In preparation for Thanksgiving, I was thinking about how I could make a long-lasting centerpiece that would make setting the table simple and easy on Thanksgiving Day. I came up with the concept of using potted herbs as the focal point of my table so I could create the centerpiece well in advance and focus on cooking before guests arrive. Today I’m sharing how to make a living herb Thanksgiving centerpiece that is not only beautiful but long-lasting and fragrant!

The concept for this tablescape was to create a casual but fragrant centerpiece that only took minutes to put together but made a big impact.
I planted fresh rosemary, oregano and ornamental cabbage in matching pots to keep the look cohesive. I love these beautiful rustic pots from Terrain. They have the best planters for every style! I’ve added a few affiliate links for you below. Just tap on the photo to shop.
Once I had all of the planters placed, I tucked some fresh cut oak branches, that I foraged from our backyard trees, in between the herbs.
I also added about a dozen mini white pumpkins sprinkled around the herbs and oak branches.
The final touch was six gold candlesticks with gray taper candles, placed along the length of the table.
I wanted to use a casual place setting on this table so I chose galvanized chargers topped with casual white plates with a leaf detail on the edge.
I added a soft gray napkin and placed a single oak leaf on top to carry over the colors of the centerpiece.
My favorite part of this centerpiece is the beautiful fragrance that the herbs give off in the dining room. Not only does it look beautiful but it smells amazing!
I hope this gives you a few tips about how to make a living herb Thanksgiving centerpiece for your table. And after dinner, these potted herbs look beautiful in the kitchen window!!
