Hydrangeas are versatile flowers. They brighten our homes throughout the year, and when fall comes they just go on; silk hydrangeas make wonderful centerpieces for Thanksgiving.

Hydrangea heads have always been a part of traditional harvest festivals, but often in dried form. Modern day silk hydrangeas can mimic the dried variety which means you can have a very traditional style arrangement or centerpiece without worrying about the problems dried flowers bring, the wont dry uout or crack, or drop bits on your floor or table. Silk ‘dried’ flowers are very well behaved.

Here are a number of the best choices of Thanksgiving centerpiece I’ve been able to find online.

Whether you are happy to buy, or are looking for an idea to DIY, you’ll find Thanksgiving centerpieces easy to put together. Gather some silk ‘dried’ hydrangea heads and push them into a styrofoam ring to make a lovely wreath, then fill the center with candles for your Thnksgiving table. Afterwards you can hang the wreath on your wall.

Here’s a great example of a candlestick arrangement from Leanne at the flower school, this would make a great Thanksgiving table center. The foundation is dried green hydrangea, mixed with purple, orange and some lovely fall foliage.
