Want a pretty (and easy and inexpensive) centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table?
I bought the small white dishes at TJ Maxx for a couple dollars each. To make the centerpieces, cut squares of florist foam (buy at any craft store) to fit in the dishes, soak them in water and place them in the bottom of each one. Push a candle into the center of each piece of foam.
Take fresh flowers (I bought two bunches at the grocery store) and snip the stems to 3 - 4 inches long (vary the stem length so you have more flexibility in arranging them). Push the stems into the wet foam, spacing them around and filling in until you have used all your blooms. The fuller it is the prettier it looks.
Then, I go out front and snip clippings from my bushes and fill in any holes with greenery.
Voila! This seriously takes 15 minutes to put together once you have all the items. You can easily adjust the size and color of the arrangement by using different containers and different flowers.
