If you're looking for a good hostess gift or need a last-minute Thanksgiving centerpiece, flowers are the answer.

No boring bouquets allowed! Ahead, get inspired by fifteen chic, on-theme, and seasonal Thanksgiving flower ideas.

Fluffy dried florals like pampas grass look beautiful on a buffet table or the grand dining table (and throughout the rest of the home and even the buffet table as Sugar and Charm did here). And they'll last longer than fresh flowers.

6 Orange Bud Vases

8 Veer Off Theme

You don't have to stick to the classic Thanksgiving color scheme to set a pretty, festive table. Opt for something a little brighter and more energizing, like this orchid-hued runner, and then lay your stems flat across the center of the table. No vases, no problem—it's much more laidback this way.

9 Bold, Bright, and Beautiful

There's a time and place for understated, but a celebration is not one of them. Combine bold florals in orange, pink, and yellow tones.

10 Add Citrus Accents
