Wine Bottle Candleholders

Save old wine bottles to make elegant candleholders for your Thanksgiving table. Fill them with grains, rice and spices to evoke a bounty of plenty for your holiday table.

Trifled Nuts

Make an elegant centerpiece out of nuts and dried fruit by tiering them like a trifle dessert. Pair with gathered fall leaves for a naturally sophisticated centerpiece that is also edible.

Cookie Jar Vase

No need for a vase when you can repurpose ceramic containers you already have. Try a cookie jar and soup bowls as vases and ramekins as candleholders. Dahlias, marigolds, zinnias, calendula and artichokes will pop against the stark white vases.

Fall Still Life

Make a sophisticated tabletop design by taking a cue from Dutch Master Still Life paintings. Fruit, squash and gourds placed on cake stands can turn food into fine art.

Something Blue

Use the complementary colors blue and orange for a fresh take on the traditional Thanksgiving color palette. We repurposed Bundt tins to use as containers for flowers.
