Above are photos of my Thanksgiving centerpieces that I quickly put together the morning of. We had a turkey fry to celebrate the holiday, and I set up tables on my deck for family and friends to eat, drink and chat. Taking a cue from my friend Vanessa of OneHauteKid's post on gathering flowers from your yard for arrangement, I quickly cut some berries off of a thorny pyracantha bush that is taking over my side yard. (The berries look much prettier in the vases than they actually do on the out of control bush.) I used clear glass vases for several of the tables, and did a small arrangement in a glass that had red botanical silhouettes on it that was a candle gift from Anthropologie a few years back that I just could not part with once the candle was gone.
