Rustic wood and candles

Bring a rustic look to your Thanksgiving table with this centerpiece idea built off a piece of wood or weathered lumber. You'll add in clusters of grapes along with candles of various size to create a real mixed media centerpiece.

This got me thinking...lay o runner of wax paper topped with parchment paper ...down the center of the table & make a eatable spread, candle or two, in a wave pattern or s curves pattern..leaving room to sit food your serving amoungst ... to look nice with or without food on table,...use quartered oranges, melons, of course grapes, assorted nuts like pistachios, peanuts, and shelled almonds a& pecans, lemon wedges etc enjoy before during and after dinner, kids table too.
