The Great Indoors: Centerpiece a fresh take on holiday decor

It’s not necessary to spend a lot of money on a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be orange, brown and yellow or include a turkey in any way, shape or form. This centerpiece is made from fresh green vegetables and combined with the white candles gives a contemporary spin to the Thanksgiving table.

It’s not necessary to spend a lot of money on a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be orange, brown and yellow or include a turkey in any way, shape or form. This centerpiece is made from fresh green vegetables and combined with the white candles gives a contemporary spin to the Thanksgiving table.

Any fruit or vegetable and ribbon color will work. I spent about 12 dollars on this arrangement and we had a lot of fun putting it together.

Fresh Veggie and White Flower Centerpiece

What you’ll need:

3-4 white candles of various sizes

1 artichoke

1 bunch of asparagus

1 handful of fresh green beans

Rubber bands

Ribbon

White flowers (real or artificial)

Greenery or leaves (real or artificial)

Cranberries or other red garnish

Steps:

Decide which vegetables will fit with which candles. Cut the beans and the asparagus into similar sizes to encircle around their respective candles. Use rubber bands to secure them to the candle. Tie a ribbon around the candle to hide the rubber bands. Hollow out the inside of the artichoke and make the bottom flat by cutting off the artichoke stem. Put a candle inside the artichoke. Place the candles on a plate, arrange the flowers, greenery, and cranberries around the candles.
