I love a big dramatic centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table. I often set my table early in the day, add a ridiculously large centerpiece and just admire it all day long! This is the one time it is ok to move your centerpiece - and to make it too big - because with all the food (we call it a feast at my house) I am going to move it to off to make room for more food than you could believe! If you have a sentimental container you want to use - bring it! this is your day to shine. And if you are going to someone's house for thanksgiving - what better way to say thank you!
