1. Fall Fruit Centerpiece
For me, a Thanksgiving centerpiece is all about celebrating fall’s bounty, and one easy way to do that is to bring that fall food into your decor. Here’s how!
- Large, shallow bowl, tray, or large vase
- enough red apples to fill your centerpiece, plus one pear (see below for variations, if apples and pears aren’t your thing!)
- roll of twine
Fill the container 2/3 of the way with your apples, place the pear artfully, so it’s visible, then fill the rest of the way with the apples. Wrap the twine around the top of your container a few times, then tie a knot. I like to leave the loose ends on the longish side, so they dangle onto the table a bit.
Not crazy about red with a pop of green? Here are some other ideas:
- change the ratio – make it mostly pears with one apple or use all one color, like in the photo above
- use a mix of apples in different colors
- try tiny gourds
- fill with pine cones
- use whole walnuts (in the shell) and fresh cranberries in your container
