Any of you out there who are lucky enough to have Thanksgiving at your house, you only have to stress about the meal. Here are some super easy and affordable last minute centerpieces that will have guests impressed before the turkey hits the table!
If you have leftover pumpkins from Halloween and a candle sitting around the house, you can make this one in a cinch. Just cut an opening in the pumpkin for the candle, get some berry sprigs and leaves, and you are done in 10 min, so you can get to your six pies!
I love this one because it looks so rustic, yet put together. Get a table runner, some leaves, squash, pumpkins and gourds. Fill glass dishes with cranberries, apples, pumpkins and nuts. Arrange the leaves and squash around the dishes.
I think this one would be cute in old glass jars too, with indian corn. Play it up!
This one is soft, but stunning amid your turkey and sweet potatoes. If you wanted to add some color, cranberries would give it a pop, or acorns and pine cones.
Everyone loves flowers. Just go to your local florist and get some fallish flowers, such as tulips, roses, gerber daisies, or whatever tickles your fancy. Put it in a clear vase and cut up fruit!
You can’t leave the kids out! We always have a “kids” table at Thanksgiving… here’s one their sure to like! Steam the bottom of an ice cream cone by heating water in a teakettle and putting the pointed end into the steam for about 1 minute. Gently curve the end about 1/2 an inch from the tip and hold for 15 seconds. Steam one side of the cone’s open end; press to flatten. (So it doesn’t roll) Let it cool until set. Dip the open end in white chocolate and roll in crushed pistachios. Refrigerate until set. Fill with jelly beans. You’ll be the favorite!
