Kids will love helping to assemble this large sailing ship centerpiece, which is reminiscent of the vessels that brought colonists to the new world. It's a cinch to make and will bring a boatload of fun to any Thanksgiving table.
Floral elements are often the most expensive part of tabletop decor; however, supermarket flowers can look chic with the proper editing. To create a white-on-white floral centerpiece that's elegant and cost-effective, choose different species of white flowers ranging in a mix of shapes and textures, then edit out any filler such as baby's breath or leaves. Bunch the different species together in a well-balanced range of heights, then place in a mix of different vessels.
If you’re out of time and out of money before your party, why bother with floral for the table? Instead, simply add potted houseplants to the tablescape. While plants won’t add the same elegance that flowers bring to the table, you’ll still be able to add color, texture and shape into the mix.
For a simple, modern look, group an odd number of white vases and fill each with one color of flowers, like the pink and white versions here. A few gold ornaments in the central white hydrangea arrangement adds unexpected sparkle.
