3-Step Thanksgiving Centerpiece
Create a harvest centerpiece that will make your table memorable. Everything you need can be purchased at your local nursery!
Assemble Your Topiary
Step 1: Choose pumpkins of varying sizes and colors. (We used two pumpkins; more can be added for height.) Select a container that is wide enough for the largest pumpkin to rest in. If needed, a block of Styrofoam or florist’s foam can be added to stabilize the bottom pumpkin.
Step 2: Measure and cut a wooden dowel so that it is long enough to connect the pumpkins. Using a sharp knife, cut out the stem of the largest pumpkin, and then insert the dowel.
Tip: For best results, assemble the topiary the day before your big meal. (Because the pumpkin pulp is not removed, the topiary has a shorter life span.)
