Choosing a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table is tricky: A large vase of flowers blocks everyone's view and hampers conversation, but several smaller arrangements can look skimpy. Solution? A low, narrow arrangement running down the center of the table. We used an overturned galvanized tray to give the centerpiece some height and decorated it with a mix of short and tall pillar candles and natural autumn goodies, including nuts, squash, and yellow apples. Then we layered on mismatched glass jars holding small cuttings of grass, berries, and flowers.
