Before you go out and buy a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table, consider creating your own edible creation. Both beautiful and delicious, these personalized designs will be the ultimate conversation starter (or snack) for your holiday guests. From custom cabinets to custom centerpieces, Willow Lane Cabinetry has you covered this season.
Fall Harvest Centerpiece
Seasonal produce is so colorful and full of texture. When arranged the right way, your favorite fall harvest can be transformed into a breathtaking centerpiece for your kitchen or dining room table.
This fall harvest centerpiece from DIY Network is a great example of how easy and beautiful an edible centerpiece can be. To recreate this design, start with a large bowl or crate that can be used as the foundation for your centerpiece, then layer leafy greens like kale or swiss chard. Add seasonal produce that captures the classic fall covers, like pumpkins, turnips, and carrots. Use herbs to fill in any gaps and your edible arrangement is complete.
Simple Kale Bouquet
Kale is more than just a superfood — it is also a beautiful leafy green that makes for a gorgeous fall bouquet. And it’s not just green either! Kale comes in many variegated hues.
As you can see in this edible centerpiece from HGTV, you can find kale in rich purple shades and even white. When combined, these leaves create a beautiful bouquet for Thanksgiving dinner. This variation also uses asparagus to add texture and pops of green, but you can incorporate any fall vegetable or plant of your choosing. This bouquet is so unique, your guests will never believe that no flowers were used!
Colored Pasta Centerpiece
It might come as a bit of a surprise that you have the perfect material for a fall centerpiece right in your kitchen pantry cabinet, but dry pasta can be used to make a beautiful and artistic arrangement. All you’ll need is a few different types of pasta and glass or wire containers.
Home Is Where the Boat Is created this colorful centerpiece using a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors of pasta. You probably already have your standard white or whole wheat pasta in your kitchen pantry cabinet. But you can also find red, green, and purple pasta, which is naturally colored by vegetables. These vibrant shades are perfect for fall and can be combined to create a fun centerpiece for your holiday table.
Another easy and edible fall centerpiece pairs apple and eucalyptus. This sweet arrangement from Design Improvised takes just a few minutes to throw together, yet still looks professionally designed. It truly is foolproof.
All you’ll need is a small pedestal bowl, different sized apples, and some fresh eucalyptus. The best part about this centerpiece is that you get to enjoy one of fall’s most beloved fruits when dinner is over.
Pumpkin Flower Vase
For a semi-edible centerpiece, turn your pumpkin patch picks into flower vases. By simply scooping out the center, you can create a fall vase that is fun and festive.
Follow these directions from Southern Living, which advises putting florist foam inside your pumpkin and keeping it well watered so that your pumpkin vase will last a full week.
