Let's face it: The turkey -- however scrumptious it looks -- does not qualify as a Thanksgiving centerpiece. If you're hosting this year, wow your guests by creating an expected focal point for the table. Our pals over at ShelterPop and Holidash have some festive table-toppers that will set just the right tone for your Thanksgiving feast.

A maize-and-candle Thanksgiving centerpiece. ShelterPop provides instructions for five centerpieces that revolve around that ubiquitous first-Thanksgiving symbol: Indian corn. Our favorite is this vertical arrangement of about a dozen ears surrounding a simple hurricane candle (pictured above), but other projects include a vintage-looking vignette and a collection of corn nestled on a bed of wheat.

Holidash -- AOL's go-to holiday site -- has assembled some of Martha Stewart's greatest hits, with centerpieces that include this very modern arrangement of patterned ceramics and citrus fruits, tableaus of realistic-looking pumpkin and gourd candles, and cascading clusters of grapes.

    My sister made very simple centerpieces that looked great. She bought small pumpkins, collected attractive fall leaves from outside, arranged the leaves under the pumpkin and voila! An all natural, low-cost, seasonal centerpiece.
