A Thanksgiving centerpiece from the garden looks fresh and lovely
Gardening.about.com has a great idea that It makes sense that since nature is so obliging in autumn, with fruits, flowers and foliage in all the appropriate holiday colors, that we take advantage of this bounty and bring it indoors for decorating. Thanksgiving centerpieces can be elaborate creations or as simple as a basket full of colorful leaves and berries.
Forage through your own yard and gardens for the making of a holiday display. What nature doesn't supply can be easily found in grocery stores and nurseries, like roses and carnations in shades of orange and gold, russet sunflowers and spider mums and purple pikes of Liatris.
You can use dried flowers and herbs and grasses for accents Colorful leaves of Maple and Dogwood are great additions and try weaving grapevine or ivy through the decorations. Fruits and vegetables like pumpkins and gourds work well. It's a great creative exercise which brings some joy and liveliness to the table.
If you're stuck in an apartment in the city or just don't have time, this centerpiece would do the job.
