This year I will do different tablescapes for the two Thanksgivings. For the big one I have to set up two tables and need enough elements to match on both. I didn't need to worry about that yesterday. The arrangement was based on clear cylinders with bittersweet that I picked two days ago. It is a colorful addition to any fall tablescape. I especially like the crooked branches and the contemporary, oriental aesthetic it creates.
I like to keep centerpieces open and low enough to not interfere with table conversation. So many of the Thanksgiving arrangements are overly large and have to be removed for dinner. My preference is a simpler centerpiece and serving from a buffet area. We'll see if I have enough time to create another design for Turkey Day!
