For the centerpieces you can also use clear glassware, jars, vases or jugs of water to hold pineapples, leaves, berries, nuts or acorns.
Likewise, fresh fruits such as apples placed in a clear container make a beautiful centerpiece. You can also create a statement by placing a votive candle inside a carved mini pumpkin or apple. Another great option is to take bottles and fill them with freshly cut lavender, rosemary, or mint.

Great Centerpiece Decoration for Fall and Thanksgiving
Fortunately, Thanksgiving is also represented by the colors and products of autumn. So you can just as well take advantage of hay bales, corn stalks, and squash like other products. Some people prefer to consider plastic in decorative items for their home.
This we really do not recommend. Plastic causes a lot of problems to the environment and it never seems to go away. It is preferable that you buy accessories with materials that are organic. Which can last a long time, resulting in less waste at the same time.

Today you can find many decorative accessories, such as a wrought iron turkey or ceramic or glass gourds. Use cloth tablecloths instead of those that only have one use only. In the same way, perhaps you can decorate your table with items that you can reuse instead of buying.
Today there are infinities of DIY with reused materials. For example, you can take those canning jars and engrave original, festive designs on them. You can even decoupage them with leaves and put orange candles inside and add them to your table.

You can take an empty wine bottle and paint it. If you want you can add twists of string. And the children of the house can make tiny thank you posters and place them in the bottles. Of course, and it stands to reason, that most people link Thanksgiving to food.
Well, many times food can also be an art in fall and Thanksgiving decorations. Then use the food to make an original edible centerpiece. Take out that cornucopia and fill it with grapes, apples, pears, chocolate, pretzels, bread, or nuts, in short, whatever you want.
You can also carve a watermelon in the shape of a boat or basket and fill it with fruit. Remember that the most important thing for decorating your table is to convey the spirit of the season. Which is gratitude for everything received. Of course most people think of pumpkins when it comes to fall and Thanksgiving decorations.
But you don’t really necessarily need pumpkins to create a stunning centerpiece. You can use some ears of wheat and a small ribbon, to create a striking bouquet but at the same time simple. This can be combined and adjusted to any table.

Wrap a piece of ribbon around each can and tie. Pick out a cute bunch of flowers and add it to the tin. Of course, you will have to make sure they are the perfect size. If not, then measure and cut to the height you want. But remember to cut the ends at an angle to allow them to absorb more water.
Fill each can with cold tap water and arrange them across the center of the table. You can also make a great bouquet with acorns and pinecones. To do this, first paint a few dozen acorns and pinecones in gold. Then place them in a narrow round vase starting with the largest acorns and ending up filling the spaces with the smallest acorns.
