    Bountiful Candles With Vegetables

    What better way to celebrate the fall harvest than by creating Thanksgiving candle centerpieces using a feast of gorgeous green vegetables? To make: Stretch two sturdy rubber bands around a white pillar candle, then tuck green beans or asparagus stalks under the bands. Cover the rubber bands with satin ribbon. To make the artichoke candleholder, cut the top off and hollow out a bit of the center. Set a candle in the hole. Decorate the platter with a few white mums and hypericum berry sprigs.

    Editor's Tip: For safety reasons, do not let candles burn unattended. Only let candles burn for an hour or two at a time, and do not burn them down to the rubber band.
