When you think of Thanksgiving, you think of cranberries. Maybe it’s that jellied cranberry from a can, or maybe your family has a famous cranberry and orange relish recipe that shows up on the table, or maybe it’s a cranberry martini. No matter what, cranberries in some form or another show up each year on your Thanksgiving table., so why not add cranberries as part of your Thanksgiving decorating? Here are some great ideas.
Create a centerpiece using a glass vase (or Mason jar), some store-bought flowers and fresh cranberries. Set the arrangement in the center of your table or serving area.
Use martini glasses, fresh cranberries and floating candles to make a decorative arrangement. Arrange the martini glasses on your table.
Create decorative floating candles using tall, inexpensive glass vases. Fill with orange slices and cranberries, then add a small floating candle. Not only is this decoration attractive, when the water gets warm, the scent of oranges and cranberries fill the air.
Kumquats, cranberries and walnut or chestnuts placed in a large glass vase with a votive candle (put the candle in a small glass votive holder for safety reasons) make a cheerful center piece for your dining or buffet table.
