Why not combine two tasks this Thanksgiving by making a table centerpiece that doubles as an appetizer? Your guests can nibble while chatting around your beautiful table. And you know what they’ll be talking about? Your awesome edible Thanksgiving centerpiece.

I love these chocolate covered pretzels in a turkey jar from Inside Bru Crew Life. I’ve made the pretzels before, but I never thought of presenting them like Jocelyn did. It’s really fun and I can’t wait to put one together for my family.

Here’s another turkey-themed appetizer that would make a great centerpiece. This turkey cheese ball recipe featuring pretzel “feathers” is provided by Angela of Handmade In The Heartland.

Hallmark has some great Thanksgiving treat ideas. I especially like this turkey cheese ball that’s decorated with almonds, parsley, and assorted veggies.

If you’re making a veggie platter for Thanksgiving day anyway, why not arrange the vegetables in the shape of a turkey. Eating With Food Allergies shows you how.

A Proverbs 31 Wife has great instructions for making a turkey-shaped fruit arrangement. Believe me, it’s a lot less expensive than one of those fruit arrangements you can buy online – and cuter too!

Of course, your centerpiece doesn’t have to take the shape of a turkey. If you have pumpkin left over from Halloween, hollow it out and use it as a vase for your vegetables like this one from Honestly. I bet the kids would eat their veggies if they were offered in this fun manner.

Chica and Jo have a wonderful tutorial for making this bread cornucopia. They use refrigerated bread dough, so you don’t even need to knead;-) I love the fruits and nuts pouring out of the “horn of plenty.”

Snacking In The Kitchen used a recipe from All Recipes to make this beautiful cornucopia. It is filled with cheese and grapes.

Instead of a cornucopia, how about a bread basket. Literally . . . a bread basket! Home Decorating Ideas suggests using this basket recipe for Easter, but it would make a terrific centerpiece for any holiday.

This DIY centerpiece featured on Style Me Pretty combines breads, herbs, and dips. Leana from Amelia Creations tells you how to put together this simple, yet elegant edible centerpiece that tastes as good as it looks.

If your guests saved any room for dessert, they could try Miss CandiQuik’s “Cone-Ucopias.” To make them, start with waffle cones, decorate with melted chocolate, then add sweets. If your guests didn’t save room for dessert, they could easily take these adorable treats home. Either way, they’ll look great on your Thanksgiving table.

Wendy from Around My Family Table s my views about combining food with decorations. This fall popcorn centerpiece would be perfect for guests to snack on while sitting around the table. It is so pretty, too!
