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
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.
