Flowers are usually the centerpiece of choice for the Thanksgiving table. Few things are as beautiful as bright dahlias in orange and yellow, but why not use fresh fruit and vegetables instead? Adding the right dose of color as well as texture, the inclusion of fruits provide the dual function of being edible and eco. Start with a bowl that has personality. I love Oscar de la Renta's new heart-etched footed glass bowl. Hand-blown in Portugal, the bubbled glass has an early American charm. Just the sensibility that is perfect for a Thanksgiving table. After it serves its purpose on the table, the bowl can elevate the everyday as a popcorn bowl on movie night.
