Yellow Topiary Arrangement
Take this trio of topiary treats -- a lesson in the power of repetition plus a few simple tricks. Dress up three cones of floral foam with sunflowers and button chrysanthemums above "cuffs" of fuzzy kangaroo paws (Anigozanthos). Their harvest golds will glow like lanterns above the black urns.
Thanksgiving Centerpiece with Pomegranates, Tulips, and Roses
A Thanksgiving table demands a feast for the eyes with all the trimmings. But bear in mind that well-mannered centerpieces should never block guests' views of one another. A low container is just what's needed, leaving room for lavish helpings of pomegranates, red viburnum berries, tulips, roses, and ranunculus served up with a bronzy-green magnolia-leaf wreath.
"I love that this arrangement has the feel of a wild, late-season meadow and is made with items that cost very little or can be found in the yard,” says Martha Stewart Living's Kevin Sharkey. For a low profile that encourages dinner conversation, he set a block of floral foam into a shallow pewter dish and created a dome of sedum flowers, filling in the spaces with purple Queen Anne’s lace, mauve hydrangeas, round star scabiosa, fuzzy foxtail grass, and spiked sea holly.

Staple birch bark to a pine box to create a rustic vessel for this arrangement. Use an assortment of flowers, foliage, and fruit to create a custom centerpiece. (Or could use double sided tape to tape on the birch bark and then wrap around the vase a couple of times with wired twine.)
