Aside from preparing a Thanksgiving feast brimming with traditional food that will excite your guests’ palates, a Thanksgiving party is never complete without striking décor to establish the festive, heartwarming ambiance characteristic of this classic holiday. So accompany your savory stuffed turkey and array of delectable side dishes with a gorgeous centerpiece, and add an air of warmth and sophistication to your family gathering.
Feast of Fruits
Be inspired by the season’s fruits when creating this centerpiece. Head to the local farmer’s market and select from a range of autumn produce that showcases the season’s amazing colors. From apples, cherries, figs, cranberries, and grapes to plums, pears, and chestnuts, autumn’s bounty provides a variety of amazing produce to incorporate into your design. Consider selecting fruits or nuts that will create a beautiful play of color. Once you’ve made your selection, place these on a sturdy base or within a frame that will act as a decorative border, such as this English Boxwood Wreath. The lush green tones of this wreath create a color contrast that heightens the freshness of the produce. Once dinner is done, you may even serve the fruit as part of a fresh fruit dessert platter for your guests to enjoy.
