Happy Thanksgiving

Wish diners a happy Thanksgiving with this long-lasting centerpiece: Start with a round woven mat in a rich autumn color such as burgundy or cinnamon. Place a large, clear hurricane globe slightly off-center on the mat. Insert a (battery-operated, please) candle inside the vase. Candles in shades of orange work well and bring to mind pumpkins, squash, and gourds. Surround the candle with small unshelled mixed nuts. Almonds, acorns and hazelnuts should be about the right size. Next to the vase, arrange paper flowers, turkeys and leaves. Finish the the arrangement with a color-coordinated tag stamped “Happy Thanksgiving” in an elegant script. Secure the tag to your paper flower arrangement with a length of ribbon and get ready to hear the ohs and ahs when diners arrive at the Thanksgiving table.
