Buying a home in Irvine, CA, before the holiday seasons? Between perfecting a turkey and making decadent pies, Irvine residents don’t want to forget about how important it is to beautify their holiday table. Here are some ideas for budget-friendly and elegant Thanksgiving centerpieces that will surely impress your guests.
Put a water-filled vase of vibrant flowers center stage by concealing them inside a hollow pumpkin that has been painted white. Make it even more eye-catching by placing two miniature pumpkins embellished with gold tacks along the ridges beside it.
Cast sparkling light across your Thanksgiving table with several recycled grater lights. Put lit votive candles in glass jars on a long tray, and place graters over them. Spread faux fall leaves and berry springs around the bottoms of the graters.
Sprigs of Berries
For those who don’t like the mess associated with scooping out gourds, drill small holes sporadically around the rind instead. Insert flower stems or branches of orange and red berries in the holes, and you’ll get an equally breathtaking effect.
Take advantage of nature’s abundance to create a stunning Thanksgiving centerpiece. Collect pinecones, branches and berries from the backyard of your Turtle Ridge Irvine townhome for sale and mix them with autumn-themed dried flowers. Glue floral foam in a large wicker basket. Stick your fall pieces into the foam until it’s full and pleasing to the eye. Put a lace table runner down the center of your table and place your autumn arrangement on it. Add a wow factor to your centerpiece by placing a taper candle on each side of it.
Gold Nut Candles
Put a flameless candle in a few everyday glass containers, then fill them by putting unshelled walnuts that have been painted gold around each candle to hold it in place. Finish it off by placing the containers down the center of your holiday table and wind shiny gold ribbon between them.
