Top 4 Edible Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Edible Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Edible Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Thanksgiving is now just a little over two weeks away and it really is time to start thinking about all the little details to make your Thanksgiving celebration memorable. Yes, delicious food matters, but so does your presentation. Today we are focusing on edible Thanksgiving centerpieces.  As much as we adore flowers, we are also very pragmatic and get ridiculously excited when we find fabulous “two-fers” or in other words, products that serve two purposes.  In this case, all four of these ideas are visually interesting and practical. Think DIY vegetable and/or fruit filled cornucopias, fruit turkey arrangements, giant chocolate turkeys, and yummy duos of caramel apple turkeys. Which would we choose? All four! Definitely the chocolate concoctions for the main table centerpieces, a brimming over vegetable cornucopia on the appetizer table, and the fruit turkey on the dessert table (such a fun way to present your healthy dessert option).

Best Food Gifts for the Holidays >> The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

Best Get - The Fruit Company Holiday Gift TowerYesterday (December 6, 2012) I opened my front door and had a wonderful surprise waiting for me.  Jed over at The Fruit Company had sent me The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower to review.  In full disclosure, companies send me “stuff” all the time and very seldom do they make it onto Party Idea {Pros}.  We only post reviews of products we would buy ourselves and 100% recommend to others.

Let's start with the presentation of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • This gift tower is very lovely – large enough to be impressive but not so big as to be gauche. The red, green and white boxes and ribbon capture the holiday spirit perfectly.  We especially like that all the boxes coordinate rather than match.  This gives the entire presentation a modern, chic sensibility.The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower  - Apples, Nuts & Truffles

The contents of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • 1 Pecan, Cherry, Hazelnut Truffles – 3 oz – DELICIOUS – so good in fact that before I had even unpacked all the rest of the boxes, my family had devoured the chocolates.
  • 1 Chocolate Covered Cherries – 4 oz. – These are quite good, if you like cherries in your candy.  Personally, it is not my thing but the chocolate around the cherries was to die for.
  • 1 Mixed Nuts – 4 oz. – Very fresh with just enough salt to satisfy me but not too much salt for my mother-in-law who prefers unsalted nuts.

The fruit was all yummy – among the very best we have ever received.  For a change none of it was over-ripe!

  • 2 Fuji Apple(s) –
  • 3 Bosc Pear(s) –
  • 3 Comice Pear(s)
