with some creative ones of your own to get the most out of your dinner table decorations this Thanksgiving.
