Fall Basket
Use a beautiful crafted basket to make a display using dried corn, mini pumpkins, small pinecones, and and gourds.

Cranberries
Fill a clear glass vase up to the top with fresh cranberries. Also, fill a glass bowl with cranberries and place several tealight candles in the bowl amid the berries

Pinecone Warmth Centerpiece
Collect some pretty pinecones and display them in a basket after dipping them in pretty colors of fall paint and allowing them to dry. Intertwine fall leaves.

Memory Table Runner
Start a family tradition using a simple fall colored table runner. Have family and friends write a memory or gratitude using a marker or pen. You can embroider all the writing after the Thanksgiving holiday, and next Thanksgiving you will have a beautiful and special addition to your Thanksgiving table.
