The centerpiece I used is a faux pine Christmas centerpiece like this one with these mercury glass votive candle holders that I transformed into a transitional botanical and fruit look!
I’m so eager to start Christmas decorating this year, I just couldn’t resist decorating for Thanksgiving with this pretty holiday mercury candle centerpiece!
How To Make A Marble Centerpiece Board
Place the faux pine centerpiece on the table and fluff the branches.
Add battery operated tea lights to the mercury glass votive candle holders.
I added one string of battery operated mini lights for some twinkle – intertwining it throughout the entire centerpiece. Hide the battery box under the centerpiece so that it’s less noticeable.
Next I added 7 fresh pears for a fall harvest touch! Buy ones that are not ripe so they last longer! Place the fruit in the centerpiece so that some are facing up and some are upside down to add interest.
Then I went into my flower garden and herb garden and I added clippings of fresh rosemary (smells amazing!), euonymus branches and oak leaves from our backyard. Use whatever fresh greens you have or buy from your grocery store.
Just place them randomly in the centerpiece at different angles, some pointing up, some pointing horizontally and some pointing at angles up and down.
Lastly, I added some faux blue hydrangea flowers to the centerpiece for a pop of beautiful blue! I popped the faux flower heads off their stems and only used the flower heads.
You can also tuck in small bud vases of fresh flowers like roses if you like!
The aim is to give this centerpiece a fuller, more natural look.
Note: The greenery clippings will last two or more days. You can replace the flowers and clippings as they wilt with new fresh greenery! Fresh boxwood and magnolia leaves will dry beautifully and last a long long time.
