Tree Centerpieces: Time to Branch Out with Your Table Displays
Terrarium on a Tree
Terrariums are definitely having their moment right now, but glass containers are so last year. Think outside the planter! Here, succulents and ferns are nestled into balls of angel vine to hang from the bare branches; for the ornaments, Styrofoam balls are painted in green and coated in clumps of reindeer moss.
Dragees are poured into glassine bags for a delectable favor. At the end of the night, guests can pluck them from the verdant branches of this tree.Make the Flavorful Tree
We love lemons for the tart sweetness they add to dinners, tarts, and pies. But how often do we enjoy them straight off the tree? Grow an orange, lemon, or lime tree in a container (under proper care, of course) and the fruit it bears will offer a fragrant, festive centerpiece that's ripe for the plucking.
This "thankful tree" is a sweet centerpiece you can craft ahead of the big feast. As people sit down to eat, ask guests to pick a leaf and write what they're thankful for. Go around table and read their messages, then hang them from the tree's branches. They also don't have to be messages of thanks. They can be well wishes, dreams, hopes, whatever you want.
