How to Make an Edible Centerpiece for Thanksgiving

Here’s a twist on the Cornucopia for your Thanksgiving table. Display fruit and nuts in a large bowl as your symbol of abundance and plentiful harvest this year. It can also double as a dessert option for those who are watching what they eat.

Large bowl – I used an antique wooden bowl but a ceramic or silver bowl would work great too

Fruits and nuts in various colors and sizes

Floral picks
I started by covering the bowl with some plastic wrap to protect both the bowl and the fruit. Then I added a piece of floral foam. I left the plastic on it to for protection but that isn’t really necessary.
Then I placed some of the smaller fruit and nuts around the floral foam base and arranged the rest of the fruit on top. I finished by laying a bunch of grapes on top and tucking the nuts in here or there.
