Log centerpiece Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/annelorenijs While we think this log centerpiece is very festive indeed, we don't see how it could possibly work. Even if you serve the turkey from the kitchen or sideboard, and even if most of the sides are served buffet style from another table, there still won't be room for rolls, butter, pickles and olives, cranberry sauce(s) and all the other little things a proper Thanksgiving table needs. A smaller log, perhaps? Candles wrapped in vegetables Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/bhg There's just so much more you can do with vegetables besides eating them! We love the look of asparagus lined up around a white candle. We're hungry now, you too? And if you don't leave them out for too long, we think those asparagus could still be eaten! Heck, leave the candle next to some dip and maybe your guests will grab one and go for it! Sage and pinecones Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/artsyvbcats Now this centerpiece is just downright gorgeous! And simple to make. Get some sage, scour the yard (or park?) for fallen pine cones and you've got yourself a centerpiece. Paper pumpkin Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/familyjayne This gorgeous paper pumpkin will make any Thanksgiving table look extra crafty. The effort that goes into making one is minimal, and if you make it a fun color like this one, it could perhaps be reused for other occasions. Get directions on Minted. An organic, natural centerpiece Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/ PatriciaMacedo We love the dark greens and cool light colors in this very organic and natural centerpiece. We see kale heads and other greens, but really anything you have and love to look at will work here. You just need some squash and gourds in a similar color palate. This is a bounty, for sure. Cornucopia overflowing with cheese cubes Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/SnackingKitchen A cornucopia has long been a symbol associated with harvest and giving thanks. It's a wonderful Thanksgiving centerpiece and an even better one when the cornucopia itself is edible and what's inside are delicious cubes of cheese. Get the recipe at Snacking in the Kitchen. Classic cornucopia Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/arichey750 If you're looking for something traditional, nothing tops a cornucopia overflowing with gourds, grapes and pumpkins. Get one at your local crafts store or on Amazon. Log halved with candles Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/katintheridge Now this log we can actually get behind. It's smaller and it serves a function! Those little votive candles add festive light that will surely creative a nice glow on your Thanksgiving table. Find out how to do it Homedit.. Gold painted pumpkins Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/joliefddesigner "Goldfinger...he's the man, the man with the Midas touch..." While these pumpkins are not a pretty lady under thick gold paint, they certainly brings to mind the era of Bond, James Bond. If you're a fan of sheen and sparkle, try making painting your pumpkins gold for your holiday table. As a plus, the color will work at Christmas, too. Veggie platter shaped like a turkey Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/jstvns82 This is just so awesome. Can you imagine showing up to Thanksgiving and getting two turkeys?! Festive vase with candle Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/hutton0849 This one is super easy but gets the job D-O-N-E. Fill a vase with some cranberries, kumquats and nuts in their shells, nestle a candle on top (make sure it's safe!) and voila! Instant decorations. You can even eat everything when the holiday is over. Pumpkin wine bucket Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/bdnewell So this isn't exactly a centerpiece, but we think this pumpkin turned wine cooler would be a hit on any Thanksgiving table. Again, festive + functional = winning. Squash vase Photo Credit: Pinterest.com/bhg This is an ingenious way to use butternut squash for an unintended purpose. And while it may seem wasteful, you can't deny the cuteness of these squash vases. Find out how to do it at Better Homes & Gardens.
