Fruit decorations offer economical and tasty Thanksgiving table decorating ideas
From lovely light green to beautiful blazing red, fresh pears are a natural element to incorporate in your fall decorating. Here are some easy ideas.
In a small, water-filled glass, arrange fresh flowers. Center the glass inside a large clear vase. Place small pears in the large vase to cover the glass
Pear Candle Display
Cut a brown abaca mat to fit your table. Place the mat in the center of your table. Cut a wide ribbon 1-1/2 inches longer than the mat. Center the ribbon down the length of the mat; tuck ends under the mat. Look for pears in assorted sizes. Cut the tops off of three pears . Scoop out the inside, making an opening for a tea light candle in each. Arrange the pears, hydrangea blossoms, hypericum berries and eucalyptus on the mat.
Pear Place Card
On coordinating card stock, cut out circles and leaf shapes. Write a name on each leaf. Rub the edges of the circles and leaves with brown chalk. Align the outer edges of each leaf and circle; punch a hole through both pieces. Thread brown cord through the hole and tie to the stem of a small pear. Set on a plate at each place setting.
