Thanksgiving is just a few days away and most of us are in pre holiday mode right now. Whether you are hosting or a guest asked to bring something along, we have an easy centerpiece you can make for your own table or to bring as a beautiful hostess gift.
The first one is our layered dried beans with some seasonal gourds that took us about 5 minutes to put together. It was so simple. We bought an assortment of dried beans and lentils in the grocery store, and then just poured them into the glass container in layers. Total cost was about $9! Also, you can use the beans after Thursday to make a bean soup or some turkey chili to use up all the leftovers!
This is also an easy and unique hostess gift and although we designed ours to be a large centerpiece, you could do it in a smaller glass dish to bring as a hostess gift too. Attach your favorite recipe using beans, and you have a thoughtful and useful hostess gift that is certain to be appreciated.
If you are looking for something even more simple, try these candles and corn for your table. All it takes is a clear glass candle holder (any size), some simple white candles, and some plain corn bought at the store. So simple and if you do a row of these down your table it is an easy and beautiful centerpiece for your table.
