Glowing Candles

Set the tone for your Thanksgiving feast with the glow of soft candlelight. Using glass vases as faux hurricanes, fill the bottom of each with nature-inspired accents. Here, we used raffia* (cut into 2-inch strips) and river rocks. Other festive options include colored glass stones or even candy corn.

Tip: To avoid competing aromas at the table, be sure to choose unscented candles for your centerpiece.

*When using raffia, make sure it is flattened in the bottom of the vase so that it doesn't catch fire. And to avoid any accidents, always be in the room when candles are lit.
