10 Thanksgiving Centerpieces that You Can't Kill

In my younger days, I worked for the best floral shop in San Leandro, CA. 

My Boss, was a very petite French Canadian woman called Marge. 
She once commented in the late 80's that no one celebrated
Thanksgiving like they used to, the orders for Thanksgiving
arrangements were down and spirituality it made her sad.
Thanksgiving is a time to stop and say thank you to God and your family.

Just say Thank You.

Let's Bring Thanksgiving back!

Wheat is an American Staple for food and what a striking centerpiece it makes with heights down the length of the table.

Pine cones and candles. 

Scent the pine cones and they should give a mild scent as the candles get warm.
