Thanksgiving Centerpieces

If you're hosting Thanksgiving this year you want to make sure your guests can see everyone at the table. I don't like when I can't see the person across from me because a flower arrangement is in my way. If you prefer flowers, use a low arrangement instead of high. Cut the stems so just the flower is showing. I did this in a square vase:

I also like simple candlesticks on the table. They don't take up too much space, which is important with so many dishes on the table, and they are simple, but elegant. Or, group together candles of different heights on a plate or charger. You can also use a colored tablecloth to add color (I use a dark purple as shown above) or festive place mats. 

Below are some other options:

Short floral arrangements with elegant candlesticks paired with formal china. Love it!

Colored candles in stenciled glass holders:
Combination of fall vegetables in a ceramic bowl:

Cluster of vegetables and votive candles:

Fill a vase with fall fruit (apples, pears):

Place a pillar candle inside a vase. This one is filled with dry corn, or try chestnuts, fake berries or fruit, marbles, pinecones, etc.

Happy Thanksgiving!
