It's time to start thinking about your Thanksgiving centerpieces. Here are a few ideas:
Purchase or make small grapevine rings to use as a base, or bend a piece of coat hanger into a circle. Next, wire on small stems of berries, leaves, and flowers using thin wire wound tightly around the base. Use fresh flowers for a one-use decoration. Or find pretty silk blooms for a longer-lasting design.
Though this sample may be too tall for a dining table, this arrangement will be the talk of your guests. Place it in an entryway or on a sideboard, or make a shorter version for a centerpiece. The top of a white pumpkin was hollowed out, then fit with a vase filled with soaked floral foam. Stems of leaves and berry branches are inserted into the foam that holds everything in place.
What better way to celebrate the Thanksgiving harvest feast than by creating a centerpiece using gorgeous green vegetables. To make the asparagus and green bean wrapped candles, stretch two sturdy rubber bands around a white pillar candle, then insert vegetable stalks underneath the band. Cover the bands with a circle of satin ribbon and decorate the platter with a few white mums and coffee berry sprigs.
