Harvest Centerpieces

Vases filled with flowers and natural elements, flickering candles, bowls overflowing with seasonal ingredients -- these displays of autumn complete the romance of the Thanksgiving feast. Our tips will inspire you to be bold with color and creative with your holiday presentation.

  • Add drama to your table with unexpected height. Tree branches give a nod to the season, and the natural hues complement a harvest celebration.

  • A pop of vibrant color creates a beautiful contrast to shades of green and chestnut. A silver pitcher transforms simple into elegant, an eye-catching alternative to a glass vase.

  • Group clusters of candles on a table runner or plate for a cozy glow. Fill out the centerpiece with greenery and seasonal berries, or even sprigs of herbs.

  • For a casual table, consider a potted centerpiece, which lends a rustic touch. A burlap runner or earth-toned tablecloth is the perfect accompaniment.

  • Arrange persimmons, apples, pears, pomegranates or other seasonal ingredients in a decorative dish or bowl. Sprays of fall foliage can be tucked between the fruit for a bountiful feel.

  • When flowers and candles begin to crowd smaller tables, make the food part of your display. A colorful soup tureen or platter can be both beautiful and practical.
