Decorate your holiday table with a lush wreath of flowers and berries accented with seasonal fruits, vegetables, nuts and preserved leaves . Working in a base of wet floral foam attached to a plastic tray, we will combine flowers and leaves in rich autumn colors with vegetables, fruits, nuts and berries to create a striking harvest centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. The finished wreath measures about 15 across. The center of the ring can comfortably hold candles or a compote.
