Everyone loves dessert at Thanksgiving, so why not incorporate edible options into your centerpiece? Place pies or other desserts on pedestals and cake stands to create levels and fill in the look with acorns, flowers, or small gourds.
Get the whole family involved with this centerpiece option. Find a simple branch from your back yard and place it into a vase with some acorns or stones to keep it upright. Use construction paper to make leaves, and have each family member write down what they are grateful for this Thanksgiving season on them. Tie them to the branch with string or twine, and you have a centerpiece that the whole family was able to help create!
