The first option for using candles is to keep things simple with a long, skinny simple serving tray. Put some warm colored candles in clear glass candle holders and place them on the tray. Surround the candles with twigs, cranberries, acorns, and small pine cones. If you’d rather add more height to your table, try using tall taper candles in simple candle holders, surrounded by the same twigs, cranberries, acorns, and pine cones. Using taller candles will add drama to your table without a lot of effort. Using these simple Thanksgiving table centerpieces will leave plenty of space for all of the food you’ll bring to the table. Just remember that centerpieces featuring candles aren’t always child friendly. Keep the kids at their own table or try another centerpiece design.
