Centerpieces for Thanksgiving
Bittersweet with Candle
This arrangement can easily be made with a tray or foundation. Set the candle in the middle and arrange the bittersweet around it. Bittersweet can be real or artificial.
I like this arrangement with a Thanksgiving table runner, 2 hurricane candles and different colored gourds or pumpkins arranged around the candles.
Use your imagination
Turkey, pumpkins, gourds, chrysanthemums, corn husks, corn shocks, cornstalks, wheat sheaves, field corn, cranberries are some of the things you could use for a tabletop arrangement.
A ceramic turkey flanked with orange candles, stuck into the top of mini-pumpkins is very conducive for a Thanksgiving table centerpiece.
A fruit platter is always appropriate for Thanksgiving. Real fruit is always better-looking than artificial. A cake pedestal could be used or a box covered with a napkin and a plate on top.
A beautiful cornucopia with flowers and notice the blue tablecloth that is truly a different color for Thanksgiving, but seems very appropriate.
